His lack of caring and getting to the root of the problem led to other chronic health problems. Please, find ANY other neurologist!

This man is the lone game in town and gave no scientific explanations nor decent questions during his brief exam. His bedside manner is shockingly worse than I had been warned about. Little interest in patient concerns. Search elsewhere.

Dr. Delacruz seemed caring at first. He asked questions that dealt with how the patient was doing. Patient felt there was a sense of communication with him. As time went on, he began to talk about the use of steroids to treat the condition. Patient did a lot of research, including talking with patients around the country to talk about their experiences with corticosteroid use. The feedback was negative. On next appointment, Dr. Delacruz refused to treat me because of my decision not to.
