She is the doctor you need

Dr. Rao and the amazing staff of Norris Cotton cancer center cured my ovarian cancer back in 2005-2006 Because of this amazing woman I was allowed to carry on with my life and have an amazing marriage and two beautiful boys. I’m 31 now still cancer free and so grateful God placed Dr. Rao in my life. She cares. She is kind and so down to earth. If you are thinking about recruiting this dr it will be the best choice you make. She set her own personal life aside to make sure I was healing okay. She is everything any dr could ever aspire to be. If you ever read this Dr. Rao.... Thankyou! Because you followed your dreams to be a doctor you helped me live to see so many years I wasn’t really expecting to see! Heidi Morris

First Six Month Check Up

I've been anxious for weeks prior to upcoming blood work, bone density and cat scan procedures. Had them yesterday and not scheduled to meet with Dr. Rao until next week, but low and behold !! I get a call from her office early the following day of my procedures to give me the best news I could have gotten !! Cat Scan showed no signs of cancer!! What a relief !! Dr. Rao and her office personnel are sooo kind and caring. I can't say enough about this practice !! I/ We (my family) LOVE THEM ALL !! :) God Bless you and keep up the GREAT work !! Feeling so Blessed right now !! Thank YOU!

GOD BLESS DR. G. RAO

THANK GOD, WE FOUND THIS AMAZING, OUTSTANDING DR. JUST WHEN I WAS FALLING APART, AND MY FAMILY AS WELL. SHE IS A BLESSING IN HER APPROACH, MANNER AND CARING ATTITUDE. AT A CATASTROPHIC TIME, WHEN CANCER DIAGNOSIS IS DEVASTATING, FRIGHTENING, AND LONELY WE HAD ONE MIRACLE COME INTO OUR LIFE. DR. G. RAO. CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT HER PRESENCE, REASSURRANCE, AND EXTREME KINDNESS AND PATIENCE. IF THERE WERE A 'NOBEL PRIZE.' FOR A SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY HUMAN BEING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, SHE IS DESERVING OF IT/ FEEL BLESSED TO BE UNDER HER 'WING'.
