I love Dr. De La cruz, I had my surgery in 2013. I worked with Jennifer and Regina and they were always very helpful over the phone and advised me and listened to me and what I had to do. The staff has changed and now you can't even get the LPN over the phone, before you couldn't get the doctor but Jennifer or Regina was always available for your concerns. Now the LPN is too busy and would like for you to make an appt to discuss your issue. It's frustrating to say the least.
