For General Practitioners
Dr Rao is very grateful to all the GPs who refer to him and endeavours to work closely with GPs to maximise best patient outcomes.
Dr Rao is happy to see both private and public patients in his rooms. If you could please forward your referrals through to Dr Rao, he will triage the referral and also organise appropriate imaging for the patient prior to the consultation. This usually involves x-rays and MRI scans.
Furthermore, if you wish Dr Rao to come and visit your practice, please contact his rooms. He is more than happy to visit the entire practice or attend for a one on one visit with a GP who wishes to have further information on his practice.
