Visited For Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment
I have been suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis for the last forty years and have consulted six rheumatologists so far (two specialists in Kolkata, one in Vellore, and three in Bengaluru). After taki I have been suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis for the last forty years and have consulted six rheumatologists so far (two specialists in Kolkata, one in Vellore, and three in Bengaluru). After taking into consideration domain knowledge (as far as an informed lay person can understand), sincerity and concern for the patient, application of mind, and transparency, I would say without a shred of doubt that Dr. Vijay K R Rao is by far the finest rheumatologists I have consulted so far. He has handled my problems in a thoroughly professional manner, but his underlying human concern has been palpably clear to me all the time. He has also explained the possible negative effects of the treatment adequately.

I firmly believe my long-standing problems will be solved through the treatment plan suggested by Dr Vijay. And even if there was any negative side-effect, I would be able to deal with it with the doctor's assistance.

I simply cannot thank Dr. Vijay KR Rao enough. My best wishes to you Doctor.

Visited For Arthritis
I was anxious or desparate to know what is wrong with my blood and mri reports and what i am being treated for. I repeated asked the doc for the details on the medicine suggested to me but the doc did I was anxious or desparate to know what is wrong with my blood and mri reports and what i am being treated for. I repeated asked the doc for the details on the medicine suggested to me but the doc didnt bother to explain. Doc never even cared to have a look at my xray or mri films or even touch my body to analyse the pain area. For me it was like consulting an online programmed doc. Definitely doc cant explain all the medical terms to the patient but i would have apprecaited if an attempt was made. more..

Visited For Articular Pain Treatment
He is a thorough professional and a very patient listener. My mother-in-law had been suffering from arthritis since the last two years. We visited several doctors but no avail. Finally we saw positive He is a thorough professional and a very patient listener. My mother-in-law had been suffering from arthritis since the last two years. We visited several doctors but no avail. Finally we saw positive reviews about Dr. Rao in Practo and I must say we are quite happy with the treatment. We visited him in March 2017 and within a month she showed notable improvement. He also explained what precautionary measures she should take and continue the medicines even for at least two years to avoid relapse.
Thank you , Doctor :)
