out of town patients

For those out-of-town clients coming to visit Dr. Emmanuel De La Cruz, the closest airport is the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). The Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is within 23 miles of our office (approximately 30 minutes.)

Out-of-town patients will need to have a friend or relative with them to take them to and from their surgery, stay the night with them the first night after surgery.  Dr. De La Cruz and his staff will visit you at your hotel the day after surgery to ensure that you continue to do well after your procedure. If a patient is traveling alone, we can help arrange for a nurse or caretaker to help with this.
