I have been seeing Dr Cruz for over 7 years. I have always been pleased with her skills. She has gotten me samples of medication that my insurance wouldn't cover and a referral to another specialist. I can't imagine seeing anyone else. When you leave your appointment you have your next appointment and order for tests. That dies not always happen with other doctors.
