I am very pleased with my treatment from Dr. Cruz Jr. My condition improved significantly after being treated by him. Very knowledgeable and thorough. Takes the time to talk to you but more important, he listens to what you say.

How or why this man became a doctor I'll never know. He treated my dying mother like a dog. Never found him friendly or caring. When My mom was admitted to hospital for last time he didn't come to see her one time,leaving the dirty work to others. I consider him a coward. His office staff is quite rude... guess that's what happens when you work for a jerk like him.
