I had pulmonary rehab sessions at his office and received a bill for $160.00. The bill showed a total and it was not itemized, I called his of office and the billing department for itemized billing and was told that they would not send one to me. I called Kaiser and they told me the same thing, I wrote a letter to the office manager and to Dr. Gonzales about the billing without a response. His office sent the bill to a collection agency and was told that my credit was damaged. George Held

When a nurse is making the (incorrect) diagnosis because the doctor is not in the office. Bad doctor!

My experience with Dr. Gonzales himself was fine. In my opinion, however, he has the rudest staff of any doctor's office I have patronized. They told me that I had canceled when in fact the doctor called in sick. They simply denied that he had ever done that. Now they have sent me to collections for $6.66, despite the fact that I never received a bill from them for that.

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had. The staff is the problem. Phones calls are not returned and then when you finally get to speak to someone the excuses start flying. Nothing but alot of excuses and never a resolution. Their delay in following thru on referrals causes months delay in even getting an appt. After an inital visit the staff said the doctor must have forgotten to push the save button so there were no orders or details of my visit. Absolutely no confidence!!
