Our Doctor

James J. Santiago, MS, D.C., L.Ac, DACBSP

Dr. James Santiago’s first acupuncture treatment was back in 1973. He was playing high school soccer and injured his ankle. His parents had just come back from China, Korea and Japan, where they were studying acupuncture.

They applied acupuncture for his injured ankle and the injury healed much faster than normal. All of James’ coaches were amazed. By the late 1980s and early 1990’s acupuncture began its growth in large numbers in the United States. An acupuncture College opened in New York City and Dr. Santiago enrolled in 1995. He later graduated in 1998. He applies his new knowledge to AIDs patients in New York City and to many sports related injuries with very good results.

My name is Kamales. For three years I had a painful menstruation and I bled heavily. Due to the severity I had to be hospitalized for five days and have been on medication for many years; and still my problem did not go away. My GYN diagnosed me with fibroids, and ovarian cyst, endometriosis and hydrosalpinex. After two years I had to get surgery, but that did not help me. I heard about Dr. Santiago and his acupuncture treatment so I decided to go to him.
The results of treatment with Dr. Santiago started out slow but I can tell I was getting better. The pain and bleeding were much less. I had about 37 treatments with Dr. Santiago when I was called by GYN doctor for another re-examination. I had an ultrasound done and my fibroids were gone, I just had a little swelling in my tube. Everyone was surprised! I was very excited because my doctor cancelled the second surgery. Thank you Dr. Santiago for fixing my problem!

When I first went to Dr. Santiago I had a swollen knee, terrible back pain and a toe that was not healed completely from an accident. Doctor has helped me beyond words. I am now able to walk for long periods of time. My back is 100% better I am able to bend and pick up my daughter without a problem. It was a long and hard job for Dr. Santiago but I never felt uncomfortable or uneasy in his office. Thank you for being so flexible with my appointments. The office staff was amazing as well.
