The parking fee machine is a nightmare for old people. Looks like an ATM slot. But putting your card in and waiting for it to be charged is not how it works. A quick in and out? Not clear. You have to press the button and then get instructions. Then you are surprised by license recognition software that seems to know who you are. And opens the exit gate with no further who ha. An annoying experience for any geezer. But rings the cash register for PIH, while nickle and diming those you "serve."

Yes, Dr. Rao is an excellent communicator, an excellent provider, and is very efficient in doing what he does best and that is to be a provider.

No one told me to have any records that might help along with me on my visit. My General Practictioner didn't supply any info. either for this first visit to copy and send along with me.

The only downfall is the difficulty getting appointments. I very much appreciate Dr. Rao's urgency to get me in to see him so soon after my release from hospital. I appreciated the amount of time he spent with me and answered every question clearly.

I had explained my reason for my visit regarding my breathing and heart and it seemed like it was disregarded then I was told to take a sleep test because the Dr. Suspected, "sleep apnea"..I don't ever recall having this issue other than 15years ago when I had severe h-pilory for 14days before it was diagnosed then was given antibiotics. What didn't happen was to listen completely. My reason for lack of sleeping is I have a lower back injury that is painful and it is hard to sleep in certain positions also I have acute aspergillus and that is the reason why in taking my steroid inhaler. But at least he did assign me to see a heart specialist which was positive and I'm thankful for that and the reason for my visit. I don't mind being told I'm over weight but that's is to be expected when you're unable to run bend or do rigorous exercise along with my other health issues.
