Dr. Velasco is a compassionate and caring doctor. His knowledge and experience leads to his driving passion that truly makes him a wonderful doctor. He makes time with you to discuss your diagnosis and treatment options available, answering any questions you may have. He is very careful to disperse the correct medication according to your diagnosis. He makes certain that you keep up with your orthopedic surgeon, neurosurgeon, and any other doctors that may be helpful to your diagnosis.

Dr Velasco is a caring, compassionate, and talented Doctor. I was extremely apprehensive before my procedure for my back shots and not only did he put me at ease once he entered the room, but also performed the procedure with expertise, much care, and promptness. What I fear was going to be a very painful experience, turned out to be one with very minimal discomfort, and great results. He truly has the hands of an Angel.
Wonderful caring concerned Doctor not rushed, relaxed atmosphere, staff very accommodating and professional. Excellent overall rating. Highly recommended.
