I waited for 8 months for my appointment. I have a strong pain, so a week and 1/2 ago, I went to the Dr's office to confirm my appointment. Nobody said a word, everything was ok. Then, just 2 days before my appointment I was informed that it was rescheduled, that I won't see dr Santandreu. Instead, my appointment was changed -WITHOUT MY CONSENT- to see 'DOCTOR' BRIDGETTE PAYNE. I did my research and I found out that Bridgette Payne is a PA and NOT A DOCTOR. A PA can receive patients ONLY under a doctor supervision. However, she is receiving patients when Dr Santandreu is not in the office. It is so sad and unprofessional to be treated in this way. I'm a patient who is in pain, who had surgery with this doctor, and who always pays 'doctor' appointments and not PA ' appointments'. There is a point when you have to remember your Hippocratic oath; '...I'll enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption...'

The worst customer service ever!! Today, I called Dr. Santandreu’s office because I heard he is a good doctor and I really wanted to schedule an appointment with him. However, I didn’t get to make an appointment with him because he has a terrible staff. I called his office 4 times and none of the people who pick up the phone could tell me if the doctor accept my insurance and his available hours to make an appointment. The last person I talked to hanged up on me.

He's an fantastic doctor knowledgeable fantastic rapore. Puts you at ease. However his staff is deplorable they over book don't answer phones have bad attitudes. If you do manage to get an appointment bring lunch, dinner and a snack! You will be there far longer than you think. Doc Orlando if you ever read this you need to take control over your staff!

His office is ran by clowns that over book 50 ppl in one hour. You're there for 5-6 hours on the waiting room. The latest I've left his office was 2am. They have no consideration for ppl time. The worst place to go.

I meet Dr. Santandreu in Jan, 2011 he delivered my first child at Flushing Medical Center. I adore Dr. Santandreu he is such a great Dr. and makes you feel like you are his family. I am expecting my second child and even thu the wait is terrible, I decided to go back to him with my second pregnancy. I have waited 3 hrs to see him. Just make sure you are not in a rush and have ate something before you go to see him.

He is excellent. It was my first visit and I am 33 weeks pregnant. He is very professional, checked everything, controlled all my previous medical records. His attitude was perfect as well. I feel so relaxed and satisfied with the answer he gave to all my questions. I appriciate his patience altough it was a bad and busy day for him...

I love Dr. Santandreu, but his office staff's scheduling ability is totally inept. So far, all of our appointments have been delayed and one had to be rescheduled, so they gave us a date more than two weeks later, even though we are waiting to hear test results.
