Dr Velez is incredibly compassionate and caring. She leaves no stone upturned and is extremely thorough. She knows her craft extremely well. and on top of all that she has a great sense of humor. I feel incredibly fortunate to have her as my family Doctor.

Review for Dr. Sopt

Rude! Talks about family when she thinks they can’t hear her, no bedside manner, horrible appearance. Doesn’t drug test her pill taking patients.
