Dr. Gonzalez is a caring and knowledgeable urologist. When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer over two years ago, I was impressed with how he guided me through my course of treatment which included surgery and adjuvant radiation. I continue to see him every six months to make sure I remain cancer free. He has my highest recommendation.

I am a 70 year old male that saw Dr. Gonzalez for an elevated PSA in 2019. I appreciated his conservative and thorough approach to diagnosing my issue. He reviewed and performed various testing procedures, which indicated that a biopsy of the prostate was warranted. The biopsy indicated the presence of prostate cancer. He patiently and thoroughly reviewed the various options to deal with the cancer. I chose to have a robotic radical prostatectomy, which Dr. Gonzalez performed at Blake Medical Center in February 2020. The surgery was a complete success and my post op PSA was 0.0. I highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez. He is a knowledgeable, caring physician and a skilled surgeon. David P. April 27, 2020

I'm a 61 year old male with a sudden inability to urinate. In the emergency room a catheter was placed to drain my bladder. Later on, I met Dr. Gonzalez in his office. He was very thorough in his explanation of my issue and helped me understand my options. I felt he was conservative but thorough. He did a few diagnostic exams to rule out cancer and infections. He then performed a small operation to reduce my prostate gland to a more appropriate size. It went well without major issues and I was counseled on the expectations. Once the catheter was out I was a happy man. It's been several months since having the TURP done. Dr. Gonzalez never made me feel rushed, answered my questions and never spoke over me. I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel cared for.

I appreciated what he did for me. Ultimately, I was treated at Moffitt Cancer Center where Dr. Gonzalez trained and had connections. He was informative and helped me get my surgery sooner. Now I follow up with him for surveillance of my bladder cancer.

I was having a UTI almost every month and everyone told me it was normal! Dr Gonzalez listened and found a bladder stone! I didn’t even know you could make stones there! After he took care of it I’ve been fine- no more UTIs!!!

I recently had a Urolift procedure. Throughout the pre-process testing and evaluation, Dr. Gonzalez took the time to fully inform me about Urolift and alternatives and answered all of my questions, allowing me to make a well-informed decision to proceed with Urolift. The procedure was performed flawlessly by Dr. Gonzalez at Riverwalk ASC in Bradenton. After my follow-up visit, I have been able to discontinue taking Flomax and I am completely satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Gonzalez!

Dr. Gonzalez was extremely patient and thorough in explaining issues I was having, always explained (unbiased) alternative treatment options, he truly took the time with me to make sure that I was understanding the information he was provided me with. Being a female, honestly I was a little apprehensive / nervous prior to meeting with Dr. Gonzalez. The minute I met him, his charisma and sincere care for his patients put my mind right at ease, knew without a doubt that I was in the right hands.

Dr. Gonzalez is a true physician. I was recently diagnosed with cancer- Dr. Gonzalez spent the time with me to explain the treatment needed and calm my nerves. He made me feel very comfortable in a time of stress and uncertainty. Excellent bedside manner. Excellent staff. Would recommend anyone with a urologic problem go see him.

Dr. Gonzalez is undeniably the best doctor I have had the pleasure of meeting in a long time. Some Urology issues can be very intimidating, and personal, and he honestly made me feel at ease with everything. His charismatic personality makes you feel like a friend or even a family member. His knowledge of his trade is remarkable, he was able to explain everything to me in a manner that was actually understandable. I honestly would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Gonzalez to anyone, thank you!!
