Dr. Velez Reviews
Doctor and staff were great. Jasmine and Chanda made me feel right at home.
Made me feel very comfortable
All went well and staff were friendly
I had a really bad experience at another place and my experience here could not have been better. Dental surgery is not fun, but the staff does an excellent job of making you feel comfortable and cared about. Doctor obviously is very skilled and does great work.
The doctor and his staff are very friendly. I can get my appointment and my procedure faster than the other Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery location. Thank you Dr. Velez to do my procedure the next day after my appointment. You are the best.
