Maria C. Velez, MD

About Dr. Velez

I specialize in Cancer Care. I became a healthcare provider because I was inspired by my father, who was a physician. I shadowed him as a child and fell in love with medicine. My patients can count on me to provide extraordinary care because it’s an honor to be part of the patients’ lives, and taking care of them while providing comfort and healing.

My little something extra

I love to sing even though I’m the worst singer in the world.
