Ratings for Dr. Joseph P. Santiamo
First visit ....... Oh, "blank" is my patient. This he says to my husband. The blank is his ex-wife, this is a complete violation of of HIPPA law of patient privacy. We could care less but I think his ex-wife should be concerned about to whom her doctor is referencing her name to. His office is backwards - not computer integrated at all! Last time my husband needed a refill the staff made him call his prescription plan on his cell phone and then the staff would get on the phone. NYS regulations states that prescriptions need to electronically issued. There are 'hardship' exemptions . I guess being computer illiterate is one of them. He could use new staff. The present staff could careless, especially the ladies that have been there for a zillion years. Forget about being welcomed, count yourself lucky if you get a smile or hello. Worst than the DMV. Oh, one good thing depending on how you look at it is he gives Rx's freely. Yes, we have found a new doctor with a professionally trained staff and electronically connected.
I have been a patient of Dr. Santiamo since 1999. He diagnosed me with hypothyroidism and prescribed the correct treatment. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and does not rush me out of his office. I feel very comfortable with him and have the utmost confidence in his diagnosis and treatments that he prescribes for me. I am very fortunate to have such a kind and caring doctor.
He seemed polite and concerned with getting my dad off of his many medications. He was very booked and busy but we received his full attention. He also seem to address my questions and concerns. It was my first visit with him so we will see. I rated fair until future visits
Dr. Santiamo is extremely knowledgeable and does not take long at all to come to a correct diagnosis. Dr. Santiamo is a very caring person and explains his thoughts well. Dr. Santiamo is not intimidating at all and takes all precautions to ensure that his patients receive the care and explanations they need.
