15/04/10 1 1 2 2 Office staff was terrible. Unfriendly and incompetent. They scheduled an appointment for an U/S even though U/S tech. did not get there for another hour. Front desk staff spoke spanish to me and around me even though I am cleary not hispanic. For the second appointment, the staff called the afternoon before to cancel the appointment, but weren't flexible on rescheduling the appointment. This office sucks!!

06/01/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Valdescruz is the best obstetrician. He delivered all 4 of my kids, the last being twins. He took very good care of me, especially in the twin preg. seeing that it was high risk. Eight days fter the birth I was readmitted to the hospital with a blood clot. He was my attending physician even though it had nothing to do with pregancy. He spent hours researching my case, visited me of his off days and even called me directly from home to my hospital room at 9:30 at night to discuss some options. I would recommend him to anyone. He truly is the best.  Respond

14/03/07 5 5 5 He saved my life 13 years ago when I had a severe miscarriage and my current-then midwife ignored me. As a new doctor then he was very thorough. Also saved a friend's life who opted for natural childbirth after a C section- saved baby's life and mom's. GREAT DOCTOR, GREAT Manner, GREAT care!!!

09/08/06 5 5 5 Hello everyone, I would like to inform you about Dr.Valdescruz, he is the best gynecologist i have ever met. He saved my life, I had a polyp which was precancerous. He told me that i had to have it out. He explained to me very profesionally everything that was going to happen and was very concern. He told me that i was going to be ok, and i am happy to say that Im doing great. No more problems, and I was the type that bleeded very much during my periods. It was so bad that i had to carry clothes with me to all places i went. This doctor is awsome. I have never heard anybody that i know say other than that. I recommend him very highly, he is also very nice and sweet. I never have to wait to long when i go to his office.

23/02/06 5 5 5 This doctor was wonderful in my experience. He was always very attentive and informative. I'm surprised he would let anyone labor for very long, because he was very aggressive when discussing a possible c section if I didn't dialate. Fortunately, after being induced my labor progressed so quickly I didnt have time to get any epidural. He was wonderful and I would recommend him.

04/11/05 1 1 1 This was the worst experience of my life. I labored for almost 4 days with my daughter under his care.he also sent me home with a perscription for a sleeping pill on of those days. My daughter went into fetal distress and I had to have an emergency c-section which is partner preformed becasue he was no longer on call. His partner was great but I would never refer this doctor for anyone.
