This practice is old-school and I dig it. Dr. Goncalves spends time in the exam room explaining labs, methodology and courses of treatment. He is steadfast and experienced -- a true gentleman. I am now considered controlled and am very thankful that we found each other after many fits and starts on my part with a general practice. I have recommended him to many. This is not a Disneyland practice, nor does it need to be -- the care is efficient, focused and excellent.

I credit Dr Goncalves with my being alive today. After suffering for almost 4 months at the hands of several QUACKS in Gadsden, AL I was desperate. My Blood sugar levels were never less than 700...I was, after 4 months, out of my mind. I went to Dr Goncalves and within 2 weeks he had me off insulin with my levels below 200...These quacks in Gadsden will kill people and not think twice about it. Needless to say Dr Goncalves is highly recommended by me!!!
