    We appreciated everything about today’s visit! The person at the front desk was very helpful with getting our insurance company on the line so that we were able to keep our appointment today. The nurses were very attentive and caring throughout the appointment. They went above and beyond to assure that my son was cared for and as comfortable as possible during today’s visit. As always, Dr. Gonzalez was very thorough and took time to answer all of our questions. We are very grateful for Dr. Gonzalez and his team! Thank you!!
