The office staff is very nice and welcoming and the office itself is bright and comfortable. I've never had to wait very long. Dr. Gonzalez spends time with you, not rushing to get to the next patient, and is meticulous in her exams. I recommend her to everyone looking for a dermatologist.

I would not recommend this dr Mercedes Gonzales . Very unprofessional and not personable. My daughter had a hemangioma and she was an alarmist about it and made me feel horrible . Second visit dr Gonzalez seemed completely uninterested did not even measure the hemangioma and was rude and unprofessional. Will not return

I had initially gone to Dr Gonzalez for my daughter's eczema. She is very gentle and not intimidating to children. She is only a phone call away. in desperate flare ups, she has walked me thru steps to bring relief to my daughter, even when we changed dermatologist and it had been 2 yrs since we'd seen her,she was ready to give us her valued expert advise over the phone. Thank you Dr Gonzalez!!!

My son was seen by Dr. Gonzalez for eczema. We've been to many dermatologist in the past that did not resolve his rash. Dr. Gonzalez properly diagnosed and treated him to where his skin today is eczema free. The staff is very accommodating and I like the fact that she sees parents as well!

Our family had a wonderful experience at Dr. Gonzalez's office! She was very knowledgeable and personable. She took her time and answered all our questions without feeling rushed. She is probably the only Dermatologist in Miami where you will see the Doctor not a PA or Nurse, your wait is reasonable and the staff is friendly! I highly recommend her!!

Dr. Gonzalez and her staff were all very welcoming. I had a concern with a mole and Dr. Gonzalez decided to check over all of my skin to make sure there were no other locations of concern. She took a biopsy of my lesion and sent it off to pathology. I was notified with the results within a week and she explained the results thoroughly. I never felt rushed or as if my concerns were not important. Her staff was also very knowledgeable. I would recommend Dr. Gonzalez to anyone with skin problems.

After identifying the infection on my child's skin on the first visit by swab test, this doctor prescribed inappropriate treatment which prolonged the infection unnecessarily. On the follow up visit this doctor misidentified this infection as something else and prescribed a $1,200 cream that ended up irritating the skin and making it worse for my child. I eventually did a blood test (another doctor ordered it) which answered all the questions- she should have ordered the test to begin with.
