"Dr. Rao is very personable, kind, compassionate and very straightforward."



"Dr Rao is a very good reconstructive surgeon. He was part of a team of surgeons who worked together to bring me back to good health. Dr Rao is a very personable young man with a wealth of experience. His office runs on time and his staff is very friendly. I would recommend him for any plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery"



"I was referred to Dr Camela Pokhrel with Dupuytren's contracture, a hand condition that had drawn my wedding ring finger onto the palm of my hand. I experienced the gradually worsening symptoms for seven years, and my left hand finally became disfuncional. I did quite a bit of research on the disease, and was aware that surgery to straighten my finger would be quite complicated.Dr. Pokhrel not only gave me back my hand function, but the process was much less painful and involved than I had anticipated. Her staff is terrific, and Dr Pokhrel has an extremely caring attitude and manner. My hand has healed much more rapidly than my research had predicted.I highly recommend Dr Pokhrel and her practice for any hand surgery a patient might need. Jane BauermannTucson"



"Dr. Pokhrel is an excellent and compassionate surgeon. I recommend her highly."
