Dr. Rao

Founder / Chief Medical Director

Dr. Rao is a Houston native that graduated with highest honors from Rice University. He attended Baylor College of Medicine in Houston for his medical school training as well as for his residency training in diagnostic radiology. Dr. Rao was selected as Chief Resident during his tenure. Following his residency, he completed a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

For nearly 20 years, Dr. Rao has been in private practice in the Houston area as a diagnostic and interventional radiologist. He was recently named as one of the top radiologists by other Houston physicians. Dr. Rao has served as director of Radiology at many hospitals and imaging centers throughout the Houston area. He is a board certified radiologist with the American Board of Radiology and member of the Harris County Medical Society, Texas Medical Association, and American College of Phlebology. His expertise in ultrasound and ultrasound guided procedures makes him the ideal physician in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is extremely common and unfortunately, extremely under diagnosed says Dr. Rao. With the advances in technology, we should not allow anyone to suffering with CVI to go undiagnosed. Minimally invasive treatments are available today that will prevent the many serious and potentially life-threatening consequences of not diagnosing and treating venous insufficiency. As an Interventional Radiologist with our extensive training in ultrasound and all imaging modalities, we are the best suited to evaluate, diagnose and treat venous disease.
