I seldom see him, but his PA is very good. I cannot find a Patient Portal to communicate with him and get a prescription. When I call his office I am immediately sent to an answering machine. When I leave a message it is never answered. I may seek another emdocrinologist.

Dr cruz is awesome. He was the only dr out of 3 that did a thorough test to see what my thyroid was doing. He had it under control for 4 yrs. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Cruz always takes his time to explain the results of my A1C results to me. He is always personable and patient and explains effects of any new medications he may prescribe to me. I've been going to Dr. Cruz for almost 20 years and highly recommend him as an endocrinologist.

I’m a pre-diabetic patient that has been seeing Dr. Cruz for years. Thanks to his excellent care I’ve been able to control my sugars. Dr. Cruz takes care of his patients and takes the time to hear out concerns. I highly recommend him and his office as his staff is very helpful as well.

I appreciate Dr. Cruz taking the time to talk to me. Some doctors I have gone to are a production line, asking the same questions and not listening to your response. Dr. Cruz asks you a question and then listens to your response. He then discusses what you might do to fix the problem. He takes the time to understand what you are doing and helps guide you to other options in taking care of your condition.
