"Was ok"
Mar. 3, 2021
"Dr. Gonzalez kept eye to eye contact throughout the visit. He explained the results of the x-rays to me and the course of treatment/POC, which would include a wrist brace. I never felt as if he was rushing me through, although it was an impromptu visit on my part. He demonstrated concern and compassion, offering me a note for work (to wear a brace) and indicated I should f/u with him in 4 weeks. He discussed with me when I could begin moving the wrist, as well as reviewing the healing timeline. He also inquired about my work, and discussed with me precautions to take. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Gonzalez to others."
