About Dr. Rao

I specialize in Brain and Spine Care. I became a healthcare provider because I knew I always wanted to be a pediatrician. My patients can count on me to provide extraordinary care because I provide compassion, guidance, and education on treatment plans that are easy to understand and individualized for the patient. My patients and their family leave understanding their diagnosis and treatment for the future.

My little something extra

I’m a Pelicans basketball fan.
