I will definitely recommend Dr. Gonzalez, I have had an excellent experience with my Total Knee Replacement. Having Physical Therapy on premise was the best, because any questions or needs were taken care of ASAP.

Dr. Gonzalez is an excellent physician, well prepared and dedicated to his patients care. He will take his time in explaining and answering any questions that arise and will make sure you leave his office with an excellent experience and relief. Dr. Gonzalez is the best orthopedic surgeon I have met and thanks to him I'm on my way for a great recovery.

I highly recommend DR Gonzales. He is very knowledgeable, and caring, compassionate and thorough. Doctor, nurses and staff were very courteous. I was kept very well informed. I had rotator cuff surgery on February 2016. Doctor made sure I wouldn't experience any pain before I went into surgery. I was on pain killers only 4 days after the surgery, never felt pain. I've had no issues since. I recommended him to my sister for rotator cuff surgery, and my husband for knee surgery, he is doing good.

After a very bad experience with a local orthopedic group I was hesitant to pursue further treatment. However, a friend highly recommended Dr. Gonzalez. He listened to me and addressed all of my concerns, unlike my experience with the larger group. Night and day! Both Dr. Gonzalez and his staff provide excellent, personal care!

I found Dr. Gonzalez to be very informative and helpful. I like the fact that he explained everything he would do to correct the problem, answered all questions and left no doubt in your mind. I left his office looking forward to the surgery with complete faith that everytyhing would work out fine. If all doctors were like this wouldn't it be great!
in El Paso, TX |
This was a GREAT experience. He was professional, very thorough, and took the time to answer ALL of our questions. I switched to Dr. Gonzalez via recommendation from a nursing colleague after a VERY, VERY bad experience with Dr. Diaz-Pagan. In addition, his staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful.

I had surgery June 14th for a knee replacement. Every visit with him thus far has been great. I go with my list of questions and concerns, and he takes the time to answer every single one without hesitation. I'm still recovering, and had a slight set back, but he explained what the next strategic move was for me with a positive attitude. I believe his concerns for each patient is authentic and motivated by his passion to help the lives of his patients. I recommend him highly. Kindly, Sr. Becky

Dr Gonzalez recently performed the surgery to replace my left knee. One year ago he did the right one. I can't imagine anyone more qualified and professional in their approach to making me feel great once again. I would recommend Carols to friends and family without reservation. Les McKee

This was the first time I had visited with Dr. Gonzalez and I must say he is a terrific doctor and person. Dr. Gonzalez sat down and explained everything I needed to know about my arthritic hip and also noticed that I was developing a notch on my femur bone from my previous hip resurfacing. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. Very personable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gonzales to friends and family.

I took my mom to Dr. Gonzalez because she needed a total knee replacement. He was great at explaining the procedure and options to her. After the surgery she had minimal pain, she started walking the same day of the surgery. My mom is 75 years old and recovered quickly from the surgery.
