What People Say About Dr. Tara Rao, MD
Reply
Was rushed out of the office so quickly after waiting over 40 minutes. A 5 minute appointment is not sufficient. So disappointed. I had thought she was a good doctor, but at this level of rush she made a mistake on me that may cause a bigger scar than necessary. Then she made me feel bad for wanting to have more than 5 minutes of her time. As an excuse she said, 'I have patients waiting....' What am I? Very unsatisfactory.
