May 18, 2020 2:43 PM

Love my doctor!

May 18, 2020 2:43 PM


April 20, 2020 12:55 PM

He is very nice but at times I feel like he think I am overreacting, lets his emotions get in the way, then makes me feel like I can't express my own thoughts.

April 20, 2020 12:55 PM


April 7, 2020 5:13 PM

very informative, and promptly return phone call for test result

April 7, 2020 5:13 PM

Good experience.

January 29, 2020 12:58 PM

He was rushed, didn't ask me any open ended questions, or if there was anything I wanted to talk about. He just ran through his questions & at the end I asked if he was interested in what I had to say, issues I was having, etc...

January 29, 2020 12:58 PM

Rushed, wanted to run through his Q's & get out of there.

January 2, 2020 10:14 AM

Very helpful and informative

January 2, 2020 10:14 AM

Was not greeted when coming into the waiting area for the first time and was not sure where to go or what to do. There was also an issue with some technology during my check in with the receptionist. I was feeling very ill and standing there for a long time (about 10 min) without being told what was going on. I had to tell her that I was sick and needed to sit down. I understand technical issues happen, I just wish she would've been more caring when I was clearly unwell.

December 30, 2019 8:42 AM

The doctor is very attentive and he tells me I do not change medicine, you are well with your sugar says stay the same do not stop taking the medicine thank you

December 30, 2019 8:42 AM

And the young ladies who give us the appointments thank you very attentive.

November 30, 2019 6:27 AM

he always in good spirits and always ask how we feel, takes time to ask about our health, and answers all of our questions . I stay with advocate medical group as long as I can keep doctor Gonzalas for my health provider.

November 30, 2019 6:27 AM

myself and my husband always come out after our visit, feeling we are getting the best of care

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Not client centered he does hierarchical type of care. Will not listen to his patients and asserted I had symptoms that I did not have, even thought I asserted three times that I was not having the symptoms he described. Waste of my time and copay.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

November 10, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Gonzalez was great

October 26, 2018 7:00 PM

I m very happy with his services.

October 22, 2018 7:00 PM

The major concern I had with my doctor and the clinic was that results or concerns were addressed by medical assistance instead of the doctor. The medical assistant didn't have the answers to my questions and instead seemed more like a Know-it-all. I called the clinic several times asking to speak to my doctor and instead was stuck having to speak to his medical assistance and still didn't get my concerns addressed. Instead I was given the response of "give it a couple of weeks to see what happens". To see what happens? I'm having liver pain but lets just wait. until when and why? No answer. I instead made a decision of changing to a different clinic and doctor.

October 19, 2018 7:00 PM
