Dr. Da Cruz is the best!, March 11, 2014, 10:37 am
Reviewer: ldacruz

I had a minor procedure, removing a skin cancer, and the wound has totally disappeared. That is not the purpose here however. I have worked for Dr. Da Cruz for 9 years, and take issue with the negative review on many levels.
This lady seems to have only had a consultation, not a surgery, so how can she rate a surgery? She claims to have had a breast augmentation on Feb. 25, 2006, but Dr. Da Cruz did no surgeries on this day, a Saturday. She claims her consultation was rushed, but you could talk to any of Dr. Da Cruz's patients who would tell you otherwise. We have many comments echoing the positive review, that Dr. Da Cruz is very kind, thorough, and patient, answering all questions. I have observed this in my years working with this awesome human being. She cites three ladies who had serious problems, but I cannot match any of our clients in that time frame. It seems the whole point of her review is to promote Dr. Rivera, who was the new kid on the block in 2006, operating out of UNIBE, a small poorly equipped facility in Tibas.
We have requested Make Me Heal to remove this obviously false report but they do not respond to us.
There is no medical procedure to check that fits my procedure. Not a lumpectomy, but cancer related.

I plan to return to Dr. da Cruz , August 6, 2006, 2:44 pm
Reviewer: CindyinFla

I had a TT and lipo in June. I sent pictures and a lot of info going through email. We arranged the surgery and recovery spa (Las Cumbres - also great). I stayed overnight at the hospital and saw him frequently, even on weekends, for the next 2 weeks.
I have and will continue to recommend Dr. da Cruz and plan to have some other work done next summer by him.
I also have not had any of the "horror story" problems listed on these pages. My scar, 2 mo PO, looks very good. All questions are still answered quickly by email and his office staff is the best.
About half the patients at Las Cumbres used Dr. da Cruz and everyone was thrilled with the results, after-care, and healing process.
I told him I wanted a flat stomach and a waistline - I got both. I love Dr. da Cruz.

If anyone is considering having plastic surgery in Costa Rica, you can scratch this surgeon out of your list and with good reasons. I had a consultation with this doctor and immediately I realized I wanted to leave the office. He is so busy he has no time to consult with you about your surgery, you tell him what you are interested and he will tell you what he will do and send you home, yes! no more questions and your opinions or questions he has no time for....you will have to just let him do what he wants and he promises to make it right. WRONG!!!!
I stayed with 4 other ladies which 3 of them had surgery with him and I felt so bad for them. They all looked horrible and a week after surgery they were still in pain, could not sleep and kept complaining. They were so dissapointed and sad they did not know much about him until after surgery. We stayed 3 weeks in the same place and one of them got so sick she had to be transfered to another hospital to recover. If you are picking a surgeon, make sure he is not so well known or too busy for you and if you notice him constantly looking at his watch and acting like he needs to go then you just leave and do NOT do anything with them because there is a good chance the surgery may not be good. These ladies regreted what they did. They have to come back for more procedures but they are not going back to Dr. Da Cruz Dos Santos, they are going to a clinic called; Clinica Unibe where Dr. Christian Rivera Paniagua an EXCELLENT surgeon will fix them up! you can read about Dr. Christian Rivera Paniagua from the arrivacostarica.com website, he uses the LATEST MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY and he will take the necessary time with you upon consultation and answer any of your questions gracefully, you will come out feeling not only good about your decision but knowledgeable about the science of any of the procedures you are interested in. Dr. Rivera actually did my surgery in which I will explain in a positive message board here so you'll get an idea of how wonderful he is.If you have any questions that I can answer, feel free to email me at mrodz1@msn.com
I stayed for a month and I can give you a list of my doctors and the good ones here in Costa Rica.
