I happened upon Dr Rao when the previous Dr. I was seeing retired. I was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE) around three years ago. After going back and forth to the doctor for 18 months.It started with a dime size bald spot 9 that has grown to 4 plus inches by 1 1/2 inches ) on my head , thinning of the rest of my hair, loosing my eyebrows, along with a lot of other symptoms that other doctors brushed off as Menopause . Recently over the past 8 months or so I started to have episodes of intense heat in my face , that left my skin looking burnt and thickened. Which is called a Malar Rash. Dr Rao suggested I be treated with BroadBand Laser and an anti inflammatory cream that really helps.I was somewhat sceptical but after 2 treatments I have noticed a Big difference in the colour of my face. I still have the episodes of flushing in my face but it does calm down afterwards. But not only did Dr Rao help me deal with my skin conditions he was also very concerned about the other things that were happening with my body and was shocked to hear I hadn't been referred to a Rheumatologists and asked his nurse to "call" in a refferal for me. For the first time in over three years I actually had a Doctor listen to what I was saying . Dr. Rao had an intern in with him the last visit and I told him if he was to take anything from his Mentor , he should study his bedside manner. The attention, sincere concern, friendliness and professionalism Dr Rao and his staff show their patients are excellent. This Lupus thing does so many negative things to a body and at times can really bring you down. But on leaving his office , I have to say, I left with a smile on my face. Thank you Dr. Rao and staff for caring . Linda J Nielsen

I was referred to Dr. Rao several years ago for some medical skin issues. At that time he was at the University starting out. I was nervous at first seeing a dermatologist but Dr. Rao has great bedside manner; he communicated clearly and was always sincere and genuine about my well-being. I always admired the fact that he remembered his patient's names and facts about their lives. Then one day I was struck by a terrible misfortune which left me scarred and hospitalized for an extended period of time. During that time I was left bitter and depressed at this cruel and unfair world. But luck to be behold, I met up again with Dr. Rao and unsurprisingly he was extremely concerned, and helpful with my conditions such as scarring. There's a saying that that to truly identify a person's character is to see what that person does when no one is watching, as well as how that person treats those in a worse situation then they are. At that point I was at an extreme low, but Dr. Rao and his staff have been tremendous at restoring my confidence and faith in humanity. If Dr. Rao is willing to help someone who has lost so much and at such a low In life, you know that he will treat you anyone regardless of their situation or status with the same superior service as well. This testimonial is evident in his office, which is always busy when I visit. To accommodate the larger influx of patients Dr. Rao had to relocate several times to larger places; now his current office is a large, epic, futuristic "Space Ship" from Star Wars / Star Trek. The technology that is out today is not perfect yet; there are still areas that needs improvement on, BUT, you can count on Dr. Rao's office on being up to date with the most modern technology and techniques available as of date -- and with the rapid pace of Regenerative Medicine, the future could only get better. A huge shout out to Marina and Nicole for their dedication, compassion, attention to details, and their upbeat spirits. Dr. Rao has truly been the unspoken Hero in my life. I know he has gone out of his way and helped many patients in similar skin/dermatological problems as well. Sometimes he does not get the recognition he deserves because he is very busy focusing on his number 1 priority - his patients; his main goal is to make better people's well-being first and foremost. As you can see this is evident in many of the positive reviews which reflects his work and results. The review numbers are small compared to the thousands he has helped to change their lives for the better. Dr. Rao and his team has helped me during my good times and also during my bad times over the years. Extending my heartfelt thanks to him is only the beginning, I truly hope to show his level of dedication, compassion and service for the world to see. Thank you deeply Dr. Rao, and all your staff for helping lift me up during this terrible period in my life. Life has definitely gotten better since that terrible period of my life; it's still not normal (yet) like before the accident, but with Dr. Rao and his staff's help, I'm able to smile a little more and lift my head higher to face the challenges of life with a little more confidence.

All three of my daughters have had pretty good success from Dr. Rao in the treatment of their acne. However, he now has a nurse practioner seeing the patients and you are booked with her and only is she feels there is an issue does he come into the room. The NP gave my daughter a face creme that she had extreme issues with even though my daughter protested. She was told to try it anyway. She did with bad results and had to stop midway through the course of treatment because it was causing her too many problems. The NP gave my daughter incorrect advice to have a pap smear prior to using accutane even though she has not been sexually active. She referred her to her family physician for this procedure. The GP didn't do the pap but rather did the necessary blood work which wasn't recommended by the NP. The GP was also required to write the mandatory birth control med prescription. No follow up appointment has been booked but the accutane two month course has run out.My daughter asked questions of the NP and they were not answered. I will not let her go in alone again even though she is over the age of 18. I think the office needs to be upfront on who they are booking you with.

I had a magnificent experience with Dr. Rao and his team today. I saw him with a little bit of weight, but it was certainly worth it. He treated my acne, and asked if there were any questions, answering them thoroughly. I feel confident in his knowledge and I am certain that my face will improve. Look forward to returning back shortly.

Like many others mentioned, I waited several months to see Dr. Rao, and am very disappointed at the service I received. Prior to even meeting me, Dr. Rao had filled out my prescription. He walked into the room, handed me the pre-written prescription, and was done. He did not address any of my questions, and in regards to my acne, simply told me to moisturize. I am very disappointed, and none of my skin issues were solved.
