His “bedside manner” is second to none and his empathy is unquestionable. If asked, I would highly recommend Dr. Rao in any Gastroenterology problems."

"Allows takes his time to find out details of what the problem is. Offers suggestions that don’t require prescription medicine. Also reviews past test and schedules any test needed. Small language barrier but he slows down and can be understood perfectly. He is always happy and that makes me happy. I’m not sure why I had to wait so long ( 45 min) in the waiting area but was a comfortable waiting area with plenty of seating for 6 ft spacing."
