Dr. Annie M Santos has the following 2 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

This has to be the absolute worst version of a doctor I have ever seen. When you visit her office she see more pharmaceutical reps than patients. She wants you all to be on some sort of "treatment". If you submit to nodding when speaking to her and saying "of course Dr." she will keep you as a patient, and if you do that YOU BELONG THERE! BUT, if you ask any questions or want to understand something better about your health she will become angry . I'm not sure if the anger comes from you wanting to know something , but I think it's more about questioning her intellect. She will become angry and never answer the question. She has some deep flaws in her personality. I would expect my doctor to answer my question with facts, not anger then disregard the questions completely. It does seem to be that her intellect is in question as it should be. HMMMM... So here's the deal, everyone should have questions when they go to the doctor. This creates a healthy conversation that hopefully will create a better understanding for both parties (Dr. and Patient), and if you disagree you can go home and research for more facts to draw your own conclusion. There should never be a hostile environment created by a so called Physician. If your Dr refuses to listen to you like Annie Marie then fire her and go get a real DR. She tends to forget you are her customer, you can go elsewhere, gotta love our freedoms in this country! Anyway, don't let her get you hooked on medicine, get out while you can.
After spending a few minutes with her on my first visit I assumed she was having a bad day, but every visit after has been the same.She is extremely condescending and attacks her patients for asking any questions or disagreeing with her. She doesn't even care to know about how you got from A to B in the progress of a medical condition. She REALLY DOESN'T CARE! Her behavior goes beyond not caring. When I questioned her on disease and quoted some facts, she came back at me that she had been practicing for 30 plus years and continues her education yearly , which after a little research I found out that she takes training staff as credits towards continued education. This is permissible but it does not update her antiquated information she is working off of to supposedly heal people. Come on, medicine has made huge advancements and when this women was trying to site some of those and was completely off of what the conclusions that were made by some really credible medical studies. She made bizarre statements and the entire conversation seemed to be based around "I am a DR. and you are stupid. Do what I say or else!". there was no conversation about how I felt about certain treatments when I tried to express how I felt she spoke over me and did not listen to get a full picture of what I knew to be true about my health. I really knew she was a crackpot when she said that an A1C test was a once in a lifetime test. I think she needs to throw in the towel before she really does some damage. Please here me you do not want to see this QUACK. She is so twice removed from what good medical practice is , that it is frightening. Go anywhere even a veterinarian has more concern over their patient than this old duck.
I accompanied my 70 year old mother to her appointment & was apalled at the way this woman spoke & acted toward first my mother, & then me also. I had expected there to be some dr./patient communication as my mom is facing knee replacement surgery & has some other health issues. This woman does not ALLOW questions of any kind and responded in the most condescending manner, almost like she was trying to make my mother look stupid for asking a simple question. When I tried to voice my concern about something I'd recently read about aspirin, this person actually insulted me with her snotty attitude, informing me that I am not a doctor & never even allowed me to finish my sentence. How can someone who treats people in such a way even know her patients' full condition or unique problems? And please don't think I went there to be rude; I wouldn't disrespect a medical professional because I've met so many that truly are trying to help people. I had simply read an article & wondered if she knew about it & the source it came from. I was just amazed at the way dr. Santos belittled my mother in front of me, speechless actually. When we left, I explained to my mom that there are other places to go where she'll be treated like a person who matters. Hopefully (& my mom feels the same way) neither of us will ever have to see that witches (with a B) face again. Sorry Dr. but you totally suck.
When you can see her she's a pretty good doctor. Although she tends to be dismissive of your thoughts or ideas. She will make assumptions based on just what she sees without asking any additional questions. She is also habitually late. I usually wait an hour and a half or more between the arriving and finally seeing her in the exam room. The time of day of the appointment seems to have no impact on timeliness.
