Orlando Santandreu, MD, OB/GYN, has served in his role as head of obstetrics and gynecology at Forest Hills Hospital since fall 2014. Dr. Santandreu is an experienced physician leader who appreciates the importance of the relationship between community physicians and their patients.
“Taking care of moms and babies is a special form of clinical care,”
Dr. Santandreu said. “Other specialties don’t always involve being in people’s lives like this one. You meet the patient, along with her husband, their families, referred friends and extended family members. Being an OB/GYN is a great way to help people. I find it a beautiful experience to follow them through life.”
Dr. Santandreu completed medical school at Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez in Juarez, Mexico, and completed residencies at St. Barnabas Hospital and St. Michael’s Medical Center – Newark. He is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
