I have been struggling with finding a doctor in this area, but now the search is over because I love the treatment I received by Dr Rao and at Southern Maryland Medical Group! Service is quick and efficient and I walked out better understanding where I am health wise and what my next steps are.

Dr.Rao is very interesting in building a relationship with his patients and as a new patient this is what I wanted someone who was interested in my present and past health and he is genuinely concerned, love my new doctor and would recommend him.
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. Before leaving 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!

He was great. Very upbeat and positive. Really takes time for his patients. Makes you feel as if you are the only one.. Highly recommended.
Dr. Rao is fantastic! The office is neat, clean and efficient. As a new patient, I expected a long wait and lots of forms but to my surprise, I was called in before I finished the first form. The assistant did preliminary tests (BP, weight, temp, etc.) and in less than 5 minutes, I was in with the doctor. He was patient, listened to my complaints, asked questions and responded to mine, recommended actions and made me feel comfortable. I am more than pleased with Dr. Rao and his great staff.
He is very professional with the way he treat his patients.
Simply amazing doctor. He was professional and very friendly!
My visit went well. The doctor is very attentive to your concerns. He takes his time with you. I would highly recommend this doctor.
This was my first visit to the office. The staff was friendly and professional. The office was a bit small and not very advanced with the latest technology, but I would return to see Dr Rao.
They did not have the paperwork I filled out when making my appointment, so I had to fill out again. It's difficult for me to write as I am right handed and my right hand, wrist, and elbow are very painful when I have to write. That was the most unsatisfactory situation with my visit. Love the Doc.
