    How was your appointment with Dr. Velasquez?

    Mar 26, 2021
    We have been using Dr. V for 15 years. He is an outstanding doctor in both oncology and hematology. His skill and knowledge is vast. His empathy and caring far surpasses most doctors. Some of his staff are fabulous; others not so much. The wait times can be long and this is very frustrating. My biggest issue with his practice is the wait times. If that could be resolved it would be amazing. I use him because he is the best in the business and takes the time (hence the long wait times) to talk to you as a person not just a set of lab results. I highly recommend him but you have to take the wait times with the excellent care.
