Angel Velazquez, M.D.

I chose Beacon because I was not getting relief from my pain at another office. I am so happy that I came to Beacon. I now live without pain and am getting back into distance running slowly but surely. It was absolutely worthwhile, and I don't regret the time I spent recovering and in physical therapy at all.
