Dr cruiz is an interesting mix. Shes really nice and caring with an actually rathet exceptional knowledge of medication being very aware of dosing intracies with a relativey cautious approach. On that part where many other doctors fail, shes great. The caveat is that her staff and bookkeeping are entirely disorganized. Scheduled electronic appointments dont seem to get shown to her and shes almost always very late to them. I've also had the staff charge me the copay for a scheduled appointment that I missed though they fixed it quickly. I love her but just consider if that's the kind of doctor you need.
