Verified Patient Reviews
Appointment was kept short and sweet. Staff is very friendly, and the secretary up front took time to work out insurance issues with me. Although it did feel a bit weird being told to completely undress, when Dr. Rao only checked my ears and mouth...
The doctor and medical assistant were nice The secretary not so much
Overall friendly, welcoming staff. Negative remarks about using marijuana from Dr. Rao though. As a medical marijuana patient, this was a huge turn off. Her "facts" about marijuana were really just common myths, it was disappointing to hear a medical professional know so little about a drug that many patients rely on. I felt judged for using medicine that works better for me than common over the counter medicines. This doctor is probably a great fit for some people but if you use marijuana for any reason, they will discourage that.
Great visit! First time at this office and they are very polite and ready to help in any way.
She took a lot of time to understand my medical history and wasn't afraid to offer suggestions for continued good health. Really great bedside manner.
she is exllent i love her.
She seems to be a very smart person. I like the fact that she didnt push medications as a first intervention. The idea that there may be other alternatives makes me feel like she wants to treat people rather than push them aside and hand them a script. It was a new experience and I appreciate all she has to offer. With this being my first appointment I hope she keeps this impression (which it seems like she will) for as along as she is my doctor.
