Meet Our Providers: Maria Chavez Santos, MD

At TrueCare, our providers are passionate about helping our patients on their health journey, so they can live the best life possible.

Meet Dr. Maria Chavez Santos! She provides primary care services at our Carlsbad location.

Dr. Santos finished the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Marathon!

Go behind the scrubs and read more fun facts about her below!

If you were a fruit, what would you be? And if you were a vegetable, which one?

I would be a coconut because it reminds me of summer, which is my favorite season! As a vegetable, I would be kale. I just love kale, especially dino kale!

Where is your favorite place to go on vacation?

The Amalfi Coast! I went with my family in the summer of 2023, and it was the most memorable trip I have been on.

What are the 3 best apps on your phone?

Instagram, Spotify, and Google Maps.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

I am a night owl by nature, but I have made myself a morning person so I can wake up early to exercise.

Tell us something about you that most people don’t know.

I danced ballet and flamenco for several years growing up, and was learning how to play violin in the last few years.
