At first, I thought my experience with John Gonzalez M.D. Orthopedic Medical Group of Riverside may have been an anomaly. But after reading reviews I found comfort in knowing that I was not alone.
Dr. John Gonzalez, if you can even call him doctor, has less people skills than a chimpanzee. Not only is he rude but he ignores the patients input entirely.
He clearly suffers from a superiority complex and feels that anyone that doesn’t possess a post graduate degree is beneath him.
I was giving him insight on how labor intensive my job was and that I wanted to be as close to 100% as possible before returning to work.
He got up and proceeded to walk out of the room, stops in the doorway and with his back turned to me says; “Did you ever stop to think that the reason you have this job is because you are uneducated?”
I was floored and felt humiliated. Yet, I was at his mercy since he writes the work off orders.
I’m still in extreme pain. My injury is load bearing and he released me back to work against my wishes. I have since exercised my right to a second opinion, especially since his is worthless.
His assistant will never return your calls so don’t even bother as they are just as rude as him.
Dr. John Gonzalez is extremely arrogant and rude. I’m so glad that I can share this experience with another former patient that understands that Gonzalez is a nightmare and shouldn’t be practicing medicine.
Apparently the saying “treat people the way you would like to be treated” was lost on him. If he has a wife and kids, I can only imagine the torment and misery he has more than likely inflicted upon them.
He is a miserable excuse for a human being, never have I ran into a nastier person and that says a lot. Something is wrong with him.
