This was our first time visiting the Down Syndrome clinic and seeing Dr. Vellody. He was very warm and inviting - like talking to a friend instead of a physician. He made us feel very calm and welcomed our questions regarding our child's care. We never felt rushed or like we were keeping him from anything. He is a true asset to the department.
Our annual visits with Dr. Vellody are always a highly positive experience. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and generous with his time. He has an easygoing demeanor and is great with our daughter. Beginning with our first appointment eight years ago, we have had an extreme comfort level with Dr. Vellody.

Dr Vellody is a wonderful physician, and part of a terrific team at the Down syndrome clinic. We are SO GRATEFUL to have him as a resource and doctor. He listened to everything we had to say, and took plenty of time to make sure our questions were answered. He asked about things I'd never even thought of, which gives me plenty of time to do research and observe things about my daughter before any problems arise.
