Patient Comments (2)
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Velu has been my primary care physician for roughly nine months, after transitioning from another PCP I had for seven-plus years. I was nervous about establishing a new relationship since I have a handful of serious chronic pain conditions, but Dr. Velu has been wonderful. During my first visit, she was attentive to my medical history and took the time to look through the records I brought with me. For ongoing care, she and her staff have been responsive and thoughtful. I'm glad I found her!

Dr. Velu is a masterful physician. When she meets with patients she makes you feel as though you are her ONLY priority. She takes time to explain - and time to listen. I would highly recommend her to anyone, male or female. She is also my wife's Primary Care Physician and she feels the same way I do. He staff is equally as efficient and friendly.
