Amazing! I’m so happy Dr. Santos is my doctor. So professional and nice. The receptionist and the nurse as well.
Excellent first visit.
Always friendly, great bedside manner, listens to your concerns/symptoms and comes to a very thorough diagnosis.
He is good. Explaining all the things
I needed to find a new doctor and after looking at the ratings and location I decided to go with Dr. Santos. He was extremely easy to talk to and answered all of my questions. I met with him about 5 minutes after I walked in since I filled out all of my paperwork through Zocdoc beforehand. The office is also right by the Grove Street PATH station!
He is our family's primary dr and my daughter's pedia. He delivers exemplary service and listens, really listens, to your concerns. Great service and clean clinic and toilet. Would highly recommend the dr and clinic.
Always reassuring and never rushes you out when you have further questions
Great experience all around.
Dr. Ray Santos was very thorough in doing his history and physical examination. He's very knowledgeable and had excellent bedside manner. He took time to listen. His staff is very nice and the office is clean. Highly recommended!
Very detailed and asks the right questions to make you feel comfortable.
Never rushes through, very helpful and reassuring. Great family doctor.
He is an excellent dr and is quite easy to talk to. He helped me get my hubbys meds when there was a problem with the insurance (ICD code was not approved) by talking with the pharmacist and taking the time to find the right ICD code acceptable for our insurance.
Excellent Doctor. Not rushed at all and comprehensive.
He is very nice and he answers all the questions highly recommended
He was extremely friendly and thoroughly available. The office was also very clean and the staff overall were all very welcoming. Strongly recommend!
Excellent first visit. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Santos and was very pleased with the time he took to explain things with me.
First time I saw Dr. Santos and everything went well. His staff is very nice.
Dr. Santos is a great doctor i recommend him a 100%
By far the best Doctor I've seen. Many doctors will assess your symptoms and find a solution to your health, however Dr.Santos knows how to speak with people and make others feel comfortable expressing health concerns. He also recommends other health resources to support your optimal health. Professional and impressed with their services.
I will see him again and switch to him as my pediatrician
This was my first time visiting Doctor Santos and I really appreciate how everyone was compassionate and helped me as I was dealing with severe back pain. Dr. Santos listened to my history and I felt he handled my situation to the best of his abilities. Thank you to his assistant..very patient with me.
Excellent as always.
Dr Santos was very friendly, gave great personal insights and genuinely cared about me during my first visit with him. I will be picking him as my primary care doctor as a result of the positive experience.
Great bedside manner. Gentle but matter of fact tone.
Dr Santos is very patient and explain my condition in great detail to help me understand the cause and how to eliveate its impact.
It was good. He did not have the answers to my problem but he was good at explaining we will work together to find out what needs to be done. The only thing is sometimes i have to wait two days to a week for the test results - which might seem long when you are hurting. But definitely not a deal breaker to go see Dr. Ray Santos.
Dr. Santos and his team was excellent. The fact that they are open on sundays is a huge plus. It's hard to find doctor offices open on the weeken and for a working parent this was great to find. The office was nice and clean. The receptionist was nice and informative . The nurse who took my daughters vitals was very nice. Dr Santos was so warm and welcoming . Took his time to answered all my questions. Very nice doctor and glad he will be my daughters primary doctor. I'm even going to make him my primary doctor !
He listens to my concerns and has a good rapport with my 4 year old daughter. He also checks my daughter throughly and that's always a good sign for a pediatrician dr. Highly recommend.
Very friendly and professional service.
One of the best doctor I have met. He is really patient and do not rush out. Plus, we were in and out by one hour top. He was able to answer all of our questions without seeming to be annoyed! I will definitely keep going there.
Dr. Ray Santos is very nice, courteous, and friendly physician. He seems to be very knowledgeable and is a truly professional in his field. He really cares about my overall well-being.
We were late for our appointment but we were still nicely accommodated. Dr Santos always takes his time to find out if you have any concerns or issues, and listens. My daughter (almost 4 year old) likes him so its a plus.
Probably wouldn't revisit because the office has a no-illicit-substance policy, with random drug-testing.
Dr. Santos was helpful, pleasant, and as concerned as always. He took his time with me, and offered a thorough examination. His nurse and receptionist were also great.
He's always very thoughtful, considers what I'm saying. I feel like I can trust his guidance and on top of that, they're open on weekends. Very convenient.
The place appeared to be very clean, modern, and neat. The staff was very nice and polite, as well. The doctor seemed very professional and understanding. I think I may have found my PCP
I love this office. Dr ray is great and the office team are very chill but attentive
Dr. Santos was friendly and did his best to ensure that I was getting the proper treatment.
