Ratings for Dr. Purnima I. Rao
The first time I saw Dr Rao I was just going for a Well Woman exam... That exam was covered by my insurance plan. She asked me of my family history in which I advise her of cancer in my family. Then she schedule a biopsy which requires a prescription. Then my free Well Woman exam became a Doctors Visit, $65.00 copay.. Everything came out ok.. The second appointment was awful. I showed up with no instructions for the biopsy .. The nurse asked for a urine sample which I barely gave because I used the restroom. She said it only required five drops for urine. Not pregnant. Then she asked if I had taken Motrin and i said ,No, why.... She looked at me funny. Then the doctor came in . Then started the painful procedure which lasted more than 15 minutes.. That was it .... I was hurting no remorse from her.. As I was leaving the desk nurse kept trying to show me the way out... I was trying to talk to the doctor and nurse but this desk nurse was like a Pitbull throwing me out. Like I was the bad person... Please don't go to her very bad doctor and nurses ... I am still bleeding from the procedure and had to call in sick from work the next day....
Very rude and arrogant. I have been a patient of Kelsey-Seybold for 25 years and am a woman in my late seventies. She was totally inflexible and demanded I tolerate her get-to-know you sales pitch. Did everything she could to intimidate me into walking out of the appointment.
I consider myself so lucky to have Dr Rao as my doctor. As a doctor she always treated me beyond and above what I expect from a doctor. She is very caring and ready to listen with a compassionate heart. I never felt a strange feeling either with Dr Rao or her staff. In fact they all make you to feel one among them. No long waiting time. Any time if I need help from a doctor from her specialty I would definitely go to Dr Rao. I would highly recommend Dr Rao to anyone in need. I would like to thank Dr Rao and her staff for their amazing service.
I would not recommend her because she is a doctor that like to perform unnecessary c-sections,even when it is not required. She does not care about the patient feelings. She perform a c-section on me that was not necessary, that is effecting me emotionally. If u don't want a c-section do not take her as your doctor.
