    How was your appointment with Dr. Abad-Santos?

    Oct 07, 2020
    I am reading these other reviews and I can’t believe it Dr. Santos has been my psychiatrist for over three years and she is absolutely the best She is an angel sent to me by God She has helped me through some of the hardest times of my life and she will continue to I will be her patient forever I truly love her and highly highly recommend her to anyone About a year or so back she did have an issue with her billing clerk which has all been taken care of To the person that said that she will just prescribe any drug that you ask for that is completely untrue she prescribes what is necessary to help your quality of life You work together with her and she has the final say I would probably not be here if it wasn’t for her I could go on and on I love her I feel anyone saying anything negative besides the billing which is been corrected there must be some misunderstanding I would welcome anyone to contact me and have a conversation about her :-)
