We have been seeing Dr. Cruz since my second daughter was born 13mo ago. She has been such a pleasure! My 3 year old actually loves going to the Doctor now! The staff are all very friendly, welcoming, and good to my kids. With scheduling they always do their best to be accommodating to my working mom schedule. I’m happy to recommend VB Pediatrics for your kiddos!

My 4 children are very well taken care of! Both Dr. Cruz and Dr. Wije take time to listen to parents questions and concerns and go above and beyond to make sure the kids and parents are happy.
Camille Cappelen
Dr. Cruz and Dr. Wije make a great team. Dr. Wije delivered my two sons, and I will be forever grateful for the incredible attention he gave my first born who arrived 8 weeks early. Dr. Wije literally saved his life with his detection of heart issues in those first few scary days, and arranged a speedy and expert treatment plan and all turned out great.
