My wife and I are both under Doctor Rao's care, and very grateful to have her as our physician. Dr. Rao is one of the best physicians that I have come across. I am a retired U. S. Army officer and have served all over the US, Europe and the Middle East. It is unusual to find someone of Dr. Rao's talent, expertise and professionalism. Dr. Rao listens to our issues and we respect and trust her advice implicitly. R
