Dr. Rao is amazing. I'm truly impressed that such a busy doctor would take the time to listen to me, diagnose my health issues, recommend solutions, and even add an additional test that became apparent was needed. I think that he has a real concern for his patients and wants them to get well by finding the underlying causes of the symptoms, not just managing them.
