Dr Velez is just great at what he does. Great personality and demeanor and I trust his opinion about my care. It gets difficult when you have several different doctors telling you what they think you should do and he has helped me understand their different perspectives so I can make decisions that I feel comfortable with. And I always leave my appointments with him feeling better and more hopeful about my situation.
