Dr. De La Cruz and her team members are extremely caring and knowledgeable. I've had problems with fluid collecting in my back from lat Doris flap procedure and she and her team members continue to give me top notch care. Thank you Dr. De La Cruz!

Dr. De La Cruz has always given me the very best care. I now go for yearly follow ups after my surgery. She is still as attentive as ever and makes me feel comfortable at the visit. She is a very caring doctor.

Dr. De La Cruz is a perfect example of what all healthcare providers should be. She's non-judgmental, caring, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable. I wish she could be my doctor for everything.

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.
