Dr Gonzaga is the best provider of any type that I've ever had. She's straightforward, very knowledgeable, caring, and helpful. I wish there were more doctors like her.
Dr. Gonzaga saw me in place of my regular PCP as he was away for my regular appointment. She was very friendly and looked at my history before she came into the exam room. It was easy to respond to her.
Dr G is an amazing PCP. Very practical, reassuring, and a good listener. Super responsive
Dr. Gonzaga is an exceptional PCP. Very caring and in tune with her patients needs. I'm thankful that she's my doctor!
Dr. Gonzaga is always attentive, caring and willing to listen to my concerns. I truly appreciate her knowledge, professionalism and caring nature.
Dr. Gonzaga is the best provider I've ever seen. She always remembers me and my health history, and important details about me. She spends an appropriate amount of time listening to me and talking with me. I never feel rushed. Dr. Gonzaga is thorough and orders necessary tests but doesn't just hand out prescriptions and send me on my way. She's one of the good ones. I am so fortunate to have Dr. Gonzaga as my PCP. The office staff and nurses are stellar, too. :)
it seemed like she didn't care and was in a rush to finish and get out. she didn't answer half of my questions and concerns and went out so quickly that I couldn't talk about all my concerns
i am really fond of Dr. Gonzaga,and her MAZ is always on t of things which is wonderful.

Dr. Gonzaga is absolutely wonderful, and I feel very lucky to have her as my doctor. She is smart, caring, respectful, and has a great sense of humor. She listens very carefully and intently to my concerns, and is very thoughtful in how she answers and addresses them. I feel very cared for when I interact with her, and that I'm in good hands. I can't say enough good things about her, and have recommended her to many friends and colleagues in the area.
Very good care provider!
she is so nice.
Dr. Gonzaga is great if I have any issues, which I always do she tries to resolve the issue. From finding a Dr. that specializes on my issue that would best work with me and my personality. I always praise her cause she never make me feel like just another patient. in my heart I feel like she loves and care about me as a person. which I have doctors before that treat you like a number.
Everyone on staff at Dr. Gonzaga's office, including her, are always courteous and respectful of my needs. I came in beyond the 15 or 20 minutes limits, and the receptionists were kind and helpful and they were able to get me an appointment for the following day. I never felt bad or judged about my tardiness. From the receptionists, the phlebotomist, check-out receptionist and all the way up to Dr. Gonzaga, I am always pleased with my experiences with this practice and I have recommended Dr. Gonzaga in the past because of this.
Dr. Gonzaga is wonderful.
Dr. Gonzaga has been my PCP for well over ten years and I have always been satisfied with the level of care she provides. I always feel that she listens to me, respects me and most of all, cares about me as a person - and I can't even begin to articulate how much that means to me. She's truly an incredible physician and a wonderful person.
I always like going to see Dr. Gonzaga, she's been my PCP for over 10 years.
Dr. Gonzaga is an excellent listener and someone who cares about her patients' well-being. She is warm and friendly and never rushes through appointments. It's not often that you see a physician who clearly enjoys people. Her medical knowledge is impressive and I trust her completely.
I arrived very early for my appointment, and expected to wait, but was taken more than 30 minutes before my scheduled time.
Dr. Gonzaga has been my PCP since January, 2019. I am very happy with her expertise and concern and with the high level of care I have received from her.

