I have been a patient of Velma's for several years now, and I have been nothing but happy with her service. She is not just your average physician, trying to get you in and out as fast as possible, but she is someone who takes an interest in her patients and looks out for their best interests. I would recommend her and this office to anyone.

Love Velma Parris professional etiquette. I the patient is very important to her because she pays attention to you and asks you questions about your condition. If specialist are needed for certain test she will send you to one.. Her first priority is the patient and you don't find too many doctors nowadays that are that way. Would recommend her to anybody who needs a good doctor to take care of them
