Dr. Rao always seems to be in a rush. in all the appointments I have had with her over the 4 years of seeing her she has spent the most of 10 minutes in the room with me addressing the medical concerns. She has also misdiagnosed my medical conditions twice that prevented me from being ableto recover quicker. it\'s very frustrating!!!

I\'m 62 years old and I must say that Dr. Rao is the most caring provider whom I have ever had. She has spent more time trying to assist me with my healthcare than any other doctor I have had. On one occasion when I was her last patient for the day, she stayed so long with me that when we left, most of the lights were turned off and the cleaning crew was almost done. She treats me with great respect as if I were her own father. I hope she never leaves Scott & White, and while I receive all my care from Scott & White doctors, if she were to leave, I would go wherever she went to. In addition to being a wonderful doctor, she is an incredible person.

she didn\'t explain the range or levels of blood work I asked about peri menopause and menopause, instead she made a clerk to call me to make an appointment with my OB. why she made me spent money and time in a blood work that she didn\'t even take the time to explain? I am completely disappointed about how rude was just to refer me to an OB without explaining anything and thru an office clerk

dr Rao is a very sweet woman, works hard, and and is competent. she appears to know her job and works to be thorough. however, I do not trust her decisions. she does not know me well enough to make certain decisions for my illness that would consider my health history. I would say also, in a more general matter, she is chasing a zebra instead a horse, again not intaking my history. also, it has been several tImes difficult to get in contact with her office, to the extent that I have sought second opinions at other clinics. my difficulties may very well have to do with the time pressures that your system imposes on your physicians: time for detailed histories is in short available.

Dr. Rao was very friendly. She took time to discuss the problem. Explained how the medicine would help the problem. Set up x-ray to see what the problem was. Set up physical therapy appointment to help with the pain. After my appointment with Dr. Rao, I understood what was the problem could be and and she gave me several options to help alleviate the pain.

The provider was in a hurry to finish the appointment. She missed the important exam. I would like to go to a provider who makes me feel important during the visit. I understand that she probably has many patients waiting for her. But my time and the money is important for the visit and I concern about about my health as well.
