Dr Gonzalez is the best and most compassionate Dr around. He was my parents dr and was on top of everything they needed. When my Dad went through complicated surgery at Tampa General, the Tampa Dr called Dr Gonzales to tell him what my Dad needed when he returned home. When the Tampa General Dr hung up the phone, he said how impressed he was after speaking to Dr Gonzalez and he was very comfortable that Dad would be cared for properly with his family Dr. He saved my life in 2013. He's great

This is the best office in the area! The doctor and the staff are amazing and go above and beyond for all of their patients. I highly recommend this office and any of the providers. They have taken wonderful care of me and my family.

Dr Gonzalez is always willing to spend significant time with me during appointments.
in Brooksville, FL |
Always professional and courteous, concerned with health and takes interest in activities which impact health. Staff is always friendly and treats me with professionalism. PA at practice is young and actively encouraging about treating high blood pressure. Substitute physician is Dr. King who recommended West Coast facility for treatment of shoulder pain.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Gonzalez for years. He takes time to listen and genuinely cares about you and your health. The staff is wonderful as well. I highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez and his entire practice.
in Spring Hill, FL |
As a long time patient of Dr Gonzales I was appalled and disappointed when I was told by a receptionist that I would have to come back after rescheduling a new appointment because I had forgotten my prescription bottles. No one asked me if I had any pressing medical needs or explained on the phone that if I didn't have my med bottles that there would be no office visit allowed. I feel that the Dr. has no respect for for me as his patient or my time by the use of this policy. He has all my meds
