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.
in Agoura Hills, CA |
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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
