Verified Patient Reviews
Very unhappy with the doctor's attitude and willingness to listen to my symptoms. Seemed to not be very knowledgeable on my condition compared to other doctors.
She was very good. She gave me all the info I needed even though it was just for a quick checkup she even told me what my health status should be at my age and weight level which is pretty awesome not ever doctor does that and I was pretty amazed I will continue to keep her as my doctor
Great experience. Just came in for a regular annual check-up. Very informative, helpful, and quick.
Dr. Rao is caring and considerate. I found Dr. Rao after a few bad experiences in Austin. I will not switch doctors. I would rather switch insurance than switch from Dr. Rao or pay out of pocket. The care is top notch.
She addresses the issues and provides supplemental things to do to help one feel better. She genuinely cares about her patients.
got seen quickly,staff was friendly,and helpfull,
Very good listener.
She was very nice and professional.
Dr Rao and her staff are always fantastic. They answer all my questions and are beyond kind. I recommend her to my friends and family all the time
Overall, the visit was good. I did have to wait about 20 minutes before they led me into a room but the young lady in the front was really nice and apologetic. When I saw Dr. Rao, she asked me a series of questions to determine what I may have based on my symptoms. She also offered some suggestions on what I could do differently. I didn't feel rushed at all and she seems to be a good listener. She also answered all of my questions without any hesitation. The only concern that I have is that she didn't run any test. Ultimately, I don't doubt her diagnosis but it's more for my peace of mind.
I really appreciated how Dr. Rao took the time to explain my condition and how my treatment was going to work. I walked out feeling really confident in my care.
Dr Rao is friendly yet professional and explains things in a way we understand without talking over our heads. My family really enjoys having her as our doctor.
She was willing to listen and I trust her!
Dr. Rao was extremely thorough and it was a pleasure to meet her and her staff.
Dr Rao & her entire staff are professional & efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Rao.
A great location, a decent office staff. I just went for my first appointment and am glad to have a new primary care physician. Dr. Rao is kind and professional.
Dr. Rao is very thorough with her work. She wants to get you better but also wants to make sure you are in best of health. 10/10 would recommend.
Dr Rao explained everything really well and put me at ease. I am very happy to have her as my doctor.
Anazing doctor, listens patiently and answers all the questions in a detailed manner.. wait time was just a few minutes.. would definitely recommend Dr. Rao as a primary care doctor!
Dr. Rao was extremely attentive, thorough, and informative. She addressed all of my concerns and helped me create a plan to ensure I am on the right track.
She was very professional and knowledgable, and listened well.
I highly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Jalaja Rao, it appears that I have finally found a doctor who is kind and patient, Dr. Rao really listened to me. I thank God that I am in good health, but on the rare occasions that I have had to visit a doctor, I have not had a better experience or enjoyed my visit as much as I have with Dr, Rao.
She's a great doctor. Very attentive and thorough, even for a regular checkup.
Dr. Rao answered all my questions as a new patient, took plenty of time, and calmed my few worries. She recommended other specialists I might see in the future if needed, and discussed care options and ranges in the Austin area. I definitely will be going to her as my preferred provider.
Was able to schedule appointment only a day out as a new patient. Got the peace of mind I needed along with a flu shot!
Dr. Rao was very quick to address what I came in for and was extremely informative with everything we talked about.
Dr Jalaja is excellent. She waste no time in getting things done. She even manage to get an appt with a specialist the same day. I love the fact she is not a band aid DR.
She was very patient and I felt like she was really paying attention to what my issues were. She took time to get to know my history and made sure that I was taken care of.
Office was nothing fancy, but the team was good and got me what I needed.
She googled every question I had and seemed rushed. I have never had a doctor browse the internet during an appointment
My first visit with Dr Rap. She seemed intelligent and professional.
Everything from start to finish was easy. Scheduling an appointment was a breeze. Filling out the new patient paperwork and checking in online was awesome. There was no wait when I arrived and the appointment went really well. I had a follow up question that I posted in the portal and I had a response in less than an hour. Excellent service.
Great visit. I will definitely will be going back
She was very helpful and you could tell she really wanted the best for her patients. I really appreciated how helpful the staff and nurse was.
Wait time was actually less than 10 minutes which is excellent in my opinion.
Although the wait time was a little more than expected, I truly appreciate the kindness and manner I was treated, and I would take that over wait time any day. My doctor was prepared and gave me positive and helpful feedback. Will definitely recommend this doctor and office to friends and family!
I wasn't in a rush so i didn't mind the wait. Staff was friendly and professional. No complaints.
