What People Say About Dr. Edwin Cruz, MD

I was referred to him for the possibility OF M. S. suspected by my two neurologists and a long history of the possibile illness. He was so abrupt and intimidating that I could barely speak! (RARE) He asked why I was there. I explained my symptoms and asked if he looked at my chart. He repeated, why are you here?! I said because I was referred to you and want to reach a definitive diagnosis. He said I don't know why you were referred to me! You've wasted my time and walked out in less than 5 min.

I came to Dr. Cruz because I have partial seizures. I needed to change medications because after a time they don't work anymore. I wanted to know how to change to a different medication and he told me to just quit taking the medication. I went to his office because I was having symptoms. He told me I was hostile because I was crying. He said he doesn't know what I want from him because there's nothing that can be done for me. He said to go to an internist to see what's wrong with me.

My fiance was admitted in the local hospital for seizures and strokes. She was terrified. After an extensive testing process we were told she was having Non epileptic seizures . We walked into DR. Cruz office for results of his test and he would not let us speak or answer any question. He would speak and we would listen. When my fiance started to cry because all she wanted was information he informed her(the patient) she was being unprofessional and showed us the door. Because she cried.
