What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Cross, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Cross is excellent. I searched for someone to help diagnose and treat some symptoms I was having for years. Ten minutes into my appointment with Dr. Cross he not only diagnosed me, but also gave me a plan on what to do next and how to get better. It was the first time I felt heard, confident, and comfortable! The wait time for his office was minimal, everyone in his office was professional and friendly. I highly recommend him!

In the midst of my health whirlwind, I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Cross as the attending neurologist in the ER 7 years ago, and have been seeing him ever since. Even with moving back to Orlando, being in his care and the care of his office staff, especially Ivonne and Miguel, it's absolutely worth the 4 hour commute. You don't find many doctors like Dr. Cross or a team of people that genuinely care about your well-being the way they do. He always listens, addresses your concerns, and doesn't rush you out the door. Here, you're not just a number. If you're looking for a group that works well together, truly cares, and always goes the extra mile...then look no further. I highly recommend this neurologist and this practice to anyone needing wholehearted advocates on their side.

Dr. Cross is an excellent doctor, very knowledgeable and sweet. He took his time and is very extensive with the office visit. I was seen last minute, office staff was excellent in bringing me on a last minute cancellation.

This doctor and his staff will take care of you. From the moment you are greeted when you walk in, through the consultation with the doctor, and finally during the checkout with everything you need - including next appointment and prescription - this office shows care, friendliness, and professionalism toward you. It is a nice office too, and you will go through your appointment and leave in better mental condition than when you arrived, a rare thing these days!

Dr Cross is a wonderful, considerate, and compassionate physician. He’s been treating me for 5 years for a difficult neurological problem and he’s always patient and thinking of next steps to treat my condition. There’s not many doctors I would leave a review for, but he’s one of them. Thank you Dr Cross :)

Dr. Cross is the definition of medical professionalism. He is extremely knowledgeable and his dedication to his patients is evident in his everyday practice. It is obvious he truly cares about treating the person as a whole, rather than just addressing the person's symptoms. He has a great bedside manner, takes time to explain the condition to the patient and is respectful of his patient's concerns and time. The staff is great, very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!

I have severe vertigo and went to several doctors that could not figure out what was wrong with me. Dr. Cross was the only one that was able to find out what was causing my issue. His bed side manner is amazing!!! He's the only Dr. I would recommend. My whole family now uses him as he's truly a phenomenal Dr and person!!!

Dr. Cross is a compassionate, kind, knowledgeable physcian who does not judge but treats each patient with dignity. The time he takes to listen and develop a great treatment plan is rare. I absolutely love Dr. Cross and his staff. Ronda A. Vangates, Esq.

Attempted to make appointment (09/01/16) for my wife after referral from our cardio Dr. ref. extreme pain and loss of mobility in her right hand and forearm. Woman who answered curt, impatient and not listening. When I was about to provide the necessary insurance info she said she was not "ready" and would call me back. Never heard from her again. Totally uncaring, unprofessional and inconsiderate Dr's office. Always felt "bad news" staff is a "bad news" Doctor. Would give him no star if I could
