    I believe Dr. Verela has gone above and beyond what his job asks to provide me with great care

    Dr. V. was awesome. He calmed my fears about the surgery and was very personable.

    Pretty impersonal interaction.

    He needs to be more aware of what the patient is saying. I didn't feel like he paid attention to anything I was saying or how I felt. And he was just very disrespectful and he really did not listen to any of my concerns or any of my problems with my health.

    I was really impressed with this young man, I trusted him immediately, I wish he could be the surgeon for my surgery but if he can't make it over to salt lake, thank you bye.
