About Dr. Sirish Rao, M.D.

Why Gastroenterology?

I chose to specialize in gastroenterology because of my fascination with the intricate workings of the digestive system and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on patients' lives. The field offers a unique blend of procedural and clinical medicine, allowing me to perform various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as endoscopies and colonoscopies, while also developing a deep understanding of complex gastrointestinal disorders. By practicing gastroenterology, I can actively contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to gastrointestinal cancers, often preventing the progression of diseases through early intervention. This dynamic and evolving specialty enables me to merge my passion for hands-on procedures with a compassionate approach to patient care, ultimately enhancing their overall well-being and quality of life.

What Can Patients Expect?

Patients can expect an exceptional standard of care characterized by professionalism, compassion, and a patient-centered approach. I firmly believe in the power of collaboration, treating each patient as an integral part of their own care team. By fostering open communication and involving patients in their treatment decisions, I strive to create a harmonious partnership that promotes the best possible outcomes and a sense of empowerment on every step of their healthcare journey.

Interests outside of Patient care?

First time meeting my new Dr. He was personable, attentive and knew about procedures I had had in the past. Gave me confidence that he was interested in knowing my issues. Talked about having one more procedure done to compare with other tests. To be discussed at next appt. I believe he will be a good Dr. for me.
