      Not only is Dr. Rao great behind the mask in surgery but he's even better in person when he's talking to you. Best attribute he has in that realm is HE LISTENS. Additionally he has a great sense of humor, which is very important to me as I'm usually there to get bad news. AND his Nurse practitioners (NP) Michele Smith is EXCELLENT with all the attributes of Dr. Rao's. They make a superb team in the office as well as in the surgical suite. My highest recommendations for these wonderful people!
