Michael – Jun 27, 2018
I've been coming to Dr. Cruz for several years because of his professionalism, knowledge, and "bedside manner." I've had several spots which concerned me; each time he determined the spot was benign or removed it and checked for melanoma. Finally, even though I'm a native English speaker, I was impressed to find out that he is the only Spanish-speaking dermatologist in central Ohio, so he treats many Hispanics in his practice.

Carol House in Marengo, OH – Apr 07, 2017
Dr. Cruz is a Magician ?? He not only diagnose skin issues right away but also prescribe medication as per age and skin type and allergies. I never have to use his medication after few applications and once my daughter caught some eczima from swimming, it was vanished after first usage ?? I recommended several of my friends to Dr. Cruz and they had radiant acne free skin! 10/10 for him. Thanks and Best Regards, Amber & Fatima (my daughter)

Amber Aziz in Dublin, OH – Apr 06, 2017
My husband has been seeing Dr> Cruz for about 4 or 5 years. He has invariably been attentive to my husband's problems, listening and making very practical suggestions. He has explained the procedures that he proposed, both in terms of why they were needed and what they entailed. Also I found that my husband tended to respond in kind to Dr. Cruz's dynamic personality.

Anne Essenhigh for Robert Essenhigh in Columbus, OH – Apr 06, 2017
I have been treated by Dr. Cruz since 2006. Dr. Cruz has been extremely professional in all aspects of his practice. His support personnel are also very professional. I spent 30+ years as an Officer in the US Army and was treated by more doctors than I care to remember. Dr. Cruz not only is far above those doctors, but one of his first diagnosis was a cancerous spot on my chest he removed that several military Dermatology doctors dismissed.

Crystal M in Columbus, OH – Aug 17, 2016
I have been his patient for a number of years. He talks with you and not at you. He does an excellent job of trying to educate you on identifying what you should worry about and what you shouldn't. He gives you the confidence to know when you should come in and get something checked. If he has any question at all about a spot, he does the biopsy. He has a great "bedside manner". You get to the examining room promptly and are seen by Dr. Cruz promptly. I highly recommend him.

DL in Grove City, OH – Aug 15, 2016
Dr. Cruz himself was nice enough but seemed like he couldn't wait to get out of the room. He spent maybe a total of five minutes with me and seemed to be in such a rush I didn't even bother asking him more than two of my questions. He remove a mole from my leg which did turn out to be mildly abnormal. But, they didn't apply enough bandaging and my pant leg was soaked through with blood before I could even finish checking out. Will be going to another dermatologist next time.