All I have to say out of the Doc's I had in my lifetime. Mister Doc Santos was on point and takes his craft professionally well. He cares about his patients. Definitely will be seeing him again. Kudos
My first visit was a great success. Quiet office (however I went at 8am on Sunday), friendly staff and was seen right away even with 3 other patients in waiting room. Nurses were very clear and happy to answer questions and Dr. Santos was excellent. Clean office and convenient location. Offered advice on other doctors in the area without 'selling' anything and returned my blood work within days. Will be back!
Hey was very patient and attentive to my issues. He tried to understand the problem and suggested remedies. He is very pleasant person and didn't rush me at all. The staff was very nice and friendly. Will highly recommend this doctor.
We went to this doctor to complete the annual physical for insurance only. Though some of the more detailed questions that we had to the doctors were not fully addressed or bluntly disregarded. Probably not coming back unless emergency.
i'm sure i've found my new regular dr ^_^
Excellent first experience. Very professional and personable and answered all the questions I had. Highly recommend. His staff was also excellent.
Great doctor, did not feel rushed, asked in depth questions and tried to really get to know me.
Dr. Santos was fantastic.
It really nice.
I went to this doctor bc a friend referred meandvecause they have late hours. Neither are a good reason to return. First of all I filled out all of the new patient paperwork on zocdoc. But called the office to ensure I had all the paperwork filled out so they emailed me a packet -- again I filled everything out and scanned it back to them. They confirmed receipt. I arrived for my appointment 15 minutes ahead of schedule and was asked to fill out the EXACT same packet I had already completed and scanned back to them. When I pointed this out and requested they checked their email they brushed me off and said that they were different t forms--I assure you after filling them out 3 times they were not. After I handed the completed packet to them I was approached 3 additional times for my signature on forms I that had been completed and sent back to them via email. the final time I asked them to PLEASE check their email they finally did. I was then shown to an examination room where the tech--DID NOT KNOW HOW TO USE THE BLOOD PRESSURE CUFF. He took my BP 3 times and each time got wacky numbers--I knew this because I have high BP and take my own BP at home every day. When Dr Santos finally arrived he took my BP again and received a normal reading. When I pointed out to him his tech didn't know how to use the BP cuff he summarily dismissed my comment. The front office staff's utter incompetence was indicative of the type of appointment I had. And I will not be recommending DRS to anyone I know. Everyone, from the clueless front desk, to the tech who had no idea how to take my BP, to Dr Santos himself who would not listen when I told him above--was horrible. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.
It was a very comfortable environment. I was seen fast. He stays open late! all around, great experience!
Dr. Santos is very helpful, and I enjoy working with him as my primary care physician.
Dr. Santos is great. Kind, courteous, thoughtful, and went the extra mile to ensure the visit was thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Santos as a PCP.
Hey was great. I came in 25 minutes early and saw him right after I finished the paperwork. He was thoroughly, professional and seemed genuinely concerned to figure out what was wrong and treat. He also does this thing where he narrates what he's writing on the computer, which I thought was good to hear, I don't like when doctors just jot silent notes down. Very nice guy, I'd recommend him.
I would describe Dr. Santos as professional and thorough. I have had to visit 3 times in 2 months, for illness as well as an annual physical. For the illness visit, I was asked thorough questions to explore all possibilities for the cause, as well as received follow up on two occasions directly from the doctor. These little things make a difference in your experience as a patient! Compared with past physicians I was impressed and have recommended this office for friends in the area.
Great primary care physician!
Always a pleasant visit -- which is more than one can normally say about medical appointments! Dr. Santos is attentive, patient, and careful to fully explain and discuss treatment options. I feel taken care of by him and his team. Thank you, Dr. Santos.
Very happy to him as my general physician. Very comfortable speaking to him and felt he truly cared. highly recommend
Santos is amazing

Visiting Dr. Ray Santos is always a pleasant one. He is our family doctor and we are very happy with him and his office. Front desk ladies are very prompt and helpful. Recommended to everyone.
Dr. Santos was very kind and professional. He addressed all my concerns and tailored care to my needs.
He is such a nice doctor! Really took the time to listen to me and gave ma thorough exam with lots of advice. Great personable skills too
He was thorough in our annual exam (my husband and I, and a well baby checkup for my 3 yr old), and he listened well to our concerns and questions. He was very patient and had good rapport with my 3 yr old daughter. Would highly recommend him.
He would patiently listen the patient's health problems, examine and then explain the treatment he'll use. In case of emergency, he will give you an appointment on the same day as well upon insisting which is usually not the case unless its not an urgent medical care unit.
