Biography

Dr. Velez is an experienced surgeon specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. “I really draw a lot of my inspiration from my patients. They keep me going. I love getting to know each one of them, because they each bring different life experiences. It’s such a pleasure for me to learn about where my patients are coming from and what I can do to help them,” said Dr. Velez.

Though her specialty area is breast disease, Dr. Velez offers a full range of general surgery services, including general abdominal surgery, gallbladder, colon, and rectal surgery, appendectomy, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and hernias.

Dr. Velez is board certified in General Surgery. Dr. Velez belongs to the Board Certified American Society of Breast Surgeons.
