Dr. Velarde was the answer of my prayers. I was in so much pain from medication that was prescribed to me from the hospital, and another doctor, I had severe muscle pains when I saw her.i really thought I was going to be on a wheelchair soon. She listened attentively and changed my medication, today it’s the third day getting better, muscle pains are going away day by day, I can walk again without complaints. God bless this Dr. she was God sent to me! I want to hug her, she gave me hope!

Can’t be more pleased with attn she gave to my mom’s complaint. Dr. Velarde took a look at my mom and w/her extensive experience, she asked the right questions. Upon completing the exam she realized that my mom’s symptoms were due to a bigger problem. Velarde took time to msg my mom’s PCP and got us looking into the right direction. She chkd my mom’s heart, to ensure it was ok. But my mom’s main condition is being treated now and she has quality of life thanks to Dr. Velarde. GBY D.V!

Dr V. was a stranger to me and I to her. I am a black female who came to see her. She treated me with the utmost respect, took time with me, asked me appropriate questions and gave my the most comprehensive PHYSICAL exam ANY CARDIOLOGIST has given me in my lifetime. And to follow up she ordered lab blood work. A lot of physician would Not care enough, putting such things off until your Primary Physician ordered labs. We talked about many reasons for my illness. Great staff:front desk&LEKITA.

I would give zero star if I could. She came late and was in a bad mood because something had happened and kept rumbling about how busy she was. She yelled at me for not knowing my medications. She asked me the same questions multiple times and looked distracted. Eventually she left the room without listening to my heart or chest. I don't trust her.

I've been seeing Dr Velarde for years! She examines me thoroughly each time I come in. She is friendly and to patients and nurses alike. She is often late, but her office gives her only 20 minutes per patient. When she gives more than that time to another patient, I know she'll also give it to me. Personally, her expertise feels worth the wait.
