Specialties

Dr. Deepak K Rao has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Avoid this Doctor at all costs!

He doesn't listen to you. He avoids eye contact. He never returns your calls. He schedules his own appointments but only when he feels like it. He won't refill prescriptions without seeing you, then can't see you for months. I hate to think of all the patients he has seen that are still suffering. He is clearly in it just for the money. Avoid this doctor. He should be banned from seeing patients.

Just trying to sell drugs to you

This guy is an idiot. My father is with him so I assumed he might be good, and I wouldn't have to explain as much so it'd be easier for me. Not only did he misdiagnose me, he made me 3 times worse than I already was with the medications he was giving me. He didn't care at all, about anything I said. Just told me to exercise more and "heres some more medications I want you to try"
