Dr Rao is happy to see you if your condition is urgent.
If you believe that is the case please make sure your referral from your GP is forwarded to Dr Rao. His staff will alert him that this is an urgent appointment and he will review the referral within 24 hours.
Dr Rao will then organise to see you ASAP which would usually involve an appointment later in the day at the rooms at one of his locations. Dr Rao has established The Private Foot and Ankle Fracture Clinic which will be run on Thursdays at his rooms.
His staff will help to direct you after receiving the appropriate information from your GP or treating allied health specialist.
