Why is this doctor waiting tables?

NEW BERLIN – A local physician is going from operating tables to waiting on them this weekend at New York Pizzeria, all in the hopes of finding a cure for cancer.



Bring an appetite from 3 p.m. to close Sunday at New York Pizzeria in downtown New Berlin as Norwich Emergency Medicine Dr. Thomas Cruz takes your order and serves up the meals.

Dr. Cruz’ Sunday shift at the local eatery is a preliminary fundraiser for the St. Balrdick’s head-shaving event next weekend in Norwich.
