Dr. Gonzales and team were excellent on my shoulder surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Gonzales for orthopedic surgery!

Dr. Gonzales is a rockstar. He performed a labrum tear shoulder repair on our son after his 2nd dislocation. Surgery and recovery was amazing. He's now back playing lax and is totally 100%. Rotation, strength... all of it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr G. If there was a sixth star I would give it to him. My son is currently 5A points leader among freshman middies... and a little while ago I thought he'd never play again. Truly an outstanding surgeon.

Always professional, patient, and thorough.

Joel has now repaired my biceps (r) tendon ('07) and reattached my completely torn pectoral (r) muscle ('17). Not only do Joel and his entire surgical team do a great job, but his office staff runs a tight ship too. Appointment times are met, wait-times are short and all insurance paperwork is submitted correctly. Overall, the entire experience with Orthopedic Associates is first class!

Meeting Gonzales was great he is so nice. He took the time in explained everything to me about my knee and made me feel very comfortable.

Earlier this year, I tore the ACL in my left knee while snowboarding. Dr. Gonzales diagnosed and repaired it. He was extremely friendly and optimistic throughout the process, which helped me through a challenging situation. He's an extremely competent surgeon and I never doubted his advice, whether it was about the surgery itself or when I could start doing different activities again in the months thereafter. I would highly recommend Dr. Gonzales to anyone seeking treatment for a knee injury.

Dr. Gonzales and his staff do a great job. He performed a partial medial meniscectomy on my right knee on December of 2014 and I have still be able to run and hike. In fact, this spring I ran a half marathon. He also performed a AC joint arthritis surgery on my left shoulder that has done great. I've referred numerous clients to him and all have been very pleased.

Kimberly Breneman in the last week Dr. Gonzales and Keith S., PA-C were second to none in providing compassionate and specialized care. I injured/broke my leg on 12-23-15 and Dr. Gonzales and his team were able to get me in last minute the morning of Christmas Eve. Dr. G and Keith, PA-C were both attentive and superb in diagnosing/treating my condition. I was immed seen by Radiology and had a CT performed. Dr G read the results immediately after and completed a f/u appt on the spot in efforts to
