What People Say About Dr. Michael Santoro, MD

Easy to schedule, made appointment 3rd week of November. Did not see Dr Santoro, instead his PA did the consult of which she was very professional. Scheduled Colposcopy early January. Unfortunately, had unscheduled heart procedure that took priority. Santoro was proactive in a reschedule date, but I wanted to see how I would recover. I called mid January to reschedule, no call back. I called a week later, still no call back. Is he good, who knows. I found another Doctor.

Dr Santoro recommended and performed an exploratory procedure which caused me to be rushed to the ER days later, near death. The procedure was then considered to be both uneccessary and unprofessionally performed. Please get another opinion when considering this doctor.
