Lake Saint Louis, MO |
After taking my son to doctor Cruz for the past 6 months, he has shown me exactly what I am not looking for in a medical professional. His lack of bedside manner is matched by his level of class, tact. He told me “I could give a dog just as thorough exam” referring to my 14 month old. I wouldn’t refer an enemy to this careless, heartless “professional”.

took my daughter to Dr Cruz for her yearly check up and was given a prescription for new glasses, the prescription was wrong, had to go back to see the dr and was billed for it again even though the dr messed up the prescription. my daughter will not be going back to see this Dr ever again.

This provider is not recommended!!! He walked in after a resident examined my child and told us that he was fine when our eye doctor sent us there immediately for an eye wound that was not healing. He wasn't even going to look at our child's eye until I asked him to, when he looked he said "ppsshhh...I don't even see anything at all" to which my husband replied" please look in the left eye as that is why we are here". We were then referred to Mercy Children's and had a much better experience.

I would not recommend Dr. Cruz. He spent less than 5 minutes examining my child and did absolutely nothing in terms of treatment. He was very short with me and his bedside manner is poor to say the least.
