Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Ortiz Cruz is very knowledgeable and thorough. She listened to my concerns and before we ran any tests, she explained what she was looking for and when the results came back she explained everything in a way that I could explain to my family. And, she never left me sitting and waiting for her. Always on time! Highly recommend her!!

My special needs son had been sick for several months and we took him to several Dr's who just treated him for the problem he had at the time, but Dr. Ortiz Cruz took the special interest in him to run extra tests which showed that he has Lymphoma. We are very thankful for her and her devotion to my son and her other patients. She is always available by phone when we have a question and we have no problem scheduling appointments. I highly recommend her!!!

Dr. Cruz I have reservations about her,she lead my,myself,and my husband to believe my son was well enough to go through a bone marrow transplant,we trust3d her,took her word for value,along with Dr. Costas at Billings cancer center,in Charleston Sv,in 2013 my son went through the transplant adviced by dr.Cruz..my son was giving wrong bone marrow, they knew it wasn't a match,but yet gave him the transplant and studied him as he died,didnt inform us,until it was hours before he was to die.
