Dr Gonzalez simply saved and changed my life. He performed a very complicated surgery on me that was 100% successful. He is a wonderful surgeon and doctor and specially a great human being that takes cares of his patients as if they were part of his family.

Great surgeon but be prepared for a long wait any time you want to see him. I am always early to my appointments and the shortest wait I've experienced was 2 hours beyond my scheduled appointment time.

Dr. Gonzalez cares about the whole patient. He is caring and takes time, beyond what I have ever experienced with a surgeon both personally and as a nursing professional for 35 years. He wants to do what is going to give his patients the best quality of life.
