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.

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.

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.

October 15, 2021
Provider was caring and interested to know about me and my concerns. She explained the procedures in detail.
October 04, 2021
I really love seeing Dr. Gonzalez. She was very understanding. She understood exactly what I needed. One thing that I did not like was the appointment took me a month and a half to get an appointment. That's pretty bad. But otherwise, she had great service. I loved her, and I will be going back to her.

September 30, 2021
The secretaries at the front desk were very nice & patient as I signed in . When it was time to see Dr. Gonzalez she allowed me to explain all my symptoms, I didn't feel like my appointment was rushed I felt she really cared about my situation and tried to help me in the best way she could. I really appreciate it because not all doctors take their time with you.

Well in walking in the facility was nice and clean the staff that greeted us was very friendly and kind and the Dr. Gonzalez was excellent from when she walked in she sat down and made herself completely available to us made us feel very comfortable with her and since we were there for my daughter as a mother I truly like it and the fact that my daughter and I asked questions and the Doctor patiently answered them I am truly glad we chose her and this facility. Thank you
June 28, 2021
Very kind and caring MD
June 22, 2021
Very conscientious and addressed my concerns effrctively.
June 18, 2021
Just to inform a patient that it is strongly suggested to make an appt for lab rather than walk in.
June 15, 2021
Dr. Heard the concerns and did whatever was necessary.
June 03, 2021
I am very comfortable with this doctor. Staff very courteous. Appointment scheduled time was right on target. High marks for that alone! Never had a zero wait on an appointment at any other office. Ever.
June 01, 2021
I had the same Obgyn for 2 decades and I was very apprehensive but Dr González was very warm, welcoming and patient. She answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns.
May 25, 2021
The staff in the front was very friendly as I walked in, they greeted me and helped me out right away. The nurse and Dr were very friendly and helpful. The dr listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions, I did not feel rushed she really took her time to take care of me.
May 18, 2021
The visit was great and all my questions were answered. However, it took about a month to get an appointment for my first visit.
May 13, 2021
Dr. Gonzalez is a caring dr and I feel very fortunate to be under her care. She's focused, professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She is an asset to PIH!
May 10, 2021
Leslie was informative and made me feel comfortable. The staff was great too.
May 10, 2021
I am so pleased to have an OB/GYN again! I have not had one for many years due to the fact I had a total hysterectomy and didn't think I needed one, however it is great having a woman that I can chat with about all of my female needs! Dr. Gonzalez is warm, friendly, compassionate and it feels like you have known her for years! I am very pleased with my new doctor and thank PIH for yet another fantastic experience!
April 28, 2021
I was not told when to follow up , or when will ai be checked again due to my symptoms. I had to ask nurse about that. Also, my diagnosis was not clear.
April 23, 2021
Dr.Gonzalez was very professional and easy to talk to. She explained my diagnosis in terms that I can understand. It was my first time meeting her and I will definitely return to her office for future care.
April 05, 2021
Everyone was very professional and excellent customer service.
March 31, 2021
I am very satisfied with the care and attention of Dr. Gonzalez. There is only one thing that must be improved. The answering phone system. I have had to be on hold for more than 30 min to speak to someone. If I choose the option to be called back, I will not receive the call back. The answering system will state and "x" amt of minutes but that is always incorrect. I am very disappointed with this part of the whole experience when contacting this office.
March 29, 2021
The physician Gonzalez was great. Office staff was rude and not carrying. No customer service. They are blank and not sensitive at all.
March 26, 2021
The doctor made me feel very comfortable to ask any questions and she answered them and left me very satisfied. Thank you.
March 24, 2021
The office staff is giving masks to the patients and they don't wear no gloves they touch the phone and touch the computer and then grab the mask to give to the patient. My suggestion would to purchase masks that are individually in a plastic wrapping or have one person giving them masks changing their gloves in between patients, without touching everything while handling out masks. Not very sanitary.
March 18, 2021
Provider great, front office staff not so much.
March 15, 2021
Dr. Gonzalez was very professional, respectful,very easy to talk to and I would definitely recommend her to any of my female family members and female friends.
March 12, 2021
I am happy, that after so many years, it was necessary for us to have a gynecologist-OB / GYN, (female) more confident, talk safely and widely. She is also a great professional in all aspects: loves what she does, has the aptitude, It gives security to the patient, and above all she explains and gives you that peace of mind at the time of the consultation. It is complete.
March 10, 2021
Thank you for being attentive with my daughter and making her feel comfortable and safe. Thank you. Bye bye.

February 25, 2021
The office staff did not check me on and said I left when clearly I wrote my name on the sign list . I spoke up saying I was here the whole time waiting to be called. I waited 30 minutes to be called . They where to busy talking to each other instead of checking me in . Only one staff member spoke up about checking me in and it was Dr. Gonzalez nurse she was nice and helpful.
February 22, 2021
She is awesome. Very gentle with my Pap smear. Some all women hate. He listens and is very thorough. Thank you
February 17, 2021
She's a very nice doctor I never see.
February 16, 2021
Dr. Gonzalez is so important and she's very very nice. She explained everything to me exactly what needed to be done and she asked me if I had any questions and the questions that I asked were just just what I'll need. She's the best.

The doctor is very kind and listened to my concerns. I am glad they have such professionals on their team.
January 18, 2021
The people (office staff and doctor) were great. No complaints. Trying to get through to make an appointment-a nightmare. Tried about 3 times before I made it through. Your phone system is woefully lacking.
January 15, 2021
I congratulate you on your time.
January 11, 2021
There's a lot of improvement to be done with the administration up at the front reception. The ladies checking in are not very respectful or courteous and their knowledge doesn't seem to be the best either. Questions we're not answered and they just speak in a rude tone. It was not a very pleasant experience.
January 06, 2021
Everyone is so nice and attentive
January 05, 2021
Really positive. Dr. Gonzalez took me seriously and answered all my questions. I appreciate that given it's such sensitive area of concern.
January 05, 2021
Dr. Gonzalez is seriously the BEST doctor I've ever had, she's gone multiple times above and beyond to make sure Ive gotten the care I need. I'm so fortunate to have such an amazing and talented doctor
