Dr. Rao and his staff are very thorough and provide good care and follow up on any issues in a timely manner. The practice is very busy and in high demand. So be prepared to wait at times to see any of the Doctors that practice at Gastroenterology Associates. I have had 2 colonoscopies and a endoscopy performed by Dr Rao and was satisfied with the procedures and his staff.
