Dr. Juan G. Santiago

Hello, I am Juan G. Santiago, M.D.- an ophthalmologist who is currently completing a Vitreoretinal Surgical Fellowship at Valley Retina Institute. I began pursuing my education by studying Medicine at the University of Puerto Rico. There, I was able to complete an internship in Ophthalmology and a three-year residency program. Proceeding, I completed an Ophthalmology Medical Retinal Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, which has given me insight as to what to expect as an ophthalmologist.
