I called at 10:45 am on a Saturday for an appt for my mom and they were able to see her before noon. The doctor was friendly, very concerned about the medical issue and put my mom at ease. My mom felt like she had actually been seen and listened to by a doctor. Other doctors she has visited for the same condition were not as concerned in getting my mom healed. Within days of taking her prescription she was feeling much better.

Dr. Rao is an excellent doctor whose care I fully trust. She takes a personal interest in her patients, follows up on them. She explains very clearly what she is doing and why; she warns you about the side effects of the meds she prescribes. She takes time to sit and discuss with you about your treatments and options. More importantly she is extremely pleasant, makes you feel comfortable, returns your phone calls  ........

I have been a patient of Dr. Rao for many years.  My appointments always run on time - which is very unusual for a doctor's office.  She is very knowledgeable, thorough and always makes me feel comfortable throughout my appointment.  Staff is very helpful and kind as well.  One thing, I am always impressed with is how fast they follow-up.  If you are looking for a good primary care doctor, look no further :)
