Make an Appointment


Dr. Gonzalez chose to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology because she enjoys the unique combination of primary care, surgery and delivering babies. Working at a charity clinic in Peru early in her career showed her the true meaning of altruism and the art of caring for people. She loves seeing women transition from young women into mothers. “There is deep connection and trust between a physician and a patient,” Dr. Gonzalez explains. “I strive to be a force of calm energy for my patients. We’re all part of an important mission.” Dr. Gonzalez, a native of New Jersey, met her husband after moving to California. They have two children.

Patient Reviews

September 20, 2022
I very much didn't enjoy the fact that my nexplanon implant was pushed much further into my arm before it being removed, as well as being cut into more than I should have been. The nurse who was present was a real sweetheart, made my visit 10x more enjoyable.

Dr. Gonzalez took the time to listen and answer all my questions and address my worries. She is the type of doctor that patients know that they are receiving the best care. I am so thankful for her.

It was a waste of office visit. I was given the same options all over again, very little sympathy and attention to the pain I'm feeling. I'm very upset that my co pay was $100 for some birth control, which if she would've been detailed to my file, she would've known I had that already. Basically sent me home to figure it out on my own after I expressed how uncomfortable and how Much pain I have felt.

Everyone was very nice, I was just surprised to see that the restroom was not clean and I was probably the 2nd or 3rd patient of the day. That is something cleaning crew is not keeping up with I assume. Thank you.

The message I want to leave is to say thank you to Dr. Gonzalez, the person who took care of me at the clinic. They were very kind, as was the doctor, very attentive, helpful. I just wanted to leave this comment because in the first few questions I pressed 2 because I thought that was the only response. But it would definitely by a 4. On a scale from 1 to 10, she is a 10. Everyone is excellent. Thank you so much.

The provider is amazing, she always makes me feel comfortable
December 16, 2021
The staff at this office is very unprofessional, excluding the doctor/provider. The receptionists are rude and talk smack about the patients when they leave. The office also does not call back patients. This provider, unfortunately, seems to never have availability and the staff is always very rude about it. The staff has also lied to me saying the doctor was out but when I finally saw her she said she was never out of the office. Overall amazing provider but horrible office staff.
December 14, 2021
I enjoy the service I received from the provider /Doctor and the stuff.
December 09, 2021
I was seen the very quickly in regards to my appointment. There wasn't a lot of waiting everyone. Everyone took the necessary precautions in regards to the covid-19 precautions. Upon meeting Dr. Gonzales, she was very friendly. She's very efficient. Let me be involved in my planning in my care and also, very welcoming. I appreciate her and her service, and also, her nurse [name removed] was very friendly as well and offered lots of information and provided me with all my options and everything about how my treatment and course would look. So I'm very appreciative of that.

This is my second time seeing Dr. Gonzalez. This is the best OB/GYN I've been to in my 30 year history of seeing PIH OB/GYNs. She listens, doesn't dismiss, and addresses concerns. All in a very timely session. I recommend Dr. Gonzalez to all my female friends.

I am very glad the Dr. Leslie came into see me when I was hospitalized back in January 2021. I have since been to see her and feel very confident and comfortable with the care that she delivers. The office staff is very friendly and courteous, which is much needed during these trying times. Thank you, [PHI removed]

Friendly and informative
November 02, 2021
This was my first time here after having to transfer care. I felt the dr was nice however she did not ask if I had questions, concerns ect. I also felt the front office was a bit rude. They just gave me an apt without even asking if I could make it and then were bothered that it didn't work for me. Overall probably my worst PIH experience ever.
November 01, 2021
