Dr. Ramakrishna P Rao has the following 4 specialties
- Child & Adolescent 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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He was a good doctor and did what he needed to do. Helped me get situated with medicine and was very helpful in explaining everything. overall good job
I hardly review a product or service but had to make sure I get this out so others don't make the same mistake--Do Not go see Dr. Rao for the following reasons: 1) Poorly staffed...assistant gets appointments wrong and not kind, courteous. I don't fault her though...I fault the doctor's lack of training her properly. 2) Doctor is arrogant, pretentious, feels like he has you figured out in 5 minutes. Has no personal connection with patients--he looked at computer screen the whole time and made little eye contact. 3) does not listen to patient..felt compelled to air his superiority before really engaging in the patient. 4) Office is poor--has unhung picture frames all over floor and walls are paper thin. Easy for folks next door to listen to everything being said. He is by far the worst doctor in any profession I have ever met. Do not be impressed with his website or what his brand of psychology is. You are better off seeing anyone but Dr. Rao. I would keep rate zero stars if this website allowed for it.
The doctor put my child on medicine which was fine but, they made it very difficult to get refills or appointments to be seen to see if the medicine needed to be adjusted or reviewed. The receptionist was rude and very uncaring. Ashley could care less if she helped patients communicate with the doctor.
