Dr. Gonzalez is a phenomenal psychiatrist and is clearly passionate about his work. He has a genuine interest in his patients and spends time listening to you during each session. He has a very calm and personable demeanor that helps create a safe space. He appears to use meds as a tool to help you get to where you need to be to do the real work and, if appropriate, will discuss the reduction or discontinued use of meds at some point. His approach is far different to the 10-15 minute pill pushing sessions I've received from previous psychiatrists!  Dr. G is interested in your overall health and how it all connects to your mental wellness. He takes into consideration your eating and exercise habits, the vitamins and supplements you take and your blood test results. He is accessible between appointments. I can send a quick message and receive a prompt reply from him directly within hours - sometimes mere minutes. Appointments are easily made and rescheduled. Billing is simple.

After a decade of different treatments and Drs., Dr Gonzalez is the first one that I felt was truly trying to help me. Dr Gonzalez has always been easy to talk to and has literally helped me change my life. I would and have recommended him to friends.

Dr. Gonzalez was able to help me with a problem I had with my medication that I had been struggling with for years. With a few simple changes he helped change my day to day life. I’m very appreciative to have had him as my doctor.

After five years of going without a Psychiatrist, Dr. Gonzales came to the rescue. During our very first appointment, Dr. Gonzales was able to identify and diagnose what over thirty years of other doctors could not. His clarity on my new diagnosis gave me hope that I could finally be on a path to recovery. He prescribed a new medication and a therapy plan we would follow together. After the first three weeks, I was already feeling alive and ready to rejoin life. A few months past and through both Dr. Gonzales’ therapy and the new medication he prescribed, everyone in my life noticed a complete shift in my ability to now be present and engaged in my life. Dr. Gonzales has now been seeing me for over two amazing years, within those two years he has been able to accomplish what four prior Psychiatrists could not over thirty years. Dr. Gonzales is a brilliant doctor, he’s genuine, an excellent listener, empathetic and kind!

Dr. Gonzalez was the only Dr. out of the many I had met with over a 2 year period that was able to make me well again. I was a huge skeptic of many of his methods but feeling hopeless I put my faith in his advice and I am so very glad that I did. I first started seeing the Dr. about a year and a half ago and literally after the first 90 days my anxiety and depression began to lift....shortly thereafter it was complete obliterated. It has been well over a year now that I have felt as good as I have ever felt and though I was the one who applied the patience and did the work....without the Dr.'s knowledge and guidance I undoubtedly feel I would never be as well as I am today. I am so very grateful to the Dr. for his care and so very happy to be able to write this honest review.

Dr. Gonzalez is a great doctor who takes his time to get to know you during the initial assessment in order to provide quality care and service. He provides me with brief follow ups where he checks in to see how I'm responding to my medications and shows genuine interest in my wellbeing. I feel comfortable talking to and seeing Dr. Gonzalez via telehealth and I also feel peace knowing if I ever need him, I can reach out to him and receive a response in a timely manner. Thank you for being wonderful and for the service you and your team provide to the Coachella Valley.

I have long had issues with anxiety and depression, as well as a long history of addiction (sober for 17 years). Being sober obviously helped, but it really just brought other issues to the forefront. I've worked with a variety of people in the past, which has helped, but Dr. Gonzalez seems to have a more practical approach, with actual tools I was (and am still) able to use in a variety of situations. More than just talking, there was action. Because of my addiction issues, I was fearful of any medication, but once I established trust with him, I was willing to try. I really feel it elevated my ability to test these new tools in ways that I believe (and hope) will be permanent changes for my future. Dr. Gonzalez was challenging, at times (likely in the best possible way). I genuinely feel he helped me more than any previous professional individual ever has. I saw him weekly for about a year and would continue to do so, but I relocated. A huge thumbs up. Thank you, Doctor Doc!
