Misdiagnosed condition which caused me great pain
in Blue Springs, MO |
Considering my case is workman's comp & started off as a nightmare back in mid September, I was referred to Dr. Santos in late October and he has been a godsend ever since. He has listened, explained and actually shown me the issues with my back. His office is a well oiled machine that runs so smooth and actually sticks to your appointment time consistently. I can't say enough about the staff, everyone I have encountered whether it is an office visit or procedure are so pleasant.
Very professional and reassuring made my cortisone shot painless and quick.shook my hand when he was done good guy

I had an appointment with Dr. Santos' Nurse Practitioner for pain. An MRI was ordered, even the person doing the MRI said it looked like there were things going on. When I went back to get the MRI results I was told that they didn't find anything. After 11 months of continual problems I went to another Dr. and was shocked when he read the report and I had 6 or 7 problems. All of which have gotten much worse during the 11 months. I am absolutely FURIOUS. DO NOT GO TO THIS PRACTICE.

One of the worst physicians I have ever encountered. His P.A. is horrendous as is the rest of his practice. Would not trust Dr. Santos with ANY one I know.
