Jennifer R. Santiago, MD, Physician at GW Medical Faculty Associates for the OB/GYN Association of Northern Virginia, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in obstetrics and gynecology.
Coming from a family of physicians, Dr. Santiago knew she wanted to pursue a career in medicine for as long as she could remember. In high school, she witnessed all of her peers struggling with their health, but she especially noticed the struggle that her female friends went through. This is what piqued her interest in women’s health. When it came time to attend college, Dr. Santiago attended Bryn Mawr College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in biology in 1995. Later, in 1999, she acquired an MD from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Following her departure from medical school, Dr. Santiago began her career as a resident physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital. She remained there for four years, eventually gaining enough experience to relocate to Perfectly Female Women’s Healthcare. There, she excelled as a physician until 2007. Dr. Santiago then took her talents to the OBGYN Associates of N. VA Ltd. Until 2014, she treated a multitude of patients, providing as much assistance as necessary. In the years since then, she has demonstrated success as a physician for the GW Medical Faculty Associates for the OB/GYN Association of Northern Virginia. Dr. Santiago thoroughly enjoys her work. She could never imagine finding this level of success in another field.
Looking toward the future, Dr. Santiago hopes to further develop her relationship with the hospital at the administrative level. She would love to help influence hospital policies as much as she can. She additionally hopes to maintain her work in private practice, as she acknowledges that her current role is her dream job. A member of the American Board of OB-GYN, Dr. Santiago enjoys reading, running, hiking, and performing in her spare time. For the past four years, she has found joy in singing and playing the keyboard for a local amateur band. Further, she is excited to see what the future holds with her spouse, Paulo.
