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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
