About Helena C. Gonzalez, MD

  • Dr. Gonzalez is married, and in her free time she enjoys spending time with her family. She also loves to travel and the opportunity to learn about different cultures. In addition, Dr. Gonzalez enjoys going to the park, jogging, and cooking.

I enjoy working with children and being an advocate for their physical, mental, and emotional health. My goal is to create a partnership with each family and be present during the challenging moments as well as the fun ones.

4.9out of 5
  • January 25, 2023

    Dr. Gonzalez was very patient explaining my toddler son’s situation and what might be going on. She took the time to explain what she was recommending, what to expect and possible next steps. I really appreciate Dr. Gonzalez’s thoroughness, expertise and tender care. I was nervous about my son’s condition going in, and I was grateful Dr. Gonzalez helped us! Thank you.
