Dr Velotta performed a left lung pneumonectomy on my brother April 2nd 2021 for stage 3 non small cell lung cancer. This was a 6 hr surgery which also involved cancer on the pulmonary aorta. My brother is now recovering very well and is cancer free. Dr Velotta is a highly skilled surgeon.

Review for Dr. Velotta

He belittles his patients and does not follow up on requests. I explained my PTSD and how it affected short-term memory, and that I needed things in writing after visits. Not once did he provide anything in writing without follow-up requests from me.

Review for Dr. Pollard

I had to have extensive reconstructive surgery on my foot due to a diabetic condition ("Charcot's Foot"). Dr. Dickinson did a wonderful job and couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. I highly recommend him.
