What People Say About Dr. Federico Velez, MD

I was hit from behind while riding my bike in 2016 by a distracted 21 year old driver. I ended up with too many fractures to mention. I had three traumatic brain injuries which resulted in a 4th cranial nerve palsy which caused a very complicated case of diplopia (double vision). I suffered with this double vision for 14 months. After many interviews with several ophthalmologists I was luckily referred to Dr. Velez. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and confidence. His diagnosis was confirmed with an MRI of my brain/eyes. I felt 100% confidence in my choice of surgeons. I scheduled surgery with Dr. Velez. After a 1 1/2 hour surgery I opened my eyes to seeing one Dr. He advised it would take about a week to have far away objects completely fuse into one object. He was completely honest with me from day one. I have had all my follow ups with Dr Velez and they have all been excellent. I can't say enough about how his expertise gave me back my full active lifestyle.

Doctor Vélez, soy un paciente de Colombia recomendado por la doctora Johana Villamizar. Tengo un problema de estrabismo desde algunos años en razón de una paresia de uno de los músculos laterales. Quisiera aprovechar su experiencia cuando venga a la FOSCAL., pero antes quisiera comunicarme con usted para saber la fecha de su venida y programar mi agenda. Tengo unos exámenes que me fueron practicados para realizar una cirugía. sería importante para mi conocer su email, fin contactarlo.
