My first visit with Dr. Gomez was to get a third opinion on treating my knee after seeing two other orthopedists who had given me completely different plans of treatment. Dr. Gomez has an honest, no-nonsense approach to care. After giving me several options we are taking a conservative approach until he feels that I may need to have surgery. He is knowledgeable and explains things in a clear, concise manner. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Gomez and his staff provided stellar medical care and provided excellent customer service. Once diagnosed, my condition was explained, questioned were answered, a treatment plan was developed and I was linked to aftercare. — Thank you!

In his notes, referred to me as waddling while walking with a cane. ?ot much empathy for someone who has had R A for 20 years. Also seemed put out by me saying I would not return because of the poor accessibility of the office. To get from the parking lot to the entry you must walk a long ramp which is difficult in good weather and extremely intimidating in cold, rainy weather and more than a challenge for a disabled person. A strange choice for an orthopedic office. Over all it was more like visiting a factory than a health care facility.

Dr. Gomez is very knowledgeable concerning my knee. He listens to me with with my concerns and spends time with his patients. He does not rush you out of his office quickly so that he can rush to his next patient. I have been seeing Dr. Gomez for many years for knee problems and definitely respect his expertise.

Dr. Gomez and his staff are fantastic! He is patient, knowledgable, takes his time, and doesn't make you feel like he's rushing you out the door. The knee I had surgery on is as good as new, and I recently went back to see him about my other knee. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

I am a fan of Dr. Gomez. He was polite and listened and explained everything clearly. The wait was maybe 5-7 minutes and the visit was long enough for me to feel like I was heard and cared for. I does speak quickly, but I don’t mind because he was clear about my injury and the way forward. I was very happy with the entire process.

I waited 1.5 hrs to see Dr. Gomez for a scheduled appt. His visit with me including his assesment lasted 4 minutes and that's being generous! He walked out of the room without asking if I had any questions-which I did. I would only recommend him if you are looking for a fast talking and abrupt physician who is an expert at providing speedy assessments. Hard to picture him operating on someone. I will cancel my follow up appointment and seek another orthopedic doctor.

Upon arrival I was seen within 6-8 minutes. Dr. Gomez is a very uplifting, pleasant, and knowledgable doctor. The purpose of visit was to discuss results of an MRI which he did in an extremely professional matter which he made certain I understood. I've known Dr. Gomez for many years and his knowledge is always something I depend on. I would highly recommend him. Art DiPaola April 23,2019

I arrived early and was immediately checked in and taken to an exam room. The visit was seamless from initial nurse information intake, xray series, and examination by Dr. Gomez. He is a competent and knowledgeable orthopedic doctor. I have complete trust in his diagnostic capabilities, and surgical (if ever needed in the future). It is rare to find such compassion and patient care empathy in such a seasoned physician today. Younger doctors have a lot to learn from him!
