Three weeks ago my husband was taken to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center with severe abdominal pain. Dr.Gonzale was the surgeon on call. He said my husband needed emergency surgery for a perforated intestine. He performed the surgery and he seemed to be doing well so he was sent home after 10 days. Two days later he began vomiting, he was readmitted and kept for four more days. Last Wednesday the doctor released him but before we left the hospital he began to vomit again, the nurse called the doctor and was told if he vomited he next day we could call his office. Three hours after we arrived home he began screaming in pain. We called an ambulance, he was stat flighted to Louisville, surgery performed for a perforation at the site where his intestine was reattatched. He is now in Louisville in CCU on life support, with drains draining the feces and infection from his stomach cavity and is just barely hanging on to life. So please do not entrust your loved ones to him. I can't save our family from the consequences of allowing him to perform surgery, but I pray I can keep someone else from going through the hell we are tonight.

He did a minor surgery on me to remove glass that was sewn into my arm after being sewed up after the ER doctor didn't clean the laceration I received properly. He didn't get it all and to this day, 3 years later I continue to have problems with it. I'll be having to have the surgery done again.

I was operated on by Dr Gonzales in 2008 for an emergency perforated ulcer. He removed 3/4ths of my stomach using a very antiquicated method frowned upon by most GI doctors. I spent until 2012 in severe pain. I am unable to absorb any vitamins from food due to the surgery and eating at all is an adventure I only risk once a day. I did not find out until this year that there are almost 4 botched areas that should have never happened. My insurance, doctors, and surgical team have all pushed me to file a malpractice suit. I'm not saying he is a terrible doctor, I am just saying I don't think he is experienced in very advanced surgical procedures.I will be going1 to the GI people at UT hospital so that they can try to salvage some sembelance of a normal life at 28 years old. I would just weigh what you need done vs what he feels comfortable doing.

Kept taking my son to him and all he would do was push on his stomach and say he had a virus. Later had to take him to children's hospital where he was diagnosed with crohn's disease. If Dr. Gonzales would have tested him with scope maybe he would not have gotten so bad and required surgery. Not very professional if you ask me.
