The doctor was very descriptive in what he was doing and explained things well to my daughter. He prescribed a medication that he knew likely wasn't covered by insurance and it wasn't, he gave an alternate instead of paying the severalhundred for the prescription. The over the counter medication will do the same thing, it will just take a while longer. We will definitely go back to see him as we need him, having a dancer/track kid, we have the potential to need a lot of foot help.

He was very kind to me and spent ample time discussing my condition and possible solutions. I did have to wait longer then I would liked but Dr. Velarde is well worth seeing if you are having foot problems.
