Patients Treated:



Dr. Santana is passionate about all neurological conditions, from the treatable and curable conditions to some degenerative conditions with a progressive course. She enjoys treating patients who have migraines, cluster headaches and trigeminal neuralgias. She finds it rewarding to be able to “give [their] life back” and treat headache patients so they are able to enjoy more time with their family and at work once their headaches are controlled.  

She has treated some patients with CIDP or myathenia gravis who have recovered from being in a wheelchair and have become ambulatory. She also finds fulfillment guiding and treating patients on their course of progressive diseases, such as dementia and ALS.

As a neurologist, her mission is not to always “cure," but to guide patients and family through the expectations of certain conditions and to provide the best quality of life possible.

    Dr. Santana and her medical assistant and the staff were wonderful. I've had my neurological condition for over approximately 40 years, and she is the only doctor who has taken the time to figure out what medications work. It's great.

    Dr. Santana is a wonderful Neurologist. I know the field is lacking in enough providers and especially ones that listen, spend time with their patients and care, Dr. Santana does all three! I'm truly blessed to have her as part of my medical care team.

  • Oct 14, 2023

    This was my first visit to a Neurologist. I was very nervous as I knew something was going on with my health. Dr. Santana put me at ease immediately with her caring demeanor and she listened to me as I told her what was happening to my body. This alone allevia ted some of the anxiety of this visit. Dr. Santana took the time to answer my questions, provided me with at home instructions and had the notes from my visit printed out for me. The staff at the front desk were all very friendly, especially the young lady who checked me in upon arrival. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Santana and the staff at this office. Thank you all for caring.
