visit with Dr Santos was very good .I found out I was taking a medication wrong time & I need to drink more water.

Not sure what I will do since Dr. Polanco is leaving this practice. I really don't want to have to start hunting for a Doctor again as it is very hard to find a Doctor that is compassionate and treats you as a person wanting your opinion on your care.

I did recommend a friend and she already has an appointment with Dr Santos.
