What can I say about him. He is the best doctor I have dealt with. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, listens and treat his patients like a human being. He literally saved my life and brought back my faith and strength to fight my illness. I am off from all my medicines and I am completely recovered from my illness. After God, I am thankful to dr. Velasco for all his support.
