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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Velazquez

from Chris in TX March 29, 2024 for Francisco J. Velazquez, MD

That’s what I think of when I think of Dr. Velazquez. The reason why is because he truly did save my life many years ago. I was in my early thirties, and he sent me to get a scan because I had a persistent hernia. Well, the radiologist luckily found a small spot on one of my kidneys, which ended up being cancerous. Dr. Velazquez quickly entered quarterback mode and guided me through selecting… See more

I joined MDVIP less than a year ago at the recommendation of a friend. The Conceierge Doctor experience is new for me but I gladly share that my only regret is not joining and meeting Dr. Francisco Velazquez sooner. Francisco's experience, passionate care, and personal attention is exceptional.

from David in TX February 22, 2024 for Francisco J. Velazquez, MD

I have been very fortunate to have meet Dr. V many years ago. The bond that we have forged in my mind is beyond just a patient /doctor level ..its is a trusting collaborative friendship with purpose. How one might ask!. It is based on Dr V's methods of honesty and bed side manner. He creates the environment where we both can be honest with one another.

When I started going to Dr. Velazquez, I was on a plethora of medications. Everything from stomach, anxiety medication; muscle relaxers. You name it. He was able to get me on medications that work for me and into a routine to where I don’t have to take any medication unless absolutely necessary.
Best doctor ever. He really cares!

from Geoffrey in TX March 21, 2023 for Francisco J. Velazquez, MD

Dr. Velazquez is SIMPLY THE BEST. I have found him to be ALWAYS up- to-the-minute in his medical skill and knowledge, available at a moment's notice, deeply caring and personal in his treatment. I admire and trust Dr. Velazquez, and I feel so fortunate to have him as my doctor.

My story is nothing specific but just to say that Dr. Velazquez is truly the best doctor exaggeration. He's personable and professional as well as incredibly intelligent and intuitive.

A wonderful caring doctor. Always takes the time to discuss issues. I traveled abroad last year and he looked up what vaccines I needed.

After having a lymph node swell on my neck, Dr Velasquez didn't want to delay to find out whether there was a significant issue, or not. Dr intervened to set up a next day appointment with a talented but "hard to get an appointment with" specialist for testing and confirmation that I did have throat cancer. The quick response was very nice, to start the addressing the issue and… See more
