Dr was very rude and condescending. I would never recommend him to anyone.
Birmingham, AL |
Dr. Cruz basically put my mom through unnecessary pain and suffering, I guess either to practice the science of it, or to just bill insurance. She had a brain tumor that should have just took its course, but instead, Dr. Cruz inhumanly did brain surgery and she underwent chemo and radiation. This was all INHUMANE! Also, the way he and his colleague, Dr. Jestus treated my father was very wrong and unprofessional. I do not and would not ever recommend anyone to see either of them!

I found Dr. Rodriguez-Cruz to be an excellent physician - very thorough in determining the probable cause of my physical problem and an effective communicator. I highly recommend him for neurological issues.
