Patient Comments (2)
in Long Island, NY |
Dr. Velar saved my father's life. We were vacationing in FL, and he had emergency gall bladder surgery. Dr. Velar was consulted as my dad has kidney issues. Dr. Velar continued to consult for the 40 days that my dad was in/out of the hospital, going far beyond the scope of his responsibility to nephrology, & always cared for my father considering all aspects of medicine. My father was overmedicated, and Dr. Velar caught the error & had me turn the car around & go to the ER. Saved his life!
