Velma is a careful practitioner. She engages in meaningful conversation about your illness and peripheral matters that have a bearing on those complaints. Anyone would be lucky to have a practitioner as thorough and caring as Velma. I would almost rather keep her as a secret than let others take her time away from me!

Velma Parris is a great NP. She takes the time to actually listen to you and work to make sure all aspects of your issues are addressed. I did not feel rushed during my time with her and felt like my concerns were given her full attention. She and the staff are also excellent at following up with you. I highly recommend her and Dr. Breeling!

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.
