    Mr Rao saw me at short notice via a Zoom meeting. He was very professional and understanding of my needs. X-rays we’re arranged and a follow up consultation with Mr Rao took place, and an operation was arranged. I had excellent care throughout and I was very happy with my results. I can highly recommend Mr Rao.
