in Casselberry, Florida |
Dr. Cruz has been my primary care physician for the past 20 years! He is very attentive, patient and compassionate. Likewise, his staff is very efficient, kind and helpful. I highly recommend anyone looking for a trustworthy and realiable group to visit Dr. Cruz and his wonderful staff!
in Orlando, FL |
Dr. Cruz has been my internist since 2002. He has taken excellent care of me in his office and in the hospital. He is very caring and will immediately call in physicians from other expertise if needed to completely balance out your care. He is very knowledgeable and excellent at diagnosing issues. I am able to be direct with him and ask questions if needed and he more than happily responds and provides all the information I need. He is more of an old school doctor which is great!!!!
orlando, fl |
The office staff was very professional and caring. Dr. Cruz listened to all my concerns and ordered all the necessary tests to diagnose my health issues. I was called back as soon as the results were returned and returned for a consultation about the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Cruz and his office staff.

They should take the Dr away from his name.This man was by far the worst Dr experience I've ever had.He took over two weeks to give me a referral for a colonoscopy with serious health conditions I had going on.He also refused to give a referral for an mri telling me an orthopedic surgeon had to make the referral. The orthopedic surgeons can't see me without an mri.catch 22! this guys ridiculous, couldn't grasp this. He takes days, weeks to respond. He could care less about his patients. Don't go
I'm sorry you had a bad experience. We've been in business 18 years, we serve hundreds of patients every month, and we strive to create the best possible primary care experience for the community. We appreciate your feedback and we understand that the way insurances work is confusing and frustrating but with open communication all can be resolved.
Orlando, FL |
This guy didn't listen to patient's narrative or symptoms. Also, he minimized the suffering of the patient. He was clearly out of his league for medical competence as he could not even offer symptomatic relief. Pretty poor compassion and terrible bedside manner. Won't suggest him at all!
Winter Springs, FL |
First impression means everything - not a good one
in Apopka, Florida |
Dr. Cruz has been my Family Doctor for approximately 8 years now. He is not only a very qualified Doctor but also a quality man. He has kept me as healthy as I can be through the years. Always wanting to know how I am feeling and providing the appropriate medical treatment or prescription. It is my honor and blessing to have such a knowledgeable and caring doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Cruz as your family doctor. The entire staff is amazing ( courteous, caring , + competent )
in Winter Park, FL |
"EXCELLENT". I trust him with my life. After interviewing many Doctors, (having one Family Doctor over 25 years) Dr. Cruz is caring, asks your history and Family history and is the best diagnostic I have met. In Central Florida. Bravo to his staff who make you feel like you are his only patient.
in Winter Springs |
Harvard Medical School has indicated that savings and quality improvement are generated much more often by independent primary-care doctors than by large hospital -centric health systems and this is why a chose Dr. Cruz. Dr. Cruz knows who I am and the quality of care that I get here can not compare to any where else.
