Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Velazques has been my primary for over a decade. He is thorough and conscionable, He actually sits and speaks with you not just about your result but things in your life that affect those results. When you come back 6 months - 1 yr later he remembers!! You don't have to wait days or weeks...more

Very disappointed with Dr. Velazquez and his practice. More interested in having extra exams done at his office. Does not listen to your needs, only interest is on volume of patients not the time that should be given and attention
