My personal doctor is Dr. Santiago and he's amazing. He's done 2 surgeries on me already and may be doing a third and he does it with such professionalism and kindness and has done a beautiful job on both of them so far, a hammer toe and 2 other toes that were leaning and then the removal of my baby toe due to infection in the bone.
