It was literally horrifying p. He tried accusing me of being a drug addict when i shared personal information about my past. I just want justice. I salsa payed for medication that he never refilled. I pray there is justice.

Highest Recommendation. Frustrated by irrational fears of Pain Management Medical Practices I sought out an extraordinary M.D. who would get me. I am a "complex patient." Dr. Gonda, M.D., M.F.T. is a graduate of Harvard College and Stanford Medical School. So what? This man strives for excellence and extends his reach to touch the almost unreachable. Dr. Thomas Gonda, M.D. has been Board Certified and a Psychiatrist and Surgeon. Moreover, this may seem irrelevant but the formal confirmation of a graduated MFT reflects the humility, humanity and deep empathy Dr. Gonda, MD has for his patients to "Do no harm but know harm." If you want a pill mill medical practice you'll need to look elsewhere. Dr. Gonda, MD runs a tight ship where clear boundaries are drawn. Try to game him and you will lose. If you looking for a "pill pusher," you'll need to look elsewhere. Here Dr. Gonda, MD practices medicine not drug dealing. Dr. Gonda MD will get as real and as honest as you are.

Dr Gonda is the only physician that has successfully addresed my condition. His convenient office hours make it easy to schedule appointments. He is easy to talk to and makes it clear that he really cares. He is always prompt and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes in the office. Dr. Gonda encourages me to make positive changes in my life while staying focused on reaching my goals. I wish there were more physicians like him.

He doesn't remember his clients. He took $500 from me for legal documentation for a personal injury case. He ignored my requests for PTSD medication to be called in, and all I received was a "Im sorry, I cant help you" response email.

Dr. Gonda is the only therapist I've been able to stick with long-term. He is extremely open-minded, supportive, and really cares about his patients. He asks questions that lead me to greater insights, and provides encouragement and constructive, solution-oriented advice when I'm faced with issues that seem insurmountable. I've already recommended him to several friends.

Dr. Gonda has been the only therapist I've had who has truly been able to help me. He listens, and is able to help me come to my own conclusions about the troubles I'm going through. I've already recommended him to close friends and family.
