ABOUT DR.
Santos-Ocampo

Loading ...

Dr. Santos-Ocampo completed his undergraduate degree at the University of the Philippines with a bachelor of science degree, magna cum laude. He then received his medical degree from the University of the Philippines School of Medicine in 1984.

Dr. Santos-Ocampo relocated to Providence, Rhode Island, where he completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine, followed by a fellowship in Cardiology—all through the Brown University School of Medicine. He then was honored to be invited to serve as a faculty staff member in the Division of Cardiology at The Miriam Hospital and the Brown University Program in Medicine.

Santos-Ocampo returned to the Philippines to practice cardiology for nearly ten years from 1993 to 2002 where he pioneered the development of nuclear and interventional cardiology. Because of his efforts, he was recognized and awarded as one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Men” in the Philippines. Dr. Santos-Ocampo emphasizes preventive cardiology and uses the appropriate complementary state of the art non-invasive diagnostic modalities before considering minimally invasive approaches such as heart catheterizations and coronary stenting.

Dr. Santos-Ocampo relocated to Naples, Florida in 2002. He prides himself in providing the highest level of compassionate care and individualizing his approach for every patient. He feels so privileged that patients entrust their lives to him and feels it is his duty to make an impact regardless of their level of cardiac care needed.
