What People Say About Dr. Luis Velazquez, MD

AVOID!! When I arrived in the office today, the rude lady at the front counter informed me that I needed a "release" from my current pain management doctor before they would see me. When I explained to her that I didn't have this "release" because I was only seeing Dr. Velazquez for a consultation today and wanted to make sure he was the right doctor for me, she made it clear it was not her problem and there was nothing she could do. When I mentioned having called several times, including to make my appointment, and even came into the office yesterday to get the new patient paperwork, she told me I didn't disclose I was already seeing a pain management doctor. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Beware .. Agreed to have a steroid injection in my neck to relieve the pain, if I would be sedated. I was never sedated and the IV for the meds created excruciating pain in my right thumb. Was told it was just the medication causing the pain. Follow up visit was given a prescription for pain by the PA. Researching, discovered it to be toxic if I took dose recommended. Another visit was told by another PA that I should only take one pill a day and not 3. Will not return. Lesson learned!!

Dr V always makes sure to have me in and out with no discomfort. I can't begin to tell you how much my pain injections enable me to live and work normally again. Thank you so very much.

I wouldn't go to another pain doctor after going to Dr. Velasquez. He's helped relieve my pain from back, hip & knee issues. I was barely able to walk & now I am doing so much better. He's up-to-date on all medical procedures & is a qualified, kind & compassionate physician. He always takes time to listen to my concerns & explain things in a way that I understand. I have no doubt that if it wasn't for him I would have had a hip replacement & possible back surgery by now. Excellent staff too!

Been seeing him for approx. 2 years and find him to be very knowledgeable. I don't feel rushed and he takes time to let you explain what is happening and will explain medical condition and procedures, etc.. Very courteous. His office on Flamingo is pleasant...don't care for the one on Lake Mead.
