Uncle Bob!

Uncle Bob, also known as Robert “Bob” Santos, is a recognized spokesperson and leader of the movement that began in the 1970s to preserve Seattle’s Chinatown/International District. He is a second generation son of Filipino immigrant Sammy Santos and an “Indipino” (Native American /Filipino). Now an author of the recently published book, “The Gang of Four”, Santos delivered a rousing conference luncheon presentation about the importance of networking, cultivating relationships and coalition building between ethnic groups and races.

A Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care where patients have a direct relationship with their provider, who coordinates a cooperative team of healthcare professionals, takes collective responsibility for the care provided to the patient and arranges for appropriate care with other qualified providers as needed.  Your care team is your medical provider, nurse, counselor, front-desk staff and YOU.  Your care team knows you and your family to give you the best care possible.
