    How was your appointment with Dr. Rao?

    Oct 23, 2020
    I went to Dr. Rao after waiting months to get approved to be scheduled. It took months to get my paperwork submitted and approved. I live 8 hours away from Georgia, so my mom and I drove and stayed for a week for many, many tests to be run. I have had SIBO (and other issues) for 3 years. Dr. Rao is kind, patient, and brilliant at what he does. If you have motility issues, he is the best. My issue is with the follow-up. They are great when you are there, but then you feel like you are forgotten. I will continue to need to communicate with them as I have a diagnosis but will need to try differnt meds to get better. Overall, I am so happy I found him, but they need much better follow-up and communication. The staff is wonderful as well. Medical testing is expensive-that is what insurance is for. Want a proper diagnosis? you must pay for it.
