FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What about urgent appointments?
If your pediatrician feels your child needs to be seen right away, please have him or her call us to discuss the case. We might decide to start some tests in advance of the appointment, or schedule.
Dr. Gonzalez Simon is one of the best doctors I have been to for my child. We were able to get an appointment within the week for our daughter. She was great interacting with our 3 year old and took the time to try to make her comfortable during the exam. She was also patient with us and took the time to answer all of our questions during the appointment. We did not feel rushed and she explained everything to us clearly. She makes you feel like she is really listening to you. Dr Gonzalez Simon is very knowledgable and excellent with her medical skills.
Another thing - I can actually call up Dr. Gonzalez to ask questions and she'll ANSWER! What a concept, right? A doctor that is actually responsive. Not her office assistants, not her nurse, but her. I called her up to update her on my daughters progress, and she spent time talking to me about her condition, and it was really nice to hear her tell me her medical opinion.
I have recommended her to all of my family and friends. She is a wonderful physician and we are so happy that we have her for our child's care.
