What our patients have to say about us:

Good morning Dr. Rao, Thank you. After going to four pain management clinic's , two orthopedic doctors and spending over $1579.00 with no relief. After one visit with you I am finally getting some relief. I still hurts but it's does't seem to be getting worse, as it has been for almost a year. I don't feel like giving up and this life I have might actually be worth fighting for, as I am not consumed every minute of everyday fighting pain.
Mark G., Mt Airy, MD
I've seen many doctors over the years, but the PASS team fixed my problem and I'm pain free for the first time in over 5 years.
Howard K., Rockville, MD
My back pain was completely gone within 3 weeks of visiting the Pain and Spine Specialists office in Maryland. They were very professional and took care of me from start to end.
Dennis C., Gaithersburg, MD
Thanks Dr. Rao, you continue to be the greatest Doctor I have with all the right answers and the Lyrica is working.
