Patient Comments (1)
in Omaha, NE |
Dr Cruz is a genuine knowledgeable doctor. I took my father-in-law here, who does not like doctors. Dr Cruz took his time with us and explained everything in a way so that we were able to understand. My father-in-law would not admit it, but I think he was pleased with Cruz. He didn't complain, so that was a good sign.
