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 !!!!!!!!!!!!
