I felt very confident that Dr. Gonzalez was very knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He did a good job of explaining the condition and possible treatments. The only reason I gave him a "9" is that this is my first experience with this condition and I don't have a point of reference. :)

Dr. Gonzales is AMAZING! He is always friendly, shows concern, and asks the most accurate questions. It is also refreshing to clearly see the excitement he has even talking about the heart and the different procedures. He is most certainly doing what he was created to do!
