Never got to see Dr De Santis but if he practices medicine the way he runs his office, I suppose is a good thing. I waited for an appointment for months and as it was coming up I was called that it would be in Plantation because he had started seeing patients in an office there and he would be there the day of my appointment. As I was not willing to travel to Plantation, they gave me a new appointment 4 months later. Received multiple messages the day prior to the appt, but was not able to get an answer to my calls until late in the afternoon when someone answered and told me my appointment was in Plantation. She tried unsuccessfully to reach someone in the office to clarify the situation, but they wouldn’t answer her call either. She took my information and said I would be called. This has been a very negative, frustrating experience. Maybe God’s sign to find another doctor.

I finally found my Endocrinologist, Dr. De Santis. He is very understanding, professional and patient: he took the time to listen to me with a positive attitude and gave me the confidence that I was speaking to the right doctor. Everyone in the office is very attentive- especially Aimee, who is very kind.

My mom has a brain tumor and has seen several different specialists and we have loved Dr. De Santis. He has taken the time to explain her conditions and has been thorough in testing and treatment and has been patient answering all our questions. Our only concern has been trying to get through to his office when we have questions as the Baptist "email" system is not reliable or personal and we wish we could reach a person/ nurse when we call. But we love Dr. De Santis and his staff and are very grateful to them all for accepting my mom as a patient!

If you are a Testosterone patient do not waist your time going there, he will make you stay off prescription for two months to see if your body produces T, even if your labs results shows low T he will not prescribe you Testosterone, he will give you Clomid and if your insurance does not covers it you will end up seeking another endocrinologist... three months lost doing this experiment...

Severe lack of capacity for critical interpretation and situational delineation from the "script". If the Endocrinology Association of XX told him the recommended guidelines were to jump into a meat grinder, that would be his prescription. I went in for hormonal corrections, showing multiple symptoms, both inward (subjective) and outwardly expressed (observable). He tried to convince me I was depressed and to see a psychologist. A real quack job.

I have been a patient of Dr. De Santis for several years before his move to Baptist. I have followed him there after trying to adjust to the care in his previous office. His level of care and my trust on his care are way above what I have experience in the past.

It took me a while to track Dr. De Santis down, since he has left Cleveland Clinic and works for a division of Baptist, but once you've seen him, no other endocrinologist will do. He's smart, humble and really easy to work with. I would call him a "doctor's doctor." In any case, doctors like him are quite rare. If you need a great endocrinologist, he's your guy. No doubt.

Dr. De Santis and his staff were very professional and supportive. His examination was very thorough and determined I needed surgery. Both he and his staff were available for me whenever I had any questions or concerns, or made themselves available. He and his staff went beyond the scope of making me feel comfortable and confident that a solution to my discomfort was going to be possible.
