  • *Dr. Santos seems to be a very good dr., however like I've said in these questions she seems to be in a hurry all the time! I always feel like she is rushing me when I stop her to ask questions1
    Exceptionally good and respectful.
    I want to express my appreciation for the care and attention I received, as a new patient, at *Dr. Santos' office. Most importantly, *Dr. Santos paid full attention to my questions and concerns regarding my health issues.
    Dr. Santos is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. She runs a great office.

    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.
