Specialties

Dr. Namrata Rao has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Dr. Rao is simply the best

If you take anything away from this review, let it be that Dr. Vandana Rao is the most dedicated, passionate, and genuine psychiatrist in the DFW area. My experience with Dr. Rao has been everything I could hope for in a psychiatrist, and her care has been nothing short of exceptional. Prior to finding Dr. Rao, I met with various psychiatrists in the region hoping to find someone who could meet my high expectations and have the flexibility to accommodate my demanding work schedule. Dr. Rao has proven to be the only one to fit the bill, and I consider myself a patient of hers for life. Dr. Rao gives her focused attention every time I walk into her office, and it’s refreshing to have a psychiatrist who cares about my development and progress as a person rather than treating me as a just another person who needs to be diagnosed/medicated. Dr. Rao is the only psychiatrist I’ve worked with who gives her patients an opinion, trusts their voice, and treats the relationship as a partnership. Admittedly, I am a high demand patient who can make scheduling difficult due to work commitments. Dr. Rao has not only worked with me to make scheduling an effortless process, but she has also been kind and understanding throughout, which is unique compared to my experiences with other, more rigid, psychiatrists. If you are reading this review and are considering Dr. Rao, I highly recommend meeting with her. I’ve been through enough psychiatrists to know how special a great psychiatrist can be, and words in a simple review cannot do her justice.

I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Rao. She is incredibly caring and very thorough. She has been very generous with her time, even calling us on nights and weekends at periods of concern with our daughter. Her manner is warm and accepting, with great communication.
