Specialties

Dr. Juan F Santos has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Like most doctors; independent and not much caring for you.

One Star

I was sent to him to have a test to determine if I needed to have surgery. Three months later I still can't get his office to release my test results. They also refused to give me a business card because I didn't need a return appointment.

Test results

I was sent to Dr. Santos for test by my regular Dr. When I started to leave I looked for a business card. The receptionist only patients with a return appointment could have a business card. Who doesn't give out business cards? I've been waiting over 6 weeks and I can't get my test results so I can have a much needed surgery. Maybe that's why he doesn't want anyone to get a business card.

Homophobic

I was shaking and in tears after being denied access to a see Dr. Santos by his receptionist because of my gender and listing two men who were obviously married (shared last name) on my intake form. She scoffed at my gender and shook her head at seeing the married men. Then her entire attitude changed towards me and she refused me access to the doctor. This was witnessed by the Nurse of my referring physician who I called and had on speaker for support. She recognized that this was an unsafe environment and recommended I leave. I will be following up with complaints to the Medical Board and lawyers.
