Boca Raton, FL |
He's a very good doctor. He did a surgery on my son and we were very happy with the results.. He was very attentive and very knowledgeable. He found that my son has a hernia which other doctors we went to earlier did not have any idea about. I'd highly recommend him.

Went in for a circumcision for my 1 month old, the procedure was supposed to take 5 mins, it ended up taking longer. After 20 mins or so I was without my child, unaware of what was going on. Found out it was a bad cut and they stitched him! Keep in mind they only numb the area and its superficial and he couldn't eat for 2 hours, plus another 30 to wait for the doctor. It was like pulling teeth to find out what happened. My infant was traumatized and 3 days later he still cries out of the blue sc

Had him do a prosthetic testicle implant when I was underage. It rejected due to infection, which was prolonged by the doctor telling us that it will go away. It didn't. It literally tore a hole in my scrotum where I could visibly see the prosthesis. He removed it, let me heal for a year, and my smart self went back to him because according to him there would be no additional costs. We still had to pay the deductible and now I need corrective surgery because he put it in too deep. Great job.

Our initial meeting was fine but the day of my son's procedure, he non existent. He popped in for a second to tell us we were next after another patient and that was the last interaction we had with him. He never came to speak with us after the procedure, even when we requested to speak with him and waited an hour to do so.

We took our month old baby boy for a circumcision since the hospital did not want to do it when he was born. Dr. Gosalbez was very informative and gave us instructions to have an excellent healing process and to have our baby as comfortable as possible.
