Dr. Santos is a terrific coach and partner in my life with type 1 diabetes. She is an exceptional and empathetic listener. She is very knowledgable, including recommending great resources for various problems and concerns that I have had about my diabetes and my diet. Her knowledge and skills are recognized nationally, as she speaks at many conferences. Dr. Santos has gained my trust completely. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

If you have hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's, please DO NOT waste your time with Santos. She does not have the competence to treat this complex condition. Hashimoto's, the leading cause of hypothyroidism in the US, is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks the thyroid with antibodies (revealed in blood work via the anti TPO antibody test). Please find an integrative or a functional doctor that shows compassion, listens to your symptoms, and examines the root cause. To educate you
