Dr. J Prabhakar Rao is a senior level pediatrician, with over 22 years of experience in examination and treatment of patients from newborns to teenagers.He has extensive experience in treating hospitalized children in intensive care settings.
I have visited many times for my kids and my niece stomach ache (mostly), nutritional problems. Dr Prabhakar never advised unnecessary checkups, unnecessary and irrelevant medicines / supplements. He always prescribed and advised after carefully listening to us and examining kids paitently. This is where his experience and empathy impressed us. I recommend him to all my friends and whoever comes to me with their kids health problems. My story is simple and expectations are simple. A famous saying is that ‘A doctor is God’s another form on the earth’. I can safely say that doctors like Prabhakar Rao living that form. God bless him.
*** ********* **** ** *** ** *** **** ************* * **** **** ***** ** ******** *** Unfortunetly with alot of pediatricians I have come accross, my children just seemed like another job, but Dr. Rao, actually cares about the kids he treats. He is very on top of things! My daughter never affraid to go to the doctor, she's comfortable with him, and for a child that is important! So Thank you Dr. Rao, You are very awsome Doctor and most importantly a wonderful person, Lucky to have found you!
My family had a long association with Dr Prabhakar Rao, he has treated me since I was a child starting right from the tender age of a year to 15 years of age, my little brother's also been excellently examined by him with the medications always proving to be the best and prescriptions being rid of the unwanted supplements............. Highly advisable for all the kids out there!!!!
He is very kind hearted doctor. I have visited him during lockdown period although his clinic was closed that day but still he gave us time to see my son.
