Specialties

Dr. Cesar A Velarde has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Very Unsatisfied!!!

Very rude and unprofessional staff, doctor is very cold and not very helpful. Had over 3 procedures and not once did they ever call to follow up. I had to call and set appointments and staff was always rude and short. Say they'll call back and never do. Takes a month to get an appointment. Would NOT recommend this doctor to my worse enemy..

Unfriendly Staff Worker at Dr C. Valarde Office

I am Adult male who called Dr. Cesar's office 3 times to see if he was taking new patiences, when the female desk worker did speak with me she let out a very unapproving attitude in her list of aquired needs even before someone is considered to be viewed before the doctor say ok we can help this person is the opinion of the doctor(s) and not hers1) A referral which I already had she never asked 2) MRI ansd CT Scan which I have had many3) Notes for pervious Dr which I can get in a daythes's a proper way to talk with people on the phone and if I would have snapped back then of course I would be the one in the wrong as she sits now thiniking she disencouraged me from trying to be treated with a chronic illness. I was treated unfairly and I am not going to allow her to mistreat me and not let the doctor or someone know how this woman's behavior is not good.....
