Dr. Santiago is a positive man with an upbeat spirit and respectful of the dignity of his patients. At my age, I see other doctors once or twice a month. Occasionally, when consulting with these other physicians, it is necessary to refer to my back pain and my care under Dr. Santiago. When I do, They always reaffirm Dr. Santiago's medical judgments and recommendations.

Dr. Santiago is kind, patient, and listens. He remembers my health concerns from appointment to appointment and even some personal information. I trust his medical knowledge and skills. He sees so many patients that it seems he is overworked. This surely is a sign of his excellence in medicine.

Dr. Santiago is beyond exceptional. I had my procedure two weeks ago, and it went wonderful. The day after, I had hardly any pain.He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. I could not have asked for a better doctor.
Manteno, IL |
I have appreciated Dr. Santiago over the five years I have consulted with him for chronic backpain. Knowledgeable and helpful. Good doctor whom I trust. I do wish, however, that he could spend more time with each patient. However, I suspect this is a decision from the clinic management and not his own preference.

Dr. Santiago is very thorough and very professional. He is great with following up and is very compassionate. His staff is very friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for over 2 years and am very pleased with his care.

in Manteno, IL |
Dr Santiago in our opinion is the best doctor we have ever known. Several times my husband's back has gone into severe pain right before vacation. Dr. Santiago did injections the last few days before we were to leave. We were able to go on our vacations pain free. Dr. Santiago is more than a doctor he treats you like a friend. He is always happy,kind,and remembers past conversations you had with him He really cares for his patients. We are lucky to have him for a doctor,and Mary 4 for his nurse.
