Doctor Claribel Cruz remembers going to her father’s clinic as a child and seeing how his patients regarded him as family. It inspired her to pursue a career in medicine, and today she is a primary care physician. What she enjoys most about her work is healing her patients’ physical ailments as well as their social and psychological needs. “I help my patients live happy, healthy golden years,” says Dr. Cruz. “Education is key. Once patients understand their ailments they can help decrease disease progression.” Dr. Cruz and her husband have two children. She likes spending time with her family, cooking, going to the beach and traveling. She enjoyed visiting Italy and would love to go to Greece.
