Dr. Santiago is excellent surgeon within his profession. He removed rectal cancer from me and six months later reversed my ilioscopy which I found is not the normal procedure among other surgeons. His office staff is excellent and have always followed up on any concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Santiago and would return in a heart beat if warranted.

I only seen him 1 time after the surgery for less than 3 minutes. He never returns calls, always lets his nurse deal with calls or PA , doesn't have bed side manners either. Ended up in ER several times after the surgery and never even came ta care and supposedly I'm his patient. Brushing off my complaint to a point finally where my problem turned into a bigger medical problem which needed another surgery that could've been avoid if was taking care of before. Horrible manners horrible service !
