I had been getting the runaround at my last hospital in seeing a hematologist, and was finally lucky enough to have been referred to see Dr. Santhanam. She was so knowledgeable, answered all my questions and explained my condition a way that I understood without making me feel she was talking down to me. More tests were ordered, and I look forward to getting even more answers at my follow up. I feel like I am in excellent hands!

I felt like the doctor was annoyed that she had to see me. Her words were something like "We never see patients who just have post-surgical blood clots." I was made to feel very much as if my ailment was not exotic enough to be worthy of her attention.

Dr. Santham listens to my concerns and addresses each and every one of them. The issues I have is due to the wait time of 15-30 minutes in the lobby after the appointment time. I also have issues with getting tests/labs the doctor orders scheduled timely and accurately. I have to constantly call back to inquire about when I will be contacted and advised for appointment dates for orders the doctor submit. This is normally a month or two post orders being submitted.
