I was struggling with skin infections and was waiting to see a dermatologist where I live which was a 6 month wait. I was willing to travel to see someone and contacted Dr. Rao's clinic. Not only did they fit me in within the week. After my appointment I have having some further issues and was able to email personally with Dr. Rao to further get his expertise. I was so impressed by his willingness to help and answer all my questions. He is so helpful, extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him and his wonderful staff. He is truly a physician who cares about his patients.

I seen this physician for my sons eczema. He was dismissive, rude, cut me off before I could say anything or ask a question. Didn't care about his history and was in a rush to get me out of his office! He wrote a prescription for a medication we already tried and didn't work. He didn't even look at my sons body where his eczema was, said he was just like the 60 other cases he sees per week... even though my son is one 4 different steroid creams at once and bandages for open wounds... but that's "normal"?! Horrible horrible doctor!! I will be sure to tell everyone I know to go elsewhere!

Dr. Jaggi Rao, MD, FRCPC (Dermatology)'s response
Dear patient and our patient's parent, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are extremely sorry that you are feeling this way. We are confident that this is due to some sort of misunderstanding as this is not usual for our practice. Therefore, we sincerely apologize. We appreciate you bringing this up to our attention and we wish we could address it with you in person. It is unfortunate that you are not giving us a second chance. It hearts our feelings to be called "horrible" when we always strive to do our best to help. We understand that someone else treated your son, but we have not. Every condition takes time, consistency and patience to treat. Familiar prescription does not mean lack of interest or negligence. We are sorry if this was the impression you've got. Patients' trust and loyalty is very important to us. It makes us sad that you are not giving us a fair chance to help your son. Kind Regards, Rao Dermatology.

I completely agree with the many listings which demonstrate the positive experience with Dr. Rao and his team/clinic. They are all professional, kind and very competent. BUT, they are quite busy, so be sure to get all your questions asked or email or call them later if you have more. I'm very happy with my results and would recommend the clinic to anyone desiring honest and capable treatment.

I saw Dr. Rao the first time approx 7 years ago. My skin suddenly accelerated with the aging process and I was devastated. I did have the laser treatment done on my face, though didn't see much of a difference. Dr. Rao was kind, was knowledgeable and told me the straight facts, for which I appreciate, even though I wished to hear a better outcome. I then developed little cysts of some sort on my eyelids. He lasers them off and did not charge me, I believe because he knew I was a single parent at the time. I would recommend this doctor to anyone. Caring and professional.

Dear Patient, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We greatly appreciate it. We are happy we were able to be there for you. Thank you for your patience, trust and loyalty to us.

Great experience all round at this clinic. Been to several centers where that was not the case. Good atmosphere and professional staff. Doctor was also great, as mentioned many times before. Downside: hard doctor to see...very busy.

Very kind and lovely dermatologist. He came to Fort McMurray to do a clinic this week, when no one else did so for months. I was waiting almost a year to see someone with my horrible psoriasis, and he was very patient, kind and compassionate. He prescribed a more advanced treatment that is going to be safer than my cream regimen, and I'm sure it will clear me faster. Looking forward to following up with Dr. Rao in Edmonton. Thank you so much!

I was refered to doctor Rao after lip injection complications occurred (from a different clinic, in another city) . Dr.Rao took me under his wing as if I was a patient of his from the get go. He is more than accommodating, always on time and so knowledgeable. He truly makes you feel like your his only patient for the day - he never makes it feel as if your being rushed or your concerns are not legitimate. I would highly recommend Dr.Rao to anyone!
