Complications after what should have been simple surgery, left me in severe pain, have had to seek treatment elsewhere to correct his mistakes. Nice enough guy-just not someone you want doing your surgery.

Dr Rao performed the surgery on my hand...3 broken fingers with significant damages to my knuckles. He did a great job and his staff was great.
