Orlando, FL |
I have had generalized seizure disorder for years, an abnormal EEG, but fairly stable on my medications. This was a new doctor for me. Even with my medical records he dismissed the idea I have epilepsy, said any seizure activity is just migraine related and refused medication refills I've been taking for years, forcing cold turkey withdrawals I may still end up in Urgent Care for. I felt like I was being punished for "lying" about my illness.
All of the office staff is very friendly and attentive.

Well first off, I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone. I went in because of my severe migraines and when the PA came in; all he done was introduce himself and prescribe medicine I have been on before that was not effective. Also I was able to have forms completed for disability info without issue and no costs; and now the office charges out the yang and then I don't get what I requested and paid for.

Dr. took the time to explain the results of my test and terms I could truly understand. I would recommend this doctor to anyone that needed a second opinion are you have to do is take the time to listen

No have ethics. And they are unprofessional.

This doctor shows not interest in seeing the patients. He is not professional and most of the staff lies in your face as if all people are fools. They charge 300.00 dollars for filling a three pages form and request cash payment only. It's a shame that the Medicare and Medicaid enlisted him as a provider. People no matter condition do not deserve to be treated this way . Also saw a staff laughing about an elderly woman. There is not respect and nither conciencie about human dignity Don't go

Was my daughters doctor for almost 2 years never did any test, made her go every month just to add and remove pills, never went to see my daughter in the hospital, not even once in over 10 times. My daughter almost died the last time. If you have epilepsy go to an epileptologist
Overall was great, everyone has a smile on their Face. Especially Frankie the MA.

No one cares about you there. They won't even call you back. They're nasty and they intentionally hang up on you.
The ARNP should be with the patient a little longer but overall my experience was very well.

He hates gays stacks patient on patient Nickel and dime you for tests he preforms at his five offices all overbooked staff is uneducated and salon receptionists could do a better job as for Fernando he got his degree in Peru probably a good indicator of why he didn't like this gringo doesn't listen if your gay or a recovering alcoholic assigns unnecessary medications and when you tell him they make you feel worse he doubles the dose.great guy here folks

DO NOT GO SEE THIS DOCTOR. He tried to charge me $75 dollars to fill out paperwork for my HR department at work. The paperwork consisted of reading a job description and signing off whether or not I could perform my job duties. Total of 3 pages - he refused to read the paperwork during my appointment, claiming he was too busy. Then proceeded to tell me I would have to return (pay another copayment) and also pay HIM a fee for literally doing his job. RIP OFF.
in Orlando, FL |
Unwilling to listen to my partner or myself. Doctor was more interested in listening to the first two symptoms and hanging on that my partner is a recovering alcoholic. Doctor was UNWILLING to listen to anything else we had to say. DO NOT GO SEE THIS DOCTOR. The staff was extreme nice but the doctor, do yourself a favor and find another doctor. There is a reason he has a 1.6 star rating.
in St. Cloud FL |
He was unwilling to listen to me or conduct any further testing. I went to another neurologist who diagnosed me after 2 visits.
in Orlando, FL |
Staff was friendly. I was very nervous going in for the first time. Dr Gonzales was warm and joked with me to put me at ease. He was quick and thorough.
