Dr. Velez has been my physician for the last 19 years, and I feel that she is the reason that I have reached my 86th year in good health. Her concentration has been on preventing medical problems from occurring as opposed to waiting for them to break out and then curing them. She is an absolutely brilliant physician, and knows my body intimately both in and out. My meds are often checked for effectivity and side effects. She is caring, and her staff are efficient. Nothing "falls into cracks".

Dr. Velez Cortes is a true treasure that took 14 months for my wife and I to discover. Prior, we dealt with a number of docs more interested in charging for every test her insurance would cover rather than finding out what was causing my wife pain. It took this Dr. one visit to diagnose her and in a matter of days she was on the way to wellness. We couldn't be happier! Highly recommend her to everyone!

Both my mother and I have been with Dr. Velez for at least 15 years. Dr. Velez saved my mother from a missed diagnosis of cancer by other doctors. She saved my mother's life. Dr. Velez is compassionate, knowledgeable, and personable. She is excellent at diagnosing and treating a multitude of issues. She makes superior recommendations to specialists, if they are needed. I will never go to another primary care physician. Dr. Velez is the very best!

What can I say? SHE IS THE BEST INTERNIST AND GERIATRICIAN THAT YOU CAN GET !!!! Professional, kind, intelligent, patient, caring, and loved by all her patients. My best friend referred me to her office several years ago and I was so impressed with her that I have done the same: referring her to all my friends too! If it is great why not sharing it? And she is Board Certified and re certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics !!!!

A nightmare in every way -- long waits, rude, careless, incompetent staff, unprofessional practices, that include over-prescribing meds to my elderly mother, not returning calls. Subjecting my mother to this unprofessional doctor is one of the greatest regrets I will ever have.

LOVE Dr. Velez! She is personable, takes her time, orders appropriate tests & ensures follow up appointments are made. They give you printed copies of your test results for your review. All this considered ..... she's just a really good person, easy to talk to and very understanding. Wait time has been better than most primary offices I have been in. I am so glad I found her!

Dr. Velez is very thorough, intelligent, very professional and approachable. She always follows through to ensure the treatment is appropriate. Yes,you wait a bit in her office but the wait is TOTALLY worth it. She keeps you healthy, works really hard on prevention of diseases, is efficient and very kind. She discusses your reports, educate you, explains diseases, medications uses, side effects etc. I have seen her for more than 16 years and she examined me in every single occasion! Love my doc!

The last two visits I had with Dr. Velez, I waited an hour to an hour and a half and still did not see her. I left the office. A very patient unfriendly waiting room. There is a milk glass partition between the waiting room and the office personnel with two inadequate cut outs. One is a small slit where the office slides the sign in sheet to the other side and the other is a round hole that is too high to speak into. People have to almost get on their knees to get the attention of the offic
