Dr Velazquez is patient and caring. He is never in a rush to move me along, and listens carefully as I describe symptoms to him. He has treated me multiple times for bronchitis or asthma attacks, and in complications in diabetes control resulting from the asthma attack. He is compassionate, has never demonstrated what I would call Professional Arrogance My very highest rating to him for care of patient. he does not just write prescriptions - he listens and treats.
