I was first referred to Dr. Santos in 1999 by a PhD therapist who diagnosed me with text book case OCD. Started on SSRIs --high doses, yet successful. However, within a year or so, ADHD from childhood reared its head. Began a mild and effective dose of meds which treated that issue adequately. Over a seven year period I made my monthly 15-minute "med-checks" with Santos and all was fine. In year 7, I suffered a very unfortunate issue at work wherein I was wrongly accused of certain alleged actions by HR at a company event. My regularly scheduled med-check appt w/ Santos was scheduled a day or so after I learned of this work issue. I spoke to Santos about it for 5-10 minutes, but my time ran out before I was done discussing it. He told me that I would need to to book a separate appt for 30/45 minutes to continue. OK fair enough. I did. He could not have cared less about my emotional turmoil over this very significant and serious issue. After 10-15 minutes he was shuffling me out the door--I think he assumed we were on our 15 minute schedule...I thought (to myself) for a moment to point out to him that we still had 20-30 minutes still to go on the clock, yet it was clearly evident that he did not care about my issue nor could be bothered with nor desired to hear me. Really? I've spent the last seven years in your care and the first meaningful crisis I have...you can't be bothered? So I paid my bill for 45 minutes, despite having only 15 and never returned. I trusted this man--and his careless attitude really left me feeling violated. The man is more interested in his A.M. mental ward activities/endeavors and his afternoon practice with back-to-back 15 minute med-checks is his paycheck. This may be an exaggeration, but not by a far stretch. In retrospect, I should have lodged a complaint with the Medical Board at the time--as the fallout from this issue did result in/contribute to extended clinical depression, which thankfully to another doc (and my current doc for six years now) I resumed mental health. Surely the statute of limitations has run re: my ability to lodge a formal complaint --which really is neither here nor there. But do be smart and be wary of those in 'control' of you mental health regimin. I do not recommend Dr. Santos for anyone. Wise man, prudent man saying...be wise, learn from the mistakes of others (and not your own god-willing)...

Following the suicide of a close friend I felt I needed to be seen to manage my own health. I was not on therapeutic doses of my medications at that time. "Wait and see" was what I was told. My bipolar disorder did not disappoint. Shortly following the event, I became more ill than ever before. I changed Dr.'s but it was too late. After the high came the low that lasted for years. Finally, I received ECT to pull the depression together. It's been about 9 years since then. I am so glad I changed Dr.'s at "wait and see". Now I am followed very close by a Baylor physician and another from UT. I wonder what would have happened if Dr. Santos had adjusted my medications to therapeutic levels at the beginning, before I became "sick". But, I missed most of my 40's and lost time with my family that I can't get back. And, P.S., the friend who committed suicide was given a clean bill of health from Dr. Santos. Always, be your own educated advocate!!!
