Patient Comments (2)
in Underwood, ND |
He is very thorough. He answers all of my questions. He is very kind, caring, and compassionate. I would recommend him in a heart beat. The only problem, is the answering service there. They are not very good at answering the phones or returning your calls. This is very frustrating for people that do live outside of the Bismarck area.

I would recommend Dr. Rao to anyone needing help with breast cancer. He is a gifted oncologist and a very caring professional.
