Houston, TX |
Very judgemental, not very understanding at all.
in Houston, Tx |
Dr. Santos is one of the best, period. I speak from years (over 40) experience with healthcare providers, having been diagnosed & treated for manic depression / bipolar II. Dr. Santos is kind, concise and has the ultimate skills / deductive reasoning to prescribe the perfect regimen. If he wasn't so kind & personable, he would be intimidating. He's THAT smart. I'm fortunate to have been referred to him, and by a surgeon no less.

Very knowledgable , friendly and professional , quickly grasped the problem and helped me.
Arrogant. Dishonest and dismissive about risks of medication. Unable to recognize side effects.

This doctor is just great! He really listens to what you have to say and gets right to the point. He evaluates what you need and moves on that.

Dr. Santos himself is a good doctor, but that doesnt overshadow his incredibly condescending staff & office's ridiculous policies. It takes DAYS & multiple attempts for anyone to call you back. They write out scripts for only a month at a time & then have the audacity to charge you for refills. They'll literally make any excuse they can to charge you. I don't understand why they are in mental health care, their arrogant and curt behavior makes it evident they don't care about people.
Best and most knowledgable psychiatrist I've had. He knows about all the different forms of therapy (medication, ECT, psychotherapy) and helps you make the most informed decision you feel is right for you. He listens and doesn't just throw medications at you in a five minute appointment.
