Nothing like trying to diagnose a problem with your child...DR. VALERO has a tendency to talk down to the parents rather then talking to them. Doesn't likes to be questioned too much. His time is too sparse. We got to see him once or twice with each visit lasting 5 to 10 mins with nothing but being told... Let's try this medicine. If a doctor can't relate and talk to the family rather than talking down to them... Well it's the reason we switched Dr's.

Absolutely amazing! Dr. Valero will try and do every means necessary to take care of his patients. Truly a caring doctor. I am not even from Nashville Tn; yet, the trip to make sure my son is getting the best care is definitely worth the 2 hour drive. We love Dr, Valero and you will too. I recommend Dr. Valero to everyone!
