I was a patient of Dr. Santoro's 15+ years ago. I received remarkable care at that time, and what is really amazing is that some of the words of wisdom that she gave me then, which were not generally accepted information, have become practices to follow today. Some examples are do not microwave food in plastic, eat food as close to the source and cut out preservatives, and avoid sugar - cancer feeds on it. I am very grateful to have been in her care.

After an abnormal sonogram showed a mass in my left breast I saw Dr. Santoro. While looking at my chart, she appeared unprepared. Reading my chart she very matter of factly told me that reviewing my tests she agreed the mass was very likely cancer and she recommended a mastectomy and followed that news suggesting I have both my breast’s removed just to be on the safe side. I got a second opinion, Over six years later, thank God, I do not have breast cancer and have both my breasts.

She is the most wonderful person. She gave me hope and I am still here. 20 years later, I still think she is the absolute God loving doctor. God bless her always. I no longer live in NJ, but I would recommend her to everyone.
