Patients Seen: Adults

I col­lab­o­rate with my patients through hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion about their health and focus on pre­ven­tion so that chron­ic con­di­tions can be avoid­ed when pos­si­ble. When a patient does have a chron­ic med­ical con­di­tion, I empha­size lifestyle mod­i­fi­ca­tions such as diet changes, exer­cise and stress relief in con­junc­tion with the appro­pri­ate med­ica­tions to work towards bet­ter health.

"I was in agony and crying. Dr. Rao took me and had stat tests run and got to the bottom of what was going on with me. She followed through with me from start to finish and even when I ended up having surgery, she called to check on me and followed up by phone. I have never had a more caring doctor, ever. Dr. Rao cared, she followed up and has managed my difficult medical history and worked with my specialist to ensure I am getting the best care. This is one amazing doctor. I truly am blessed to have her!"

"Dr. Rao was excellent. She was very informative in regards to my healthcare and formatting a plan on action for my future care. She took time to discuss all my questions and had very appropriate answers. I was very impressed with the thoroughness in which she performed the act of cleaning my ears. As a former Prosecutor of the IDFPR I am knowledgeable about patient care provided by physicians. She deserves a lot of credit for the way she practices medicine. In my opinion Dr. Rao is the best PCP I have had in my lifetime. She is also the best physician I have had at DuPage Medical. I am very pleased she is my new PCP and feel comfortable in her providing my healthcare into the future."
