Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Santos "Dr. Santos is deeply interested in each patient's personal story, in addition to the medical condition he is treating. He truly connects with a patient to see beyond the medical issue at hand. He mentions, "The patient's story puts into context my ultimate goal, which is to improve his or her quality of life. My goal with every patient is to get to the root of the problem and solve it as quickly as possible. The best scenario occurs when a patient can resume his or her lifestyle with minimal treatment.""
