Not the best experience. He was very disshoveled took him 5 minutes to realize I was not the correct patient he then left the room to see the correct patient and left me with a student. When he came back Ihad to reexplain my issues.Didn't even look at me when I spoke. I am sure he is a good Dr. I just personally did not have the best first impression.

He was unbelievable. It's a shame not too many healthcare practitioners spend as much time with the patient as he does; Really a shame. He sat there and talked with me for what may have been a solid 20-30 min. Hewas just going through my history getting to know me. I was actually pleasantly surprised. He hasn't forgotten what this healthcare field is about despite the climate change. As a fellow healthcare practitioner, I can honestly say I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Dr Velez was very professional and courteous. He allowed me to voice my concerns while listening attentively. I left with a plan on how to handle my concerns. He was very good and I would recommend him to anyone.

Really good doctor who also thinks about the well-being of the individual as well as the society. Antibiotic resistance is a serious issue and he prescribes only when and if it is necessary.
