  • Seemed to understand and recommend medication I needed to address my problem.
    When Dr. Santos saw how stressed I was she proved me with answers I needed and gave me a hug when I started to cry. She's a great surgeon and personable doctor. Glad to have her as my doctor.
    I'm very happy with my service
    All good
    All my appointments have been good with Dr. Santos!

    Biography

    Despite all the recent advances in care, there are still many women who believe health issues such as incontinence or pelvic pain are something they just have to live with. Some women mistakenly believe nothing can be done about their symptoms, or that treatment always requires surgery. Others are reluctant to talk to a doctor because of embarrassment or a belief that "it's just part of aging."

    The best part of my job is helping women understand all of the treatment options available – from new medications to simple outpatient procedures that take a matter of minutes to perform. There are so many more successful options then even 10 years ago – and every day, I have the chance to restore a woman's quality of life, often after years of symptoms and inconvenience.
