Seems like a competent DR, but he needs slow down! Patients are not $ signs.

I had shoulder surgery recently. He rushed through every single appointment. And seems like he tries to spend as little time with you as possible. My surgery went great, but I still wonder if it was really necessary. Made me feel stupid for asking questions, or asking about how necessary surgery was. I think he just looks at his patients as a $ sign and thinks "will this get approved by insurance or not" - instead of "is this what is best for my patient?" - While I am pleased with the actual surgery - I can't help but feel like the entire process was rushed. Every single interaction rushed. I am happy that my surgery more or less turned out good, but I could not confidently refer anyone else to him. I REALLY wish I would have gotten a second opinion. I'm thankful that I have excellent post care physical therapy from someone else. If Dr. Santoro is reading this - SLOW DOWN - act like you care about your patients. Don't make them feel stupid when they ask questions and don't act like you ALWAYS have somewhere more important to be.
