Specialties

Dr. Leonard L Cruz has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Arrogant and Unethical

I called Dr. Cruz's office 3 days ago for an appointment to help me straighten out my medication situation for depression. I was asked whether I had any addictions and then told I would be called back to let me know if I would be a good fit for this practice. Whaaaaa? How can they make that assessment by asking me one question? I foolishly waited for a call back and never received one. How arrogant and unethical that this practice didn't even give me the courtesy to call me back. You clearly don't care about people unless they seem interesting and if not, you don't call them back. I need psychiatric care! I wouldn't go there if my life depended on it!

Life saver

Dr. Cruz is without a doubt one of the best Docs I have ever seen. He is the only one that did not think that I was crazy and has helped me more than he even realizes. When the other doctors were rude and told me I needed to spend time with a mental health care provider that there was "nothing wrong with me." He was the one that assured me that there was something wrong and it was not that I was crazy. If you need this kind of help please seek this provider out. He has saved my life.
