Dr. Velez credits a high school physiology teacher and his parents with instilling in him a love of medicine. “I was attracted to medicine and general surgery because of the direct and personal way it helps those in need,” explains Dr. Velez, who derives the most satisfaction from relationships with his patients. “My purpose has been to care for patients with uncompromised compassion and concern. Our moral credibility is earned by helping others regain their health,” he says.
