Dr. Gonzales is simply the best. His approach is just right, never overdone and his bedside manner is exceptional. My family has been with Dr. Gonzales for nearly 10 years. From helping my kids control breakouts to helping me maiShow morentain a youthful appearance with various spaced out treatments such as botox, filler, and laser treatments to remove sun damage and increase collagen production, his less is more approach helps me look refreshed without having an artificial overdone look. Dr. Gonzales also treated an unsightly scar on my neck I had from a cervical disc surgery that made me very self conscious. Within a few sessions of treatment the scar was erased and is no longer something that makes me feel uncomfortable. Its always a great compliment to have others tell me I “still look the same” or that I look “refreshed”. I couldn’t be more grateful to Dr. Gonzales for his skill, time and professionalism. I have recommended him to many friends who are just as pleased with his care as I am and will continue to do so.
I feel like I won the doctor lottery with Dr. Gonzales! He was refereed to me by my primary and I was able to get an initial appointment quickly and without hassle - much better than the NINE MONTHS I had to wait for a different Show moredermatologist. His office runs smoothly and on time. In fact, I make it out most visits before I even have to pay for parking. Everyone is extremely friendly in the office. Dr. Gonzales is quick, but efficient with his visits. He takes the time to answer your questions and ensure your comfort, but keeps everything moving and on schedule. Great communication before, during, and after the visit. Seriously, he’s a total find!
