Dr. Velotta is a sincere, highly skilled physician. She is obviously intelligent and devoted to her specialty. Her office is beautifully maintained; care has been taken with the way it is decorated. It is both professional and comfortable, which puts patients at their ease.

Great doctor, young and very good in what she does. Very warm and caring. Can't recommend her high enough. The relatively new office, 5 years or so, quite busy but you can still schedule relatively soon. Not for too long though with the quality of care Dr. Velotta provides, she will be soon booked months in advance.

I highly recommend Dr. Velotta! She was able to remove an ingrown eyelash (which is apparently pretty uncommon) for me and put me at ease with her confidence prior to the procedure. I am so grateful she was the one to do it because she did it with such precision and care. She talked me through it step by step and was super supportive and professional when I was nervous. I will definitely be returning to her in the future and recommend all my friends and family. So happy I found her :)
