How likely are you to recommend Dr. Rao?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Rao and the entire group of Doctors and staff at this facility is a rare combination of knowledge and compassion as well as respect that is sadly becoming rare for healthcare providers these days. Dr. Rao and his staff always puts me at ease and the care they provide has allowed me to enjoy nearly all the foods I love without discomfort. My digestive system was a mess, but now it's literally a "piece of cake". Thanks for the professional and caring staff, I have one less stressful thing in my life.