Dr. Santos is very friendly and kind. I'm new to the area and after my first visit felt like I had been going to him for years. Highly recommend! Note the office is kind of tricky to find as they share space with other medical professionals.
got right in and overall good experience
This was our first visit to Dr. Santos and he was excellent, professional and knowledgeable. We are going to make him our regular internist!
Doctor was very nice and polite and would recommend a visit for kids
Dr. S takes his time and truly listens to your concerns as a patient. He takes your health step by step and makes you feel comfortable throughout your entire visit. Looking forward to working with Dr. S for future health needs. Thank you Dr. S!
First visit as new patient with Dr. Santos and couldn't have had a more positive experience. Dr. Santos was welcoming and professional and took the time to answer all the questions I asked.
Dr. Ray Santos was very informative and kind.
He was very professional and was taking his time to find the problem.
One of the best doctors, he took the time to understand my medical history. I'm someone who asks a lot of questions. He took the time to answer my question/concerns. Doesn't force you on meds, unless really required. Overall, I would totally recommend DRS medical.
Dr. Santos is the best doctor I've ever seen. He listens to his patients to truly understand what is wrong and genuinely cares about their well being. Highly recommend.
Dr. Santos is very professional as well as a caring physician I would highly recommend him.
Very professional, was able to take care of all of my health care needs. Open after regular business hours, making it ideal for those who have to work late.
Very nice guy. Makes it easy and comfortable to ask any questions
Dr. Santos is a pleasure, as is Doctor Sharma. We're so glad to have found their practice. They are patient, understanding our our new parent jitters, well informed, and available 24/7. The wait was in fact only 10 minutes.
Great doctor with a good sense of humor and Knowledgeable
Dr. Santos takes the time to understand your problem and makes you feel very secure. No waiting time before to see him, very nice and professional people. Thank you!
Excellent doctor!!! Very friendly and happy with my visits!
I"ll be honest I was feeling really sick when i got to his office that I stared crying when he approach me.. Doctor was very atentive and patient and looked consern about my situation. he listen to every word I have to say, no rush from his behalf he send me to do some test and took my situation in to his care...going in next week for follow up
Dr. Santos is everything you want in a family doctor: patient, knowledgeable, kind, and careful to explain and answer questions thoroughly. Both my in person visits and phone calls with his office were respectful, professional, and reassuring. Being sick is never fun but doctors like Dr. Santos help you get through it.
Dr. Santos was simply incredible. He is kind, clear with his explanations, and an active and attentive listener. I've neglected going to the doctor for years because I've been unhappy with care I've received from multiple physicians in the past, however Dr. Santos has restored my faith in physicians as a profession. I will be a loyal patient of his for years!
This was my first visit with the Dr. Santos. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. I plan on returning for my physical.
Truly like the attention that was given to me. The one-on-one boutique style practice suits me. Very new, nice office. Highly recommend this practice.
Another great visit with Dr. Santos!!! Never any wait time and he was very thorough with my daughters checkup!! Very pleased as always
I was extremely pleased with Dr. Santos!! He was very attentive and spoke directly to my son to make him feel comfortable even though my son was nervous at first. After our visit my son said he wanted to come to this doctor all the time!! We have definitely found the right pediatrician finally and I will be back with my other children for check ups as well!!!
He's very patient to answer all our questions and explains us all the needed informations.
Dr. Santos was AMAZING! Highly recommended and got back blood results for me within 24 hours
Dr. Santos was friendly, great personality and bedside manner. He was through and took time to get to know our needs. The best part he can see everyone in the family.

Excellent experience very knowledgeable and thorough would definitely recommend Dr Santos office clean and inviting I'm a patient for life!
Dr. Santos was very professional and addressed my concerns thoroughly.
Surrounding area isn't the best, but not that bad. Parking was sparse. Had to be buzzed into the front door. Office was clean. Staff was polite. Doctor was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. No complaints, made a follow up appointment.
Very good for my 1st visit!
Dr Santos was incredibly welcoming and attentive. He spent quite a bit of time with me, listened attentively and was an absolute pleasure to deal with
He's very thorough and takes time talking to the patient . He is also very knowledgable and friendly .

Dr. Santos was really friendly and effective in his treatment. Definitely recommend.
Office conveniently located near Grove St PATH in downtown Jersey City. I was seen in minutes, Dr. Santos was very attentive and knowledgeable. I've already booked an appointment for a full physical with him in 2 weeks. Highly recommend.
At my first visit the doctor seemed like a nice guy, I will definitely return.
Best Doctor I have visited, answered all of my concerns and explained everything to me in plain English.
He was very caring and professional. He asked lots of questions to get to know about my kids background. So important and appreciated
