Specialties

Dr. Anita K Rao has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Don't go in 'just looking for script'

Dr Anita Rao and staff are professionals. From calling and making the appointment with Belinda to arriving and leaving- it is a very positive experience for someone who is not 'hunting for a fix' but wanting options and answers to new and actual pain as I age. The last thing I need or want is dependence on a drug and they are helping me find my way. I am grateful to Suzanne, the NP who, like Dr Rao has a great bedside manner and will talk and listen. They seem to have compassion in all the right areas. I highly recommend this practice.
