Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gonzalez-Cota "I believe the human body has a blueprint for self-healing from injury or disease; my job as a physician is to enhance that process with an individualized interventional approach to increase physical function, promote the return to a productive lifestyle at home or at work, and limit the need for future spine, joint, or nerve treatments."

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of time Dr. Cota spent discussing the issues with my spine AND my overall health! He really does consider the the entire body! Dr. Cota is one of a small number of doctors who understand professional and sincere bedside manner. He carefully explained the issues I have; explained best and worst case scenarios and various treatment options available for me. He really took his time with me and he provided me with a thorough an comprehensive visit!

Best referral ever from my PCP, Dr. AJ Johnson! Dr. Cota is a consonant advocate & has given me the best options for my pain relief and care. Dr. Cota is the ultimate professional & delivers care in a fact based, deliberate & compassionate manner. I know I have to be my own best advocate & he always provides me guidance & the assurance I need to do so; however, he believes the client gets the best care when one invests, commit & acts on their care. Thank you Dr. C & I know this to shall pass

I cannot praise Dr. Cota and the pain clinic enough. He gave me hope when I was hopeless, when I felt no one was listening to me in regard to the pain level I felt after a surgery. He is a kind, compassionate man with a wealth of professional knowledge; recognizing problems from descriptions I gave. I would recommend him and his clinic to anyone; excellent bed side manner. Plan he prescribed has worked great!

Dr. Gonzalez-Cota is kind and smart and everything you'd want in a doctor. He spent a lot of time with me, listening and explaining and offering various options for treatment. I saw several doctors before him and want to save everyone the trouble of consulting with someone who doesn't have the expertise and caring of Dr. Gonzalez-Cota.
