I'm and older patient. No pregnancy in future for me. I have Osteoprophis and other serious healt issues. She listens to me! Works closely with my other physicians. On day I was scheduled for surgery. I was waiting for the Drs to take me to the operating room. In walks Dr Valdez, in her scrubs. She came to me and hugged my neck. She said I saw your name on surgery list. I wanted to come by and check on you. And pray with you!! She's that way. No act! Caring person. Their practice is FULL! Because they are professionals. I find their staff professional. They helped me find orgiznations that aid folks with limited income apply for Osteoprophis care I could afford. The staff followed through the paper work the companies required! I was not alone in this effort to receive my reduced -free assistance. Good folks. Your looking for fancy coffee pots, cokes and cookies this is not your place. You looking for old fashioned care these are your Doctors. I have been with them going on eight years. I highly recommend both Doctots!!
Dr. Velez has been my doctor for many years now and is the best doctor I have ever had. She is very nice and is always concerned. She has sent me for testing that other doctors have looked over and found me doctors to follow up with. I have refered many others to her and would always recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Velez was called in when a growth was found on my ovary/tube during surgery for a colon problem. After I was released from the hospital, I made an appointment to see her to talk about what she found and had done since I was under sedation at the time. She was so kind and so thorough in talking with me that I decided to see her for my next annual exam which was due in a couple of months. I had no problem making an appointment which surprised me since I always had to make my appointment 5-6 months out at the doctor I had seen for the previous 20+ years. When I arrived for the exam appointment, the receptionist said, "We will be right with you." And she meant exactly that! I was called back before I got settled into a seat with a magazine. My wait in the exam room was maybe 5 minutes, during which time the nurse was very nice and tried to put me at ease. I admit, I am very nervous and uncomfortable at any doctor's office, and this is greatly magnified when I also happen to be naked. Dr. Valez was patient & gentle, she brought up things I had inquired about on the previous visit. This let me know she was actually listening and made me feel like she genuinely cared about me. By the time I left the office after my exam, I knew I had found a new doctor because I didn't have that awful feeling of having just been "violated".
