Dr. Gonzalez is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He really does listen to his patient and comes across as a friend just as much as my doc. His office staff are very kind, caring which many know is unusual in most offices.

I saw Dr Gonzalez for pain management and the results were great. He explained the process and everything was simple and clear. I like a doctor that doesn't sugar coat the situations.
Dr. Gonzalez's staff is among the worst I've ever experienced at a doctor's office. Totally incompetent -- the people who answer the phones absolutely do not care, and sound like they have not been trained. They're cold, unhappy and unfriendly. The Doctor can never be reached, and trying to get messages to him is like a ridiculous game of "telephone" -- messages are never given with any accuracy. The Doctor has spread himself too thin, with too many locations. He rushes, never has time.

I recommend spine and wellness centers of America to every person who has suffered from pain related injuries. TY Dr.Gonzalez you saved my life and you don't even want recognition that is called selfless. But credit is due to your amazing staff of human beings. You are #1 and 1love to all.

Dr. Gonzalez is one of the finest, knowledgeable and caring doctors I've ever seen in my 15 years of back pain. I've been seeing him over 1 year. Two months ago I had awful hips pain that I couldn't even walk and after other doctors didn't know the reason, Dr. Gonzales told me what I had and put an injection and thanks to him I can walk again. I was in shock reading the last two reviews from I believe the same person who wants to discredit this doctor with lies. I highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez!

Dr.Gonzalez is about one thing only $$$$$$$$$$$.has no compassion for patients in extreme pain unless they have a lot of money. i went to his office in extreme pain & he would not give me a shot to relieve the pain unless i paid him $1250.00 dollars.i paid because he told me following shots would be $200.00 when i came back he wanted $750 or leave i left

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR, HE WORKS ONLY FOR MONEY, DISGUSTING PERSON AND WORST HUMAN BEING! Doctor Christian Gonzales performed a surgery to my mother (74 years old) at Aventura Hospital. She still in pain after the surgery but the doctor refuses to see her after surgery because he is requesting from her to pay $500.00 for the follow up consultation since they don't accept medicaid. It is disgusting to see how human beings get so humiliated from other people just because they don't have money

Got a procedure done as an outpatient

I've been see Dr. Gonzalez care for the better part of 4 years. The only time I wasn't under his care was when my insurance changed. He takes the time to listen and has been very understanding with me. My treatment and prescriptions have changed many times, but always for the better. He is one of the only doctor's that hasn't treated me like it's all in your head or as a drug seeker. The Botox treatments were a lifesaver. Every Dr.he has referred me to has been wonderful also.
