Dr. Santhanam is very caring, observant and thorough along with having great bedside manners. She obviously wants her patients to be able to enjoy life to the fullest, free of pain and negative symptoms. Her expertise is best in internal medicine. She is much less confident in skeletal-type diagnosis such as injuries to knees, ankles and wrists. But I don't think you can get much better for a doctor who knows how to treat internal ailments such as diabetes, asthma, intestinal, etc matters. I highly recommend her.
