Custom label for a slider in Manipulate

I have a simple Manipulate,

Manipulate[
 Plot[Sqrt[2]/(RTT*Sqrt[p]), {p, .001, .1},
  PlotRange -> {{0, .1}, {0, 150}}],
 {{RTT, .1, "round trip time"}, .03, .25, Appearance -> "Labeled"}
 ]

But I want the slider that controls the RTT variable to have a
prettier appearance. I would like it to display the value to the right
of the control, but instead of a plain number I want it to show
  ToString[Round[1000 RTT]] <> "ms"

How can I achieve this?

Thanks,
Damon.
