It is too early to assign an overall rating as I have not had time to see if the treatment works. I was there to get my medical issues properly addressed, so I can't really give an overall rating until Iknow if that was done. To me timeliness is included in bedside manner as it is part of the overall experience. This patient has more to do in life than sit and wait for doctors, as my time is of value. The doctor himself was patient, courteous and appeared knowledgeable.

Over the years I've had my share of sports injuries and, as I've gotten older, I have experienced joint replacements, torn tendons and aches and pains from arthritis. Dr. Velazquez is the best Sports Medicine physician I have seen regardingdiagnosis and immediate treatment of my activity related injuries. He keeps me on the golf course two or three days a week and relatively pain free. Pretty good for a guy in his seventh decade. Thanks Doc and Jennifer!! You are truly the best!!

Going to Beacon was the right thing to do. The care was professional and thoughtful. Dr. Velazquez was polite and exact, but also very concerned that I understand the problem and his proposed solution. Sam and Natalie were are very good.What I didn't like about Beacon was all the data collected about me, family history, medications, and especially race and ethnicity (asked for twice). I didn't even think it was legal to ask for this information. I felt like my privacy was ignored. That information is out there on the computer somewhere.

I had the best experience. Everyone there went out of their way, throughout all the parts of Beacon I visited. I live 3 hrs from Dr Valezquez’s office. I was seen and an mri was ordered. Due to a last minutecancellation, they were able to do my MRI same day. I expected to drive back in a week for results, but they let Dr Velazquez know and, even though he was fully booked AND needed to leave early, he had me come back in to read my MRI and treat me. He went out of his way to save me a trip back next week. On the day before Thanksgiving! Dr. Velazquez, his staff, the MRI staff, everyone went out of their way to help me out and it is so appreciated!

Dr Velazquez is great, I would recommend him and Beacon orthopedic to anyone need to see a orthopedic doctor. I drive two hours to see him and I’m able to get in to see him quicker than I can get intomy local doctors. Well worth my time to go see him.

This is a real "team" approach. One person ushers you into the examining room, another comes in and discusses your symptons, then you are sent to an x-ray technician, back to the examining room, this particular day I believe there wasan "intern" who did a ultrsound and then the doctor came in. Everything runs like a well-oiled machine.

My biggest problem with Beacon is they are consistently running late. Super convenient to schedule appointments and get appointments same/next day depending on the Doctor, but ALWAYS are at least 30 minutes late and average more than that.