Very good listener. I appreciate that she gave me clear instructions concerning my condition and let me leave with a minimal treatment plan.
Dr. Rao was very patient and helpful! Would definitely recommend!
Very thorough and attentive
Aside from being seen almost an hour after my appointment time, everything else was great! Nice staff. Dr. Rao explained everything to me and listened to my concerns.
She should have given more time to me. She was in rush and I am not satisfied with that!
One of the best doctor that I am pleased to visit.
She is extremely personable and knowledgable. I am very glad I came here.
Really liked her style. She had a very calming effect and was able to give me great advice on different issues.
Great Experience, Dr is very Nice , Dr listen to all your problems and suggest the appropriate prescriptions.
Primary care was a good care..!
She has been great so far.
I didn't have a chance to talk to the doctor about all the issues that I wanted to. I had two health problems I wanted to talk about, but after we discussed the first one she just ended the appointment. She didn't ask if there was anything else. I was really confused, it felt like I was being told to leave because there were other patients to get to.
Excellent. Dr. Rao is wonderful. She is so kind and knowledgable and spends so much time with me every time I see her. Top notch physician.
Great experience! She addressed my concerns and needs and was very knowledgable.
This was my 2nd well woman exam with Dr Rao. I really appreciate that she makes sure to go over all aspects of my health, for example, asking about my eye and dental exams, calcium and vitamin D, exercise, and making sure I'm up to date with my shots, PAP, and mammogram, etc. She's real easy to talk to, and gladly answers my questions.
Efficient, thorough, helpful
Dr. Rao was very nice! Her office staff was very friendly. I look forward to my next doctors appointment.
Dr. Rao is amazing. She always spends time with me, talks to me, listens, has great advice. She doesn't just instantly write a prescription, she has great homeopathic and natural remedy suggestions. She is encouraging and patient. LOVE HER. I have recommended her to many friends. Her office staff is nice as well and I am usually seen pretty timely.
Jalaja was very pleasant. She explained everything very well, and was very helpful getting me the right type of prescriptions. This was my fist visit to this doctors office, so it remains to be seen if this continues. My first impressions were very positive of Dr. Rao though!
Dr. Rao is a very nice doctor. She is my general practitioner since moving to Texas and I've had no complaints.
Love coming here! She does the full scope and doesn't nit pick about what the appointment was scheduled for! I forgot I needed a booster shot and rather than make me come back, as I have had other doctors do in the past, she gave it me right then and we went on to our normal appointment! She also answers any of my questions even if my visit was for something else. I used to hate going to the doctor because it didn't feel thorough or that they cared really, but I have had 2 visits here and I am very pleased!
Dr.Rao is the best!!! So happy I found her as my doctor!!She seems to care and very professional!!!
Knowledgable, personable. Yet the wait to see the Dr the first time was a bit lengthy.
Dr. Rao was so sweet and really took her time trying to figure out everything possibly going on with me. She even gave me a free sample of a probiotic to help with my stomach to be on Amoxicillin.
Doctor Rao is very professional. Take time hearing all symptoms. She asked a lot of questions to be sure about diagnosis.
Great doctor, felt extremely comfortable and she did a great job explaining things to me. Was in an out super quickly, too.
She was great! I would definitely go back to her again!
First time visit so I knew there would be paperwork and the wait would be a little longer but I was in and out in just over 30 minutes. Not to bad by my standards.
Dr. Rao was very prompt and kind and I felt like she was very thorough in my visit.
Needed a new Physician. Started looking around and found Dr. Rao had good ratings so I gave her a chance. I had a very positive experience and think she will be great. Very polite, knowledgeable and professional.
Will the people that works there are very nice and right alway there helped me with the answers l had ,l give them A
I trust Dr.Rao and find that she is always correct with her assessments ans treatments.
Dr. Rao has always been professional and takes the time to listen to your concerns. Her staff is always polite and efficient. I would highly recommend Dr. Rao to anyone.
I was very impressed with her. I didn't have to wait long to see her, and she was very nice and helped me a lot.
It was great. I don't like the doctors that only allocate 15 minutes and if you have anything else to discuss other than the thing you came for, they make you make another appointment. Dr. Rao wasn't like that! Very thorough asked many questions (I was a new patient) and looked into the concerns I brought to her. I'm happy to have picked her for my pcp!
Good office and good doctor, was able to help me.
She was great, and was really helpful in talking about all the things I wanted to talk about.
She was good, but the office was dreadfully slow. Got in one hour after appt time. Not acceptable to me.
Extremely friendly and helpful. Really listened to me and my concerns, and made adjustments to her prescription based on them. She was really great!
