I have been suffering with chronic back pain for 9 years. I have seen numerous specialists but after a few months they tell me they have run out of treatment options and refer me on to someone else. Dr. Velling is the only pain specialist that hasn't given up on me and continues to help treat my pain related issues. I am so grateful that I was referred to him.

As always, Dr. Velling's assistant, Felicia, is helpful in giving computer directions and eliciting medications taken, and formulating appt needs. Dr. Velling is personable, professional, educative, takes his time in eliciting concerns, and summarizes what we have discussed in our problem-solving. I am a long-time patient of Dr. Velling and have implicit trust in his judgement.
