What People Say About Dr. Paul Santiago, MD
Arrogant; seems to treat patients like he is doing them a favor by seeing them. Clearly needs some bedside patient classes? I have been treated with more respect at a McDonald's drive up window!

Dr Santiago is a fantastic Doctor. His staff are extremely helpful. I feel very lucky that through chance and circumstance he became my Neurologist. Easy to talk to, he dealt well with a very irritable and confused patient. A++++ service and patience. Thank yoy

Waited well over 2 hours for last appt. My husband continually felt like he was getting brushed off. Took us 6 months to get some real answers and at that point, we decided to get a second opinion.
