My father-in-law was suffering from some liver disorder. He visited Dr. G V Rao and started his treatment. The doctor was very polite to him. He made us understand every detail in simple words. After 4 months of treatment, my father is doing great now.

My doctor suggested a liver transplant. So I consulted Dr. G V Rao for the surgery. I must say, he is an amazing doctor. He answered all my questions, provided support to my family and explained everything in detail. There was no complication after the surgery. Satisfied.

The doctor is very nice and understanding. The treatment was also effective, but the cost of treatment was very costly.
