Dr. Rao is an outstanding Dr. My family and many friends are also seeing him. I have referred many pt. to Dr. Rao. I feel he is the best Dr. In the Wheaton system. He listens to his patients, he goes above and beyond for his patients. May he never retire in my life time.

Dr Rao sees me once a year for a check up which I consider to be thorough. He answers any questions I have regarding my getting older and experiencing new aches and pains. Seems genuinely concerned.

Dr. Rao has been my primary care doctor for many years, and I truly like him and have confidence in him. However, I have noticed that he has less time to spend actually talking with me b/c he has to do so much on the computer. I sometimes feel that he is preoccupied when I tell him something as he must do so much documenting on the computer. Over the last year or so, I've felt rushed at times and felt as thought I can't discuss everything I'd like with him as he is on a time schedule and must spend so much time on the computer. Again, I understand that it's not his fault, but as a result, I feel the level of patient care is suffering.

I don't always feel confident that all of my issues are being taken seriously - and not always confident that I'm being correctly diagnosed.
