    I would recommend Dr. J. Cruz to anyone with the highest praise for his professionalism, knowledge of his area of medicine with ability to explain or discus to whatever extent one needs or desires, and also for his ability to interact with empathy, kindness and interest, never giving the impression he must rush on to the next patient.

    I have been seeing Dr. Cruz since 2004 when he removed a melanoma from my back. He is very friendly, compassionate, and thorough. He tells the facts like it is, but with a compassionate, attitude and always has a smile. Staff is very friendly also.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Cruz's for almost ten years. At every appointment Dr. Cruz takes the time to explain to me what he is looking for and what I need to continue to look for and watch. When he does need to do more he calls and explains what he has found and the procedure. If I have questions he calls me right away to answer them. I have been very pleased with his compassion and knowledge over the years!

    Dr. Cruz provides his patients with excellent care but most importantly he provides us with educational information so we can be advocates for our own health. He lets us know the things we should be looking for and encourages us to call if we have any concerns or questions.
