Dr. Santos is the best, kind, listens AND hears you. I could not be happier with my doctor. The rest of the office staff has been lovely. The guy who took my blood was GREAT, he dealt with my fears withoutissue & made me laugh so I felt more comfortable, I can't explain how important that is to me. The lady at the desk is friendly & helpful, she went out of her way to get me a convenient appointment. I am extremely happy that I chose DRS Medical as my doctor's office.

Went for an annual checkup, Dr. Santos and the nurse practitioner that saw me was pretty good. They were nice enough, but I though could have been a bit more thorough compare to other clinics I've had annual checks with. Theother staff at the clinic needs a lot of work though. Their instructions were not clear, and they weren't very polite. They also seems a bit disorganized since both Dr. Santos and the nurse practitioner wanted me to get a flu shot, but the nurses/staff just told me to leave after having my blood drawn. (To be fair, I also forgot about it until I left but I would expect they have some sort of system in place to track what is suppose to be done for a patient.) Overall ok experience but could be more thorough and organized.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Santos, and after moving to the area 2 years ago, and having had the same physician back home for nearly 30 years, I was a bit nervous. I was instantly at ease with thefriendly nature of the reception staff, and the Dr. and his medical staff were both courteous and extremely professional. I feel very fortunate to have chose Dr. Santos as my primary care physician now that I am a JC resident. Highly recommended!

My visit with Dr. Ray Santos was excellent, just like the last one. It was a well visit. He is amazing with my son, so knowledgable and friendly. My son then got shots who were given by a lady (I assumeshe was a nurse or a NP, but I didn’t ask nor look at her name tag...) and she was amazing too. The first shot my son didn’t even feel and with the second he cried for a second and then was good again.

My PCP in Manhattan relocated his practice to Florida so after ten years I needed to find a new doctor. I researched Dr. Santos online and chose him due to his high ratings at his location in Jersey City. He did not disappoint.

I’ve visited Dr. Santos and he is now my primary care physician. I was in a sticky situation when my previous primary care physician stopped accepting my insurance at which point I started looking up for a new doctor. I choseDr. Santos initially because of the proximity of his cleaning to my apartment and his glowing reviews. He surely didn’t disappoint. The wait time is not too much, the office staff is courteous and efficient. Dr. Santos himself has excellent bed side manner and listens to my problems patiently. I also like the ease of being able to talk to the doctor through the online Healow app which avoids repeated visits to his office. Another big convenience is that his clinic has late hours on weekdays and is also open on weekends which is a huge plus for working professionals like me who find it hard to schedule doctor visits during work hours. Highly recommend Dr. Santos!

He allowed me to vent my concerns (there were many) and didn’t dismiss my self diagnosis rather, he put me at ease by letting me know I was an overall healthy patient. I overthink every little symptom I have and definitelyhad many concerns about my health so I was happy that the doctor heard each one and didn’t let me feel like the hypochondriac that I am. That means a lot to me.

Wonderful facility. Great doctors. Very efficient support staff. You couldn't ask for anything else. Everything is so well organized and taken care of that you don't have to worry about a thing. The online portal makes it easy to send messagesto the doctors, check your medical records, refill your prescriptions, even book your next appointment. Our family is happy we have found Dr. Santos and Dr. Sharma. Not going anywhere else!
