I was referred to Dr. Rao regarding a thyroid issue. However, I didn't see any difference in expertise than a regular family physician provides. Her method is take T4 and TSH measurements, prescribe T4 medicine until they are within limits. That what Dr. Rao and the family physician did. So why pay the extra for a specialist? She didn't feel comfortable trying a combination of T3 and T4. She calls herself a traditional endocrinologist. However, if pressed she will reluctantly do T3, but her initial reaction was to recommend an endocrinologist who does use T3 and T4. So why pay the extra expense for her over a regular physician?

Dr. Rao is very professional and makes you feel comfortable. She is extremely knowledgeable and explains why she recommends a certain procedure or medication in a way that is easy to understand. She diagnosed my thyroid cancer when another MD did not. She saved my life! I highly recommend her and we are fortunate to have her in Indiana.

Dr.Rao has an excellent bedside manner. She listens, she is knowledgable, and she cares. She is even conscientious of the fact that medical care and specialists can be expensive. She makes sure that you get the care you need within your financial means. That was a whole new concept to me. She is the whole package we hope for in our doctors.

Dr. Rao & her staff are incredibly welcoming & helpful. A huge plus is I don't ever have to wait more than 10-15 minutes from the time I arrive to the time I see the doctor; something lacking in the healthcare industry nowadays. I drive over two hours to come HERE because of their utmost excellence in care & medical professionalism. Dr. Rao is highly skilled with the uncommon diagnoses. You're more than just a number here: I highly recommend them.
