Dr. De La Cruz is an excellent physician. She is not only an exceptional surgeon, she is also very compassionate.
I recently had a concern about a post-operative situation with the first breast reconstruction procedure Dr. De La Cruz performed on me in June 2016. The nurse practitioner (Amy) in the office assisted me on the phone and scheduled a visit with Dr. De La Cruz two days later. Dr. De La Cruz was very attentive to my concerns and provided support for my second procedure which will occur in November.
always very friendly and helpful.
she is wonderful
Dr. De La Cruz and her staff were exceptional, I couldn't have had a better experience with them.
I am very happy with my choice of surgeon. I am pleased with all aspects of my care during this stressful time. The office is friendly and my calls are promptly returned. I had a fever after surgery and had to go to the emergency room to be checked out and the doctor responded to my situation very quickly. I was very frightened but knew I was going to be OK because of my doctor.

Dr. De La Cruz is a specialty doctor (plastic surgeon) who performed a lymphovenous bypass on my arm that has lymphedema in October 2015. This visit was a follow-up appointment to evaluate my arm. She and all of her staff are fantastic!
Dr. De La Cruz is a wonderful caring doctor and a very good plastic surgeon.
I just want to say I feel Dr. De La Cruz went above and beyond care during my recent visit. I had some other health concerns she was not able to address but she was able to get me a referral for the correct provider and I was able to be seen. I feel like such a priority with Dr. De La Cruz and her staff. Thank you.
