Dr. Peter Gonzalez is very thorough and explains everything very well . He found fractures that other Doctor didn't. He showed me my fractures and explained his concerns. He also was interested in learning the details of how my accident occurred. I couldn't have found a better Doctor.

I was surprised to read some of these comments. i thought the doctor had a good sense of humor. I think there may be confusion with " down to earth / real people, vs. sympathy /pity. i found Dr. Gonzalez's approach to be genuine and straight forward, which I appreciated very much. He was patient; listened to my symptoms/complaints w/out judgement and discussed treatment options very clearly, being certain that i understood clearly before i left. I was very comfortable, unrushed and pleased

As someone who tends to rely on reviews, I was apprehensive to use Dr. Gonzalez. However, after talking to his staff, I listened to my gut and went to have an NCV/EMG Test done. I am HAPPY to say that with the litany of the tests/treatments that I have endured with my Back injury, going to Dr. Gonzalez was BY FAR the easiest. He was attentive, pleasant, engaging, and gentle. The test is said to be painful to many; but I can honestly say that it was LESS painful than Acupuncture. Go see Dr. G!

What an inconsiderate, rude and unprofessional doctor. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. Don't waste your time or money on such an in compassionate doctor. He shouldn't be practicing medicine if he doesn't care about getting to the root of your problem. And then pointed to my age on the paperwork and told me that's why I have pain. Shame on you Dr. I wouldn't let you see my dog.

Dr. Gonzalez is caring and patient. He spent time during the appointments explaining my problem and treatment options. My pain improved after physical therapy and injections and has allowed me to get back to the things I enjoy.
in Jackson, NJ |
If I could give him 1/2 of a star I would. He was extremely dismissive regarding my complaints. Had a totally condescending way about him. Almost like he didn't believe the amount of pain I was in. I really wish I would have read these reviews first before allowing them to schedule me with him. This is the second doctor at this practice that has dismissed my complaints. Why? Because I don't have a broken bone you can do surgery on?? I'll save my time and money and go somewhere else!
