Patient Comments (6)

Would not recommend. I left velocity care Monday at 11:00 am. They told me to see hand spe cialist. I called as soon as I got home. Its Wednesday 3:20 and no one has called to schedule appointment. Glad I wasn't dying. Would not recommend.

This physician simply does not care about patients as several of his other reviews state. He spent less than a minute in the room with me every visit and only touched my wrist once. Didn't care that it was hurting so badly I couldn't sleep. Just said come back in a month if it's still hurting. No...more

I went to see him for a broken wrist (confirmed by x-ray). He spent approximately 90 seconds with me. Wanted to do an MRI (soft tissue test) before he would cast my arm. Apparently he is FAR too busy to deal with mundane problems like broken wrists.
