why if we have an appointment we still have to wait about 20 minutes after that appointment to be seen.

Overall with Dr. Gonzalez. I had a very good experience. The only concern of mine was at the end of the appointment where she diagnosed my son with having. Very very close to. Well. My son was pretty much diagnose with. A little bit of anemia and she just said that that was it. And never really told us what, how we can follow up with giving him treatment or when she could see him again. Too... Do a blood test or something, to make sure that it was going to go away and that everything was being taken care of. But aside from that everything with Dr. Gonzalez was good.

We love our pediatrician! Dr. Gonzalez is so kind and respectful. She's cautious with diagnosing and makes referrals when needed. I'm glad we have her!

Love Dr Gonzalez and her staff. They provided fantastic service to my daughter in addition, they educated her on her body and what to look for.

I really appreciate that Dr. S. Gonzalez stopped to explain what she was going to do and be looking for before examining my daughter. It made all the difference in feeling as comfortable as possible for a teen. She was kind, attentive, and considerate.

I really appreciated the patience and understanding of the nurse that gave my daughter her shots. She was really scared and anxious, and our nurse was so kind. I really think her attitude influenced how well my daughter did with her shots.

The doctor was very presumptive and asked questions that did not pertain to the visit and made comments that were inappropriate

Very courteous staff, clean rooms, everyone was pleasant.

My daughter was disappointed that Dr. González didn't give her a gift. This was her 6 year wellness appointment and was looking forward to a book from the doctor.

Dr. Gonzalez is a wonderful caring doctor who knows how to interact with my children, putting them at ease, and knows how to explain medical issues in layman's terms.

We did not have to wait more than 10 minutes to be attended.
April 12, 2021
Staff was very nice. Two staff came into the room to do initial assessment before the doctor. This made me feel very rushed as they were both asking questions and asking me to undress my baby while one checked vitals on my baby and the other asked questions. Doctor forgot to send a medication to the pharmacy. I called clinic and was told they would call me back. They called me a day later to tell me antibiotics were sent to my pharmacy. I had already seen on the medical record earlier that day that the medication was ordered. Staff can improve the communication while the doctor can ensure all medications are sent.

Dr Gonzalez was condescending when making "suggestions" about what I do with my daughter. She was not understanding and came off very judge mental.

Please change the attitude of the receptionist at the entrance. Thank you.

Love how there's never a wait time! Everyone is respectful from when we check in with front office until we check out with the doctor!
January 20, 2021
I've always had a great experience when I go into the office for my baby's shots. However I wish there was an easier way like emailing pictures straight to doctor to get responses of anything that causes an alarm to me. Sometimes the time to get ahold of a nurse advisor is way to long. But love going in nurses are nice and respectful Dr is awesome.

Friendly, patient, good listener and provided everything that was needed
September 30, 2020
I liked that the doctor took the time to make my daughter feel comfortable with her. Normally my daughter is crying because the masks seem to scare her, but this doctor took the time to make her feel comfortable by pretending to aide me (mom) first then aiding patient (daughter) allowing patient to understand that nothing was going to happen to her.
