Many good surgeons can sometimes lack communication skills. But Mr Rao stands out as.a great surgeon who communicates really well. He is very reponsive to any queries you may have and encourages you to deal directly with him.

I am so pleased that I chose to go on this journey with Mr Rao. He was incredibly friendly and informative from out first appointment. I had some non-surgical complications post-op and Mr Rao was constantly monitoring me and making decisions to treat me.
