Patient Comments (1)
in Oceanside, CA |
I treated my knee and back problems with Dr. Veliz for over eight years. He never failed to ameliorate my pain. Dr. Veliz was always thorough and careful. He has a wonderful ability to find the exact spot and is very gentle when placing the needle accurately. While my knees have since been replaced, I will request care from Dr. Veliz in the future for my back issues (with or without insurance). I trust him implicitly and recommend Dr. Veliz to my friends and to anyone seeking the absolute best
