Dr. Velamati is straight to the point and very thorough. She thoroughly responds to questions and is quite professional and friendly. I like that she was not afraid to smile. She was honest with me and compassionate. I appreciate that as well. It is difficult to get an appointment and the wait to get in ws long, which are my only concerns. Her staff are all quite friendly and easy going. For this type of practice that is a good thing. I highly recommend Dr. Velamati to anyone!

I was 3 minutes away with an appointment at 245pm. I received a call at 225 that since I was not there yet I could not be seen. I got stuck in bus traffic from the high school. I will make the drive to Hopkins and return to my previous doctor. Unfortunately, I cant report anything else but I won’t be seeing Dr. Velamati due to her canceling when I was not even late. I understand we are suppose to arrive early but this has never happened to me with any of my doctors.
