Dr. Velez is a consummate professional and an everyone’s man at the same time. He always has provided me and all of his patients great guidance. I had a transplant 34 years ago and I am fine today because of his care. All of the staff and doctors at DNA are worthy of this review. Good job all!

Dr Velez is the rare physician who truly listens to you, does the appropriate testing, and weighs everything before determining the best course of treatment. I believe he truly partners with the patient to achieve the best outcomes. He also actually calls when he says he will, not just empty promises so he can move on to the next patient.

DNA receptionist -Becky -at the Viceroy office is exceptional and welcoming. Then Carla, the nurse has a warm sense of humor and is very kind,.. Dr. Ruben Velez is a superior health care provider. He cares deeply about his patients and is an excellent listener who is not in a hurry but listens carefully before he speaks. I am so fortunate to have this team providing for my care. It was also delightful to talk a moment to Nadia who was a huge help to me when I started my 37 lb weight loss. Everyone on this team is honest and direct ... and I appreciate each of them for their role in my ongoing care with CKD.

From the time you walk in and see Becky till you see Dr Velez you are treated like family. If you are here you are probably having some issues and they are very sensitive to that fact. Very kind office.
