About Priyanka Rao, MD

I am a general pediatrician and love my job because I enjoy getting to know children and their families and establishing long-term relationships. It is a privilege to be part of a team that helps children learn how to be healthy as they grow. I am passionate about family-centered care, preventive medicine and advocacy for all children. Outside of work, you can find me spending time with my family traveling, cooking and enjoying the outdoors!
