Patient Comments (1)
in Katy, TX |
Being a patient of Dr.Cruz was extremely frustrating to say the least. Every appointment takes at least 2 hours, and if you need a refill on prescriptions, be prepared to wait days. Don't bother calling the FULLY STAFFED office, you won't get an answer, I didn't for four days and had to eventually drive to the office. Time to find a new physisian who's more professional, with more competent staff.
