Victoria Cruz, PA-C is AMAZING! I've never experienced someone like her in the mental health field. She listens and addresses all of my concerns, works with me until we figure out what medicine/dose is going to work best for me. She's kind, does not make you feel rushed, does not show arrogance, and does not talk down to me. I love how she doesn't make me feel uncomfortable or ashamed when I ask if we can try something else, switch medicine, or change doses. I also love that I can communicate with her via the portal, she replies quick and will address whatever the request/issue/inquiry is. I have never experienced this at any other office.... Read More +

We Need More Providers Like Her!

Victoria is honestly one of the best providers I've ever had. She really takes the time to listen and explain things in a way that makes sense. She values patient care and goes above and beyond for her patients. With Victoria I feel validated with the things that I say and in a mental health field where us as patients are the most vulnerable, I can tell she really cares. We need more providers like her!

So I usually don’t leave reviews but I also haven’t had a Doctor/Specialist as amazing as Victoria. I’ve seen specialists in the past for depression and ADD. I always felt like I didn’t really matter. I was just the next patient in line to be called. Then I moved to Florida to help care for my elderly mother who unfortunately passed away. It was something I couldn’t deal with and I fell into a dark hole (no I did not turn to drugs or alcohol). I fell into a deep depression. I isolated myself from everyone including family. I had to leave work for a month because my heart was not in it to care for patients the way I needed too. How could my heart be in it when I fell like it was shattered into pieces. I knew at that point I needed to seek professional help. I made an appointment with a specialist not knowing who I was going to get and if they could even help me. On May 6th 2023 I had my first appointment with Victoria. I cried the whole time while feeling embarrassed at first for not having control of my emotions. That feeling quickly faded as I started to talk to her more. Not only was she caring and compassionate, she listened to every word . Not only did she care about my situation we got on the subject of my daughter who was also struggling with depression. She showed a great deal of concern while giving me advice as to go about helping her and guiding her in the right direction. I knew at that moment I was finally going to get the help that I needed. Today I cannot thank Victoria enough for the help she had provided me and express how much my life has changed in such a short period of time. I strongly recommend anyone needing the best Doctor/Specialist out there that you schedule an appointment with Victoria Cruz! I can not Thank you for everything you have done for me Victoria. God Bless you❤️... Read More +
