I found Dr. Velez Calao to be great - good bed side manner and was thoughtful with the answers to my questions. I also find the office to be very efficient - I never wait longer than ten minutes after arrival, and I love that I can communicate with them via text.

My visit was very pleasant doctor Velez took her time to know me and look deeper into my problem she's very friendly and professional.
Her office is easy to access inside the Mount Sinai Hospital Complex. The office was very clean and I was taken care right of the way. They didn't receive my online check-in. I had to filled-up everything again there. The doctor was very nice and seen to be knowledgeable. Took care of my issue right away. I will recommend her for a friend or family. Thank you.
