It was fast and professional. Dr. Rao listen and also answers all your questions. And they pretty much have everything in one building blood test and urine, weight loss, to endocrinology and etc. Like a one stop stop medical building otherthen the other doctors office where they have you driving around different areas. The waiting area is very spacious lots of chairs for people to sit at and the waiting room is very clean and up to date also the exam room is too clean and up to date glad I decided to change my doctor

Very little to no wait time. Thorough in covering all you medical needs at time of visit. Ask and answer your questions to assure you understand. Read and go over your medical records and treatment with a fine tooth comb. Beforeleaving his office, he makes sure you are satisfied with your care. Consult with specialty providers for example kidney doctor for additional treatment planning. Love this doc!
