Great Dr. and staff

Been to Dr. Santangelo numerous times and I can’t say enough about her skill and care. Since there are few Urologist where I live, Dr. Santangelo and staff are always accommodating to me and take my 2 hour drive into consideration. I have never been put off and they work with me to insure I can see the Dr. promptly.

One Star

Only giving her a one star because I have to in order to complete review. Friday, January 19, 2018 I went to ER due to kidney pain. They completed a CT scan that showed I had a kidney stone in my right side and go see Dr. I already had a Dr since this stone has been sitting in my right kidney for 5 years. So called my Dr. Santangelo and got appt that following Monday. She told me stone was still too high and if she would try to take out it would get thrown back into kidney. She wanted to wait it out, and made appt for a month. Told me to pop some pain meds as needed, etc. So Month later went back, but day before I got a scan to bring back to her office to see if stone had moved. She felt the CT scan showed the stone at 9 mm, but other scan showed stone 6-7 mm which is passable. So told me to cont. and come back in another month. So keeping paying my $45 co pay and wait it out. Had appointment in April that I cancelled and tried to reschedule for May but office gave me run around cause I cancelled my April appt. Was sent to her nurse's VM and just keep getting run around. I wasn't in pain so wasn't forcing appointment since doctor never made it urgent. So July called back to get appointment and they couldn't get me in till Monday, September 10th. The Sunday night before my appointment my stone finally moved and I was in excruciating pain for 4 hours. My husband called Dr. Santangelos office after hours and she told me to take two pain meds, and Ibuprofen and come in Monday @ 8:30. Went to office and she told me "Oh wow why did you wait so long. You should have told my office it was urgent". So we set my produce for that coming Thursday signed some paper work, and then her nurse comes in and says.... "Oh you have HMO and are not covered, everything would be out of pocket". How is it nine months later you noticed I'm not covered?? So I had to get a rush referral from my HMO to find a new Dr. It has been 2 weeks and I have had the stone and stent removed. Stone was a 9mm and should have been removed from the start in January. DO NOT SEE THIS DR SHE WILL MAKE YOU SUFFER. STAFF IN UNKNOWLEDGEABLE!!!
