Specialties

Dr. Antonio Cruz has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

He is a hidden Gem in the suburbs

I am 44 years old Asian male and I have had coronory artery decease apparently for long time without my knowledge or obvious symptoms. I was a non-smoker and non-alcoholic and vegetarian all my life with a moderate lifestyle. I went to see my primary care physician Dr. Antonio Cruz for a routine visit. He did a thorough check up on me and talked to me about my family history and suspected about my heart condition and promptly referred to me to Dr. Artur Nazarian, who is an excellent cardiologist (Also a student of Dr. Cruz!) Dr. Nazarian did an angiogram and told me that I have to go for a quaruple by-pass in 3 days! I had 4 arteries with more than 95% blocks and the 5th with over 45% blocked! I was that advanced in the decease without even a small symptom. If it was not for Dr. Cruz's recommendation, I would have ignored it and I would have had a fatal heart attack. This was told by my cardiologist Dr. Nazarian himself, who commented that if I did not see Dr.Cruz, I would have been dead in about 3 months! Dr. Antonio Cruz literally saved my life. He diagonosed my coronory artery decease before any equipment or doctor could diagonize. That saved my life. Thank you Dr. Cruz! I am fortunate to have found you. You are a beacon of ethics and principles where medical practice is merely a business to make money with human bodies.

A real life saver Doctor.

I've known Dr.Cruz for over 25 years. He has saved my life 2 times!! If it were not for him, I would not be here today to write this. Two other doctors at work/customers told me "No problem!" including 3 EMT's. They were ALL wrong, and Dr.Cruz took the time to see me without an appointment just to make sure I was all right. He was correct and they were not. Fantastic doctor who is easy to talk to and listens to everything you have to say. Thank you, Doctor, for saving my life.
