Ratings for Dr. Sylvia K. Velarde
Since the moment I met her last year I knew me and my baby were going to be in THE BEST hands. She made me feel 300% safe during my pregnancy, answered all my questions, had a lot of patience and she is as sweet as she can be. The office staff is beyond excellent, each one of them made me feel like family, I just cant believe I dont have to see them that often...I really miss them. Dr. Velarde helped me to deliver naturally the most beautiful and healty baby boy on April 17, 2014. She was there on time and my labor was easy thanks to her constant care. I recomend her 1000 %.
Dr.Velarde is an amazing Doctor! She was the answer to my sister's prayers when she was expecting my niece five years ago in her search for the perfect Doctor. Doctor Velarde was there for my sister when she went into labor although she was not even scheduled to be on call. She went above and beyond to make the experience for my sister a beautiful one. I switched over to Dr. Velarde and I am so glad that I did! Visits to the gyno are never visits to look forward to. But Dr. Velarde's staff have created a peaceful and happy atmosphere that visits to the gyno are so terrible anymore (: Everyone there is so pleasant!
Sylvia Velarde is completely unprofessional, unethical and someone who simply does not care about her patients and gives profession a bad name. I was her patient for my first pregnancy and she has not only failed to provide adequate medical care, ordered number of unnecessary tests, which were later determined to be completely unnecessary by my insurance company, but also misinformed me about my options during the delivery by insisting on a c-section and wasn't even in the hospital when I naturally delivered perfectly healthy baby. I could not even imagine that someone with such low level of training, professionalism and integrity, would be permitted to practice medicine, especially in such important and high risk field as being obstetrician.
I'm very happy she has her own practice now !!! She is amazing and her new staff super friendly! I love having my annual pap smears at her office. Most of all she is in network with my insurance company. Call and make an appointment! You will leave there feeling very comfortable
Dr. Verlarde is an amazing doctor. She is helpful, knowledgeable, and takes her time with her patients. She listens and advises her patients with current and relevant research. He staff is not the friendliest, however. They can at times be rude, and inconsiderate to the patients needs. I continue to visit her because she is the best doctor I've had in years.
