"Dr. Rao provided excellent care and compassion through out the many years I lived in southeast Huntsville. I will always be grateful for his caring treatment at my moment of complete despair when my younger brother’s death along with my Mom’s dementia plunged me into depression. He has the wisdom also to retain a diverse and caring staff who are always kind and caring."

"Beware! Beware! Beware! FOR NEARLY TEN YEARS, Dr. G.S. Rao was my "trusted" doctor, but he dropped me like a hot potato after informing him that I had received conflicting reports about my bloodwork results. Here are the facts. Last fall Dr. Rao sent me to Dr. Katragadda to get an iron infusion for Anemia. After two treatments and a few pessimistic comments, I doubted the diagnosis for continuous treatment. So this spring, I had bloodwork done (days apart) by both doctors. One reported that my iron level was good/normal, and the other said I needed an immediate iron infusion. Immediately after inquiring about the discrepancy, I received two letters from Dr. Rao dropping me as a patient. Undoubtedly, he has the right to drop me at any time, just as I have the right to drop him, but WHY did I receive two conflicting reports about my bloodwork? WHY did Dr. Rao refuse to speak with me about this when we've spoken many times? "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
