"Medicine is a perfect fit for me," says Dr. Gonzalez. "I
love people and science and working where I can do the most good. I strive
to make sure patients understand their care so they can live healthier
lives. I also work hard to have open access, so patients can be seen the
same day." Dr. Gonzalez takes pride in getting to know his patients
personally; where they become like family. It is what helps make his career
as a family physician so rewarding.
Married with two children, Dr. Gonzalez enjoys spending quality time with
his family and focusing on two of his great passions – surfing and
Hapkido Karate. With his love of the outdoors and enthusiasm for karate,
it is no surprise Dr. Gonzalez was a member of the UCLA Surf Team and
obtained his black belt in Hapkido.
