I was very pleased with Dr Cruz and his staff. They are very friendly and you are not just a number to them like in some offices. I had no wait time and all answers were explained to me very well. He made all referrals and recommendations and options available to me. I would highly recommend him as I already have.

I have found Dr. Cruz to be very thorough, professional, and caring. I am grateful that when I was in need of a Neurologist and being new to this area and not knowing any, Dr. Helion Cruz was recommended to me. I feel very confident in naming Dr. Cruz as my Neurologist.

DR. CRUZ IS A GREAT DOCTOR HE TAKE THE TIME TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT WHATS GOING ON AND HE LOOKS TO SEE WHAT HE CAN DO TO HELP WITH YOUR PROBLEM.. HE GOT TO MY PROBLEM THAT I HAVE HAD FOR YEARS WITH IN TWO VISITS. I HAVE SEEN COUNTLESS DOCTORS. HE IS A VERY GOOD DOCTOR.
Dr. Cruz is thorough and takes the time to fully address your concerns. He talks in "layman's" terms. His office staff is also very professional.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!

I do not recommend Dr. Cruz to anyone! The entire appointment he spent his time on the computer, barely even looking at me. I have been suffering with headaches for years and was excited to finally see a neurologist. I'm so disappointed in the way he treated me. Came in for an EMG and he rushed the entire process. When I asked a quick question before he left the room he just looked at his tech to answer and left. I will not be going back. Find a compassionate neurologist who CARES!

This place is a joke and not a funny one. Never got to see Dr. Cruz himself saw Chris told him I had been in pain none stop for two months waiting to get in to see him and that I needed some answers. He sent me for test and seven days later I'm still being told he hasn't had time to review them and will get back to me !!!!!!!!!!!!
