I met Dr. Santos for the first time when I was in the hospital, he was very comforting and informative. I appreciated his judgement in taking steps towards giving time for my other health issues to improve. By doing that my kidneys have slightly improved and I don't require dialysis, at this time. I may need it in the future but I have full confidence Dr. Santos will know when that time comes. Every time we meet he greets me with a smile that makes me feel he truly appreciates his patients.

My 28 year old daughter with end stage renal failure was followed by Dr. Santos for her final year. It didn't matter how busy he was, he always made himself available for her. He was respectful, informative and very kind. This man gave her peace and hope in her final months. He will forever be endeared to myself and our family.
