Dr. SantaMaria’s Reviews

June 23, 2023

Again, I am a new patient and Dr. Santamaria was very patient with me. He took the time to talk to me and listen to me. This included his assistant. She was very informative and very nice.

Provider never asked any questions or concerns I had about the upcoming procedure. He was in and out in 5 minutes at most. I could have stopped him to ask questions, but I did not. Not totally his fault.

Dr. Santamaria is a good Dr

March 23, 2023

While the Doc wasn't the expert, his knowledge was exceptional. He took the time to cover the CT scan with me to show me the details and help me understand what procedures are and aren't necessary. Good human being as he very easily could have set "there are no concerns and you are good" and sent me on my way
