I came in because of a suspicious mole and a family history of skin cancer. Dr. Gonzalez spent less than 3 minutes in the exam room. He barely looked at the mole, said it wasn't suspicious and that the nurse would be in with a dermatology referral.

The major concern I had with my doctor and the clinic was that results or concerns were addressed by medical assistance instead of the doctor. The medical assistant didn't have the answers to my questions and instead seemed more like a Know-it-all. I called the clinic several times asking to speak to my doctor and instead was stuck having to speak to his medical assistance and still didn't get my concerns addressed. Instead I was given the response of "give it a couple of weeks to see what happens". To see what happens? I'm having liver pain but lets just wait. until when and why? No answer. I instead made a decision of changing to a different clinic and doctor.

I never got a straight answer to my questions. Everything was going to found in the referrals he gave me for colonoscopy, sleep apnea and dermatology. This was supposed to be a "360" exam where the physician would take more than normal time. I complained that there may be heart problems and maybe a ekg should be taken but he was holding the door open and obviously in a rush.

Reviewed on November 29, 2017 6:00 PM

This is the first time I've seen this provider because my provider has retired. I did not feel confident that the provider understood the problem that I have or the medication that I take for its treatment. To be fair, my condition is generally treated by a specialist even though my previous provider who was my doctor for many years seemed to understand the problem thoroughly.
