    Dr. Velazquez-Rodriguez is an excellent provider. From the moment I found her, I have felt extremely grateful to be under her care. She is very good at communication, both in person, on the patient portal and through her staff. She is also very caring, patient and encouraging. She has helped to educate me in a number of techniques for how to manage Functional Neurological Disorder. All in all, I can't recommend her enough.

    I have been seeing Dr. Y. Velazquez-Rodriguez for many years now. I have never trusted a doctor so much. She is very knowledgeable of my autoimmune disease. She explains things easily and thoroughly. My questions never go unanswered. I am no longer in fear of my future with MG.

    I have been seeing her for quite some time now. She was extremely patient and thorough. She provided me with real information about my conditions that were and are impacting my ability to function. I have been given peace of mind and am now on medication that is treating those conditions. I trust her with my well being.

    Not only was she very knowledgeable of my autoimmune disorder but she was very thorough in asking questions about my history with the disease and getting the additional tests.
