The gentleman at the front desk was very personable and patient while I asked a few questions. Also, the gentleman who took my blood pressure, etc was kind and personable and ensured that my vaccine was administered without discomfort. Dr. Raowas very understanding and took the time to listen to everything I had to say about my symptoms and my history. The lab tech was very efficient, but did not say much at all. It almost felt like I was an inconvenience.

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.

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 aseries 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.
