I just saw Dr. Rao today in Fort McMurray. It was a great visit and he was very kind, patient and helpful. He took the time to come all the way from Edmonton to see me and other patients, because we haven't had a dermatologist up here in over a year (the last one was Dr. Rogers). He definitely didn't have to come. I wish he was always here, and I know this is how others feel too. Great doctor!!!

There was a long wait to see Dr. Rao with almost no time that I directly spent with him. I was passed on to an product consultant and was actually told to buy products instead of using prescriptions for my problem.

I went to Dr. Rao in September because of my face acne. Dr. Rao maybe spent three minutes with me; did not ask me about my diet, exercise, lifestyle, etc., just prescribed me a $200 dollar face cream that he assured me would work, and I booked a follow-up appointment. I recently drove over four hours for my appointment (I do not live in Edmonton) only to find out that it was cancelled. I received no phone call, voice mail, or email letting me know of the cancellation. This was extremely disappointing considering how long you have to wait for an appointment and that I had driven so far. To top it all off, the face cream prescribed is not even working. I had a terrible experience with Dr. Rao's practice and I would not recommend them.

Dear M. H., We are extremely sorry and would like to apologize for your recent experience with us. It is very unfortunate and we understand your frustration. We greatly appreciate your feedback. We hope that there is something that we can do for you at this moment. We also would like to reassure you that this was not intentional and must be related to some technical problems on both ends. In our system, there are 2 emails recorded on your file that were sent to you in regards to this cancellation. However, we are unaware of the reasons these emails did not reach you. Your email address is correct. Maybe we should check you 'junk mail' as It is possible for these emails to be filtered under junk. We would be happy to schedule you in for an appointment with Dr Rao at any time for your convenience. We appreciate your time and the fact that you are our out of town patient and have to take a long trip to visit us. We will do our best to accommodate you in our clinic when even it works for you. Please let us know. We are extremely sorry and hope we can make you feel better about your experience with us. Thank you and Kind regards, Rao Dermatology Team.

Very prompt, very caring. For an individual who wanted the laser procedure, but was very scared, the staff made me feel very comfortable.

He is one of the best dermatologist I've seen by far. I was truly impressed with his bed side manners and knowledge. His clinic is gorgeous and his staff are so wonderful and nice. The young gentleman at the front was a tremendous help. I would highly recommend Dr.Rao.

I was referred for a very debilitating and chronic autoimmune vasculitis that has plagued my health, mental well being and frankly my ability to enjoy ly life. I was an active post 65 year old, sadly the last few years have not been kind to me. I am not one to use the internet of social webbing pages but I feel compelled to say something about this man I saw, Dr. Rao. He is a darling, a gentleman and a fine example of what good old fashioned medicine ought to be about. Very professional, smartly dressed, BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN clinic, comfortable patient rooms (like a 5 star hotel), but most of all his KNOWLEDGE. What he diagnosed me with and the treatment plan he made is spot on. He did what 5 other doctors I was referred to couldn't do. I shall always respect all doctors as thats what my mother taught me, but this one should be blessed. My vasculitis feels less painful and I am returning to walking. May the lord bless you and your family Dr Rao. Linda PS: If only you can refer me to a network of specialists like you for my heart, kidneys and back..... Ill talk to you soon. Bye bye

I had the best experience at this clinic!! Clean office, very punctual, the nurses were very nice, and Dr Rao was extremely helpful and positive. I've already recommended him to 3 of my friends since my visit just about a week ago. I'll most certainly be returning and I can't wait to see how much I'll benefit from Rao's help!