She awesome! Always listens and help me when needed!!
Dr. Gonzaga is awesome!
My PCP is GREAT, she always has my best interest at heart,she is z very caring,understanding,smart,wonderful person.I am very happy with hdr.
Dr. Gonzaga is wonderful. I completely trust her as my PCP and have recommended her widely to others. The only thing that I have issues with is that it's very difficult to get appointments to see her (and frankly, all of the UPMC doctors). There are times when I would really like to see my regular doctor, instead of a doctor that doesn't know me or my medical history.
my appointment was for 9:15. A resident finally came to my room at 9:52. I spent about fifteen minutes going over information with the resident that the doctor already knows. Finally the doctor came in for about five minutes. Very disappointing service.
Wait time was 1.5 hours
Dr Gonzaga is a consummate professional. A very pleasant physician.Takes time with patients and is very understanding .
I saw the doctor for the first time, but got a very good impression. She was very thorough and took her time to talk about everything with me.
I love my doctor to the moon and back. She sees me and both of my adult children, one of whom has a chronic health condition and the other who has autism. She is warm, upbeat, compassionate, knowledgeable and CARES. If she left UPMC I would be very, very sad.
Dr. Gonzaga is an excellent doctor and a kind and understanding human being.
Dr. Gonzaga is the best GP I have ever had. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and attentive.
I always feel very respected and cared for by Dr. Gonzaga. She remembers what we talked about at my last visit even though I have been blessed with good health and only see her once a year for routine checkups. She's an excellent physician and I think UPMC is lucky to have her on staff.
very caring and really listened. Great doc
i like my provider very much personally and she is a ver caring provider. however, she often seems very rushed and sometimes it seems like she doesn't check my medical record to remember what she recommended to me.
great care, very attentive, great concern for my wellbeing
My PCP is personable, a great listener, and respects my wishes. She is easy to talk to and is able to connect with people better than most physicians.
My provider is perfect for me and we have built a relationship where I trust her care that she offers.
Dr. Gonzaga is as good as it gets.
Dr. Gonzaga is the best! Always acknowledges that I know my special needs daughter the best and respects my opinions while giving expert advice.
I feel good about having Dr. Gonzaga as my PCP, she makes her patients feel secure.

It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Gonzaga. She is very knowledgeable about my complex medical situation and is very thorough--not just with my medical conditions but with everything going on in my life that might impact my physical or emotional health.
Dr Gonzaga Is, by far, the most thorough and competent doctor I have ever had the pleasure of being treated by. She takes time.. She asks lots of good questions. She can quickly take in lots of info and is thoughtful in her analysis. I feel respected, heard, and empowered to take steps and the direction in which I need. There is no shame. There is only confidence.
I have the best PCP. She dialogues and listens to my questions and or concerns.
This was my second appointment with Dr Gonzaga. When she entered the exam room, she acknowledged my medical problem from the initial visit and asked if the problem had improved. Dr Gonzaga was very attentive to my questions and took the time to answer them. She responded immediately to my test results via My UPMC. I truly appreciated Dr Gonzaga's approach to my care. I was recommended to Dr Gonzaga by a friend and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Love Dr. G! She cares and is a great doctor! She listens and talks to me about different issues! Always make sure I have an interpreter with me if possible and make sure I understand what is going on in our conversation! Would not trade her for all the tea in China or all the money in the world!! Hard to come by, finding a good doctor!

I see her regularly so I appreciate that she does not ask the same questions each visit. She always takes as much time as I need for my visit and I never feel hurried. She shares information with me at my visit and I feel as though we work as a team for my health. She is genuine in her listening, does not do more testing than needed, but is thorough. She has the best interpersonal skills of any general practitioner I've had.
Dr. Gonzaga is a gem. Every time I see her, she treats me with respect, is knowledgeable. I have referred several friends to her.
Dr. Gonzaga is fantastic. Extremely attentive and helpful. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a PCP. She even tracked me down as I was about to get on the elevator, to give me information she couldn't immediately recall during my visit. I've never had another doctor do that. Seriously, she's hands down the best doctor I've ever been a patient of at any UPMC facility.
Seeing Dr. Gonzaga is always a good experience, even when I'm feeling badly. She's encouraging and compassionate. Her care is the best I have received from any PCP.

Dr. Gonzaga is not only a fabulous provider but is a great educator for the students. She efficiently collaborate with her students and does not repeat the same questions that student have already asked me. She builds on information she has already obtained from students' interview. This is quite an art .
