Patient Comments (1)
in New Caney, TX |
He was very patient and took the time to explain what the treatments were and how they could possibly affect me. I had seen another oncologist and was extremely disturbed by their manner and how long they kept me waiting and then gave me wrong information. With Dr. Velasquez there was none of that I couldn't have been happier with another doctor or his staff.
