Patient Comments (5)

I was a patient of Dr. Cruz for 9 months, starting in 2017. During this time she carried out prescribing the medication that my previous doctor had prescribed. Over the course of these 9 months, it became more and more clear to me that she was not paying attention to my condition. She requested frequent tests and consultations with other doctors, but never talked about this with me. At our last meeting, she made out my prescription to the wrong person. Overall, she was not engaged in my care.

She gave me the perfect update to my prescription and changes my meds and dosage to help me make the changes that desperately needed to be made. Yes she may seem all business at times but it is because she is asking the right questions that need to be asked.

If you want to see someone who just looks at texts messages the whole time instead of looking at you and who also asks the same questions in a row because she is not listening to your answers this is your doctor. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Left with extremely high anxiety and walked out of the office I was so offended.

I took my daughter to her and she couldn't even make eye contact with her, repeatedly asked her the same questions like she wasn't even paying attention the first time she asked. Within 15 minutes she wrote out a prescription with out much information and she didn't even ask what medications she was allergic to. I would never go back, she is extremely unprofessional.

Terrible experience with Dr Cruz. She seemed to not care about the patient, and was pre-occupied with taking a phone call, checking her emails, etc. She had no follow-up on how I was doing. The only thing she did well was bill $ for her time. I would not recommend.
