Patients, nurses and students describe Dr. Santoso as being compassionate and kind-hearted. Dr. Santoso has been recognized by Memphis Magazine as one of the “Best Doctors in Memphis” because of his commitment to patient care. Dr. Santoso spends most of day either taking care of patients or working at home on research projects and reading inspiring books.

At home, he is an amateur handyman, which explains why you may find him wandering around at a local Home Depot occasionally.
