Follow-up on my condition

Review for Dr. Velasquez

Review for Dr. Pinchinat

The doctor was thorough and had the equipment in his office to x-ray and diagnose my problem on the spot. He treated my foot and gave me excellent common sense things I can do on my own to prevent the problem from reoccurring. I am completely satisfied and I do recommend Dr Merritt.
