Very busy clinic, but quite efficient and methodical. I appreciate getting down to it, and was impressed by the doctor and his staff. It's clear they know what they're doing.

I had a great experience at this Dermatology Centre. Dr. Rao accommodated me though I was quite anxious, frantic and scared of my skin. He was reassuring and calm. He is a great doctor with compassion and confidence. I'm happy that my skin is better...didn't think it would ever happen. Thank u. Thank u.

Dr. Rao was very kind and patient with my number of skin conditions and answered every single one of them. He and his team are very compassionate and generous. He was able to even get me trade samples by writing a letter to a pharmaceutical company. My skin is greatly improved thanks to him. I couldn't be any happier and am very very grateful. Thank you so much.

Dr. Jaggi Rao is the worst dermatologist in Edmonton. He doesn't know much about skin disease. I went to his office for skin trouble treatment , referred by my family doctor. He gave me some ointment to treat one dark spot near my hip in June. It doesn't work. In July, eczema flared up all over my legs. He wanted to quit and sent me to another doctor in his office. My family doctor has referred me to another doctor downtown specialized in skin disease on account of Dr. Rao incompetency and rude. However, his office is extremely commercialized. It appears the advertisement will make a huge profit to fill his money chest.

I went to see Dr. Rao last year before my wedding to get my skin wedding ready. I had teenage onset acne which had never really gone away despite now being in my 30's. Dr. Rao helped fix that with some prescription medications. Once my skin had healed from that I underwent a series of laser treatments to first get rid of the redness in my skin and then to resurface and smooth it out. It made my skin absolutely glow! I can't thank Dr. Rao and his staff enough for helping making my skin wonderful. Dr. Rao was always very pleasant, as were his staff. I would recommend him to anyone 100%.

Dr. Rao and his team were over-accomodating for me, having experienced a complication from another centre. It was a cosmetic laser treatment that caused a burn. They were compassionate, quick to get me in, knowledgable and useful. I know they prevented a major scar and I can't thank them enough. I am a also a healthcare professional, and this is the only dermatology centre that I would go to in Alberta.
