My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In Primary Care, the physician is your partner in achieving good health. We will work together so I can guide you and offer recommendations on how to obtain your health goals, but it is up to the patient to implement the plan. I believe that at any given age, you should know how well you are doing health wise, and not just go by how you feel. That’s why it is always important to get a comprehensive health exam every year.

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, the main building block is the personalized approach I take with each individual during their wellness exam. In order to prevent disease, I have to care for the patient as a whole, and not just review the laboratory results. Special areas of interest to me are high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol management. As a native of Puerto Rico, I am fluent in Spanish.

from Sylvia in TX March 16, 2018 for Francisco J. Velazquez, MD

I have been seeing Dr. Velazquez for several years for general medical issues. In all honesty, he is the best physician I have ever had. He is very patient, explains medical issues clearly and simply, and shows understanding and compassion. He is thorough and never judges...rather, he presents the information that I should be following (in lifestyle, diet, etc.) with sensitivity and concern… See more

Dr. Velazquez and his team give great service and try always to satisfy my needs. Most recently assisting with resolving a billing appeal with a provider that takes lots of time to deal with such an issue. These days are most difficult with healthcare with what's covered not covered. I will be glad to be on Medicare!!!

I feel as if I am the only patient that you see when I come to see you for a visit.
I havent had the personal care from any doctor that I have from you even before you changed to the MD VIP platform of care.

I would never go to a different doctor. Dr. Velazquez takes his time and really discusses any health issues. He and his office are proactive and make sure I am current with medications. If I need a referral it is done immediately.
I can not say enough about his caring manner.
In this day and age it is important to have a doctor you trust and has you best interest at heart. You… See more
