Dr. Velez is one of the best doctors I have ever visited with, across all specialties. She is so tentative to the needs of her patients and works with compassion. I had Moh’s surgery last year in a delicate area and she personally followed up on how I was feeling and how the stitches were healing, even after office hours on a weekend! I recommend Nicole to everybody, plus the waiting room is SO pretty... it’s a win-win.

Dr Velez treated my skin cancer last November. I have never met ANY doctor who follows up with her patient like Dr Velez did with me. She even returned a call on Thanksgiving weekend, when I had concerns about my healing process. She is kind and compassionate as well as a top-notch doctor when it comes to Mohs surgery.
