    Biography

    Despite all the recent advances in care, there are still many women who believe health issues such as incontinence or pelvic pain are something they just have to live with. Some women mistakenly believe nothing can be done about their symptoms, or that treatment always requires surgery. Others are reluctant to talk to a doctor because of embarrassment or a belief that "it's just part of aging."

    The best part of my job is helping women understand all of the treatment options available – from new medications to simple outpatient procedures that take a matter of minutes to perform. There are so many more successful options then even 10 years ago – and every day, I have the chance to restore a woman's quality of life, often after years of symptoms and inconvenience

    I mistakenly wrote the comments about her in the first comment section. Refer to that section! Not thrilled with her. I'm a bright college grad and felt like she was talking down to me when I asked for her conclusions and findings to be given to me in writing!

    *Dr. Santos is warm & kind. Her knowledge and care are ON POINT. I felt well cared for and trusted her expertise. She spent time explaining & communicating procedures, equipment, pre-op, post-op - EVERYTHING!
