Patient Comments (42)
in Hilliard, OH |
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.

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)

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.

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.
in Columbus, OH |
Dr. Cruz was professional and his expertise was outstanding. His staff was polite and knowledgeable. I would DEFINATELY recommend him for any of your dermatology needs.
in Grove City, OH |
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.
Marysville, OH |
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.
in Columbus, OH |
An excellent physician with a great bedside manor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cruz's for almost ten years. At every appointment Dr. Cruz takes the time to explain to me what he is looking for and what I need to continue to look for and watch. When he does need to do more he calls and explains what he has found and the procedure. If I have questions he calls me right away to answer them.

in Dublin, OH |
Dr. Cruz was very regardful! He explained me very well what possibly diseases I had, and what exams we would do to confirm them or not. After my diagnosis was made, again, he took the time to explain me what actions we could take, trying to use not very technical terms in order to make me understand how each pill/drug would help my body, as well as the cons effects. He responded any doubt I had with confidence. My overall experience was excellent , therefore I highly recommend him! :)

Dr. Cruz has been caring for me and my family for over 10 years. Both my daughter and I have a history of skin cancer. Dr. Cruz has been responsive, professional and, above all, caring. He's an excellent physician as well. Having had less than satisfactory experiences with other Dermatologists in the area I can heartily recommend him without reservation.
in Columbus, OH |
Throughout all my visits, Dr. Cruz has been a caring professional friend. While very efficient, he takes time to listen and provides helpful advice as he and his staff conduct each examination. Although he is busy, he always has time to listen to concerns, and responds to each and every one with clarity and when needed, reassurance. While i don't look forward to visiting ANY medical facility, Dr. Cruz and his staff provide a warm and friendly environment in which to receive treatment.

Julio Cruz, MD is an amazing Dermatologist! He is also a Pathologist, which makes me trust him even more. I have been going to him for 10 years. He was able to diagnosis my daughter when 3 other doctors couldn't. His office staff is friendly and efficient! I never wait more than 10 minutes in his waiting room, or in an exam room. His office runs like a well oiled machine. I refer all of my family and friends to him, and I hope he never retires!!
