I LOVE LOVE LOVE this office. I was helping my mom find a place for her arthritis pain, and I explained to them how bad it was. They were able to schedule me the same week! That's almost impossible at any doctor's office...and then add COVID..... I was thrilled. I took my mom, and everyone was absolutely so sweet and kind

Dr. Rao. I can't find the words to tell you how much he has meant to me. I followed him from an old practice to his very new high tech office. They offer so many different areas of assistance to those with issues from nutrition to spinal surgery...and much more. His office is professional.
- Mom To2
Dr. Roa is such an amazing doctor! During my first visit he never tried to rush through my appt., he genuinely listened to all my concerns and then took his time to explain to me in detail all his recommendations and how they would help me.
- Nikki Walker
In the 3 years as a patient of Dr. Rao, it is my opinion that he is a phenomenal and extraordinary doctor. He keeps up to date with the latest treatment options, will sacrifice time no matter how many are in the waiting room to listen and explain. Dr. Rao has treated multiple patients with rare illnesses, and shows more empathy than any Dr. I’ve met.
- Mom To2
I have now been with Dr. Rao for 13 years. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever been to! Dr. Rao makes you feel very comfortable at all times. I would not want to go to any other Doctor... I go to the Hagerstown location, everyone is very nice

- Cathern C.
Always friendly, courteous, and efficient service. From the ladies, who work the front desk, to the nurses and the doctors. I've always had a good experience with the Harrisonburg office in Virginia.
They scheduled my appointment very quickly so that I can get to help that I needed immediately instead of like most places having to wait two to three weeks to get in I called and was able to be seen the next day
- John H.

When To See A Comprehensive Pain Management Specialist
In some cases, the source of chronic pain may be easily identifiable. You might be able to trace it back to a specific event, such as a sports injury or an accident, or a diagnosed condition like arthritis or fibromyalgia, which includes pain as part of the symptoms.
However, not everyone can pinpoint a single cause for their chronic pain. It could be a combination of coexisting health conditions or a result of previous injuries or infections.
Chronic pain doesn't simply disappear after a few days of rest; it lingers for weeks, months, or even years. Typically, if your pain persists for more than three months, doctors consider it chronic.
To better understand and address your chronic pain, it's essential to have an in-depth discussion about your medical history with pain management specialist. This conversation will help them determine the underlying causes and develop a tailored treatment plan for your pain relief journey.
Here are some chronic pain symptoms we look out for:
- Burning Pain
- Shooting Pain
- Throbbing/Dull Aches
It is vital for anyone experiencing prolonged pain to reach out to a medical professional. Finding a comprehensive pain program can establish the patient on the path to pain relief. Chronic pain can be a complex and multifaceted problem for a patient and may require a pain specialist to manage. Here are a few testimonials from satisfied patients:
"Before coming to this practice, I was struggling with debilitating lower back pain that made it nearly impossible for me to work or enjoy time with my family. After receiving injection therapy treatment, my pain has significantly decreased, and I can now lead a more active and fulfilling life. I'm so grateful for the care and support I received from the entire team."
"I had been dealing with chronic neck pain for years and tried various treatments unsuccessfully. The specialists at PASS developed a comprehensive plan that addressed my physical pain and the emotional stress it caused. The Stellate ganglion injection treatment was truly life-changing, and I can't thank them enough."
Taking The Next Step
Managing chronic pain can feel like a full-time job, and this chronic condition can have drastic physical and emotional ramifications. Living with chronic pain can heighten depression symptoms, increasing the patient's pain, and this burden can create a cycle of physical and emotional pain.
