Specialties

Dr. Ravindra Rao has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Registered Nurse

Dr. Rao is absolutely the most caring physician my son has every seen. I continue to see him even though it is difficult to get an appointment sometime because he is so popular and is the best; and the waiting is a little longer because he is the greatest MD. He has seen my son since birth and he is now 12 Years old.

Dr Rao is wonderful. He is an excellent MD and gives much to those he serves. He was my four children's pediatrician and the pediatrician for 54 children with intellectual disabilities where I was employed. He is kind and compassionate, caring and informed. He is never too busy too take time to explain what he is seeing, what he plans of what your options are. On s scale of 1-5 he is a 10.

He was my pediatrician..and now he's my daughter's!

I have been a patient of Dr. Rao since birth until I was a pre-teen. I have very fond memories of him as a caring doctor. Now that I am a parent, my daughter sees him. He answers all questions patiently and my husband and I never feel rushed. Dr. Rao has a high reputation at LLUMC and is a spina bifida specialist. I am glad that I chose Dr. Rao for my daughter.
