Unhappy Patient – Mar 06, 2021
I have had the privilege to be a patient of Dr Vela now twice. He truly cares about you and making you feel the best you can feel. He has NEVER pushed me to do anything I didn’t want to do. He is truly professional,honest, caring,great listener, very knowledgeable about the body and options to achieve what your goal is,etc. I HIGHLY recommend him and his office. This will not be the last time I go to him!
