Through Dr. Cruz's professional care I believe that I was given these past five years that may have been taken from me if not for him. His diagnosis and surgical skills were a God send for me. His pleasant personality lets you know that you are not just a patient, but someone he is really interested in providing to you a service of care. I would highly recommend Dr. Cruz.

My last visit with Dr. Cruz was like all of my previous visits with The Surgery Associates they are very consistent I have been treated extremely well by all personal especially Dr. Cruz he was very interested in my reason for being in his office and took the time to talk to me about it. This is my 9th year and I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Cruz and his staff. If asked I would highly recommend Dr. Cruz as a surgeon based on my surgery results and follow up care since.

My husband and I have both used Dr.Cruz for different vascular issues. We were so impressed, not just with the way he approached our treatment, but also with how easy he was to talk to and how open he was to our questions. We now go back for yearly check-ups so he can make sure we’re maintaining our vascular health. He and his staff always treat us like we’re the most important patients they have. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Cruz, as well as his office and nurses are excellent in their caring for your needs. They are very knowledgeable in their medical care and are just wonderful in making sure you are relaxed while doing the examination. The office staff is ready to take care of appointments, insurance, and make you realize you are special. In our last visit, we were there for a 3 year checkup following surgery for carotid artery. We were thrilled with the results from the surgery. If you need super excellent care by caring medical persons and you are not getting it from your present situation, you are working way to hard for the results - call Dr. Cruz.
