  • I wish the provider would explain the pelvic surgery procedure more clearly and just a bit slower, without me feeling that I have to think of what to ask. I felt like she has explained it to so many women by now. I wrote notes as quickly as I could
    I am very happy that this specialty is offered. I feel the Provider will help me even further with follow up testing and treatment.
    Dr. Melanie Santos has excellent bedside manner. She is very attentive, a good listener, she speaks and explains things clearly, she was unrushed and treated me with dignity. Dr. Santos was polite, friendly, kind, understanding, very professional, very orderly. I was so impressed with her and the way she interacts with her patients. She is a role model for clinicians. The LVN was lovely, efficient, attentive and personable. The lady at the front window was very polite, had a friendly smile and engaged me in conversation, even asked how my drive was down the hill. Clear instructions were given so I didn't have to wonder what would happen next.
    Pre-opt surgery appointments and information were great. Day of surgery was also great.
    I feel comfortable each time I see my doctor and I am satisfied with the medical service I am provided.

    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.
