in Metairie, LA |
Dr. Cruz is the best doctor I have every had and I have had many. He listens to everything you have to say. He is efficient and thorough. His office is run like a well oiled machine. I would and have gone to Dr. Reginelli, Dr. Fox and Dr. Cruz Jr. other doctor in his office and find all of them excellent. Short wait time and many other reasons I would reccomend Dr. Cruz.
