Dr. Gonzalez reminds me of the best doctors of the past. Listen and learn. He actually took the time to get to know me and my concerns. Then, he presented a plan of action, explained the tests involved, and made sure I was comfortable with the plan. Can we clone him?

I liked that he pulled up computer screens that showed the veins in my leg and all that was done during my Aortagram. I particularly liked that he was very detailed and did not seemed rushed. Sad to know I would need some work on my right leg in the near future. Not happy that my foot continues to swell daily. But was relieved to know that the swelling was normal considering all that Dr. Gonzales did during my procedure. I found him very easy to communicate with and did not seemed rushed to walk out the door for his next appointment. He is a very likable Physician.
