Review of Dr. Velarde


Dr. Velarde was the answer of my prayers. I was in so much pain from medication that was prescribed to me from the hospital, and another doctor, I had severe muscle pains when I saw her.i really thought I was going to be on a wheelchair soon. She listened attentively and changed my medication, today it’s the third day getting better, muscle pains are going away day by day, I can walk again without complaints. God bless this Dr. she was God sent to me! I want to hug her, she gave me hope!

Review of Dr. Catanzaro

- in Yulee, FL |

Saved my life. Thank you. On top of being a great person, he is brilliant. He is an innovator and inventor. He is an excellent communicator. His follow up after the surgery was as if I were a family member. I am not. I am grateful.

Review of Dr. Antoun

Appointments have been cancelled twice. Once for a death in his family and another because he decided to do surgery on someone else rather than discuss with a patient the results of a test they had done weeks ago. I can see the one with the death but not the other. Especially when this appointment was made almost 3 weeks ago and now they moved it up another 12 days. It appears the only patients they are interested in is the ones making them $$$$$.

Review of Dr. Velarde

- in Jacksonville, FL |

Can’t be more pleased with attn she gave to my mom’s complaint. Dr. Velarde took a look at my mom and w/her extensive experience, she asked the right questions. Upon completing the exam she realized that my mom’s symptoms were due to a bigger problem. Velarde took time to msg my mom’s PCP and got us looking into the right direction. She chkd my mom’s heart, to ensure it was ok. But my mom’s main condition is being treated now and she has quality of life thanks to Dr. Velarde. GBY D.V!
