Dr. Gonzalez's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gonzalez "I grew up in Livonia, Michigan and relocated to East Lansing after my surgical training in Chicago. I enjoy spending time with my wife Diane and our four children (Alec, Jack, Sam & Lily). We enjoy playing sports together (basketball, soccer & golf) as well as running and biking. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gonzalez "Even though I am a podiatric surgeon, I try to exhaust all conservative care prior to recommending surgical intervention. As a runner myself, I like to try to Keep Runners Running. I realize the dedication and planning involved in training for races. "Take Six Weeks Off" is not an option, so I'll work with you to try to get you painfree while still training. 

Our staff is friendly and kind. We hope you stop in and see us. "

I had bunion surgery on both feet at age 63. Dr. Gonzalez was very good about letting you know the details of the whole procedure. I'm glad I had it done and wish I could of found the Dr. sooner. If I have any problems in the future I would definitely go back.

The office staff is very nice and Dr. Gonzalez is a skilled and caring doctor. My mother was seen by him after another podiatrist had suggested amputating her toe. Dr. Gonzalez treated her and amputation was avoided. He also has a great bedside manner!
