I had two appointments with Dr. Velazquez. At the first appointment, I was taken back by her condescending communication with me. I am a senior citizen several years her elder and have had many sessions with doctors throughout my lifetime. I have never been treated or talked to in a manner that she talked to me. She talked to me like I was a child being reprimanded, very disrespectful. To this day I can see no reason why. I mentioned this to one of the staff in the office and they told me that it was because of her culture. I would have accepted this for the first visit but at my second and last visit ever, she treated me worse, shouting at me for no reason that I can understand, as I never believed any doctor in this country would be allowed to operate this way. Besides being humiliated in the examining room, I was very embarrassed leaving as I know everyone in the neurology department could hear this. I have always had the most respect for all doctors and have never made a complaint or had any reason to complain before this encounter. All I can say is that I have nothing to gain by writing this except to hope that someone else is not subjected to this type of treatment.
