I have been a patient of Dr. Rao's for about 4 years now. While I have not had to visit her often, I have always found her to be caring, thorough, and knowledgeable. She is my primary care physician and does not hesitate to give me a referral as needed or even if I request a referral. I would recommend her. The wait time in the practice is frequently too long.

My primary care doctor moved and left her patient load with Dr. Rao's practice. The practice itself is very poorly run with wait times often exceeding an hour. Dr. Rao is often unavailable and I ended up having to see 3 different doctors over the course of 6 months. Dr. Rao is very reserved and seems completely uninterested in hearing what's going on (she seems focused on getting in and out quickly). Overall I had a horrible experience and am glad to have switched doctors!

I have saw Dr. Rao for about 3 years before I had to change pcp's because my job and insurance changed. I just began seeing her again and she has really been awesome. I feel as if she really cares and does what she needs to get to the bottom of things. She even called me herself instead of the nurse to discuss my lab results. She will continue to be my primary doctor as long as I have her as an option. She is a wonderful doctor.

I have been Dr. Rao's patient for about three years. She is always pleasant and very interested in any medical issues I have. She goes over all of my lab work with me, ensuring that I understand the results, and we discuss possible changes I need to make in order to improve my health. I believe that she sees the benefits of her patients attempting to make lifestyle changes if at all possible instead of going on new medications. It is refreshing to have a doctor that encourages alternatives to medicating every symptom. I feel she is concerned about me and wants me to be in the best health possible.

This young doctor is a kind lady but is too conservative when it comes to prescribing. Any infection usually requires several visits to resolve as she under-prescribes and prefers the older,often less effective antibiotics. I have chronic, multiple health problems, yet she seldom hears my input as to what works and what does not. She may improve with experience.
