Love this Dr and have full confidence in her after having my 2nd colonoscopy, My first with her, my prior one was in NY. Dr Cruz was there to answer any questions I had after removing a very large polyp, which she had to cortorize, I developed minor complications, and required antibiotics and further tests, however nothing was wrong, and by a few weeks and back to a slow normal diet I was back to normal. I trust this Dr completely, and highly recommend her.

I have been a patient of Dr Liz Cruz for about 1 year. I had a colonoscopy with her last year, and unfortunately do to the large polup she had to remove and cortorize I developed some minor complications. However she was there to answer any questions that my husband and I had. Thankfully after a couple of weeks and finally being able to eat solid foods I was back to myself. I have another appointment with her next week, and a rescheduled appointment for another colonoscopy. Thumbs up Dr. C.

Love this Dr. She is kind and has a personality. She will listen to you to find out your pains not just tell you her thoughts. I wish all my Dr.s where like her.

I wanted to make an appointment with Dr Cruz but was only able to get in to see the nurse practitioner. She was not very interested in my history and was rushed. I met Dr. Cruz less than 5 minutes prior to being put under for two procedures. The results of the procedures were given to me by the nurse practitioner and again she was rushed. I have issues with IBS and she never gave me any guidance other than writing prescriptions.
Jen, sorry you did not have a good experience with our office. We pride ourselves in taking great care of our patients. Dr. Cruz along with her Nurse Practitioner Maureen are extremely thorough and caring. I'm sorry that didn't come through in your apts. In addition, we offer a whole wellness approach that was available to you while you were in the office. It's worked miracles for people suffering from IBS. Please contact me if you'd like to learn more, 623-772-6999 x102. Thank you! Tina
