It's rare to find a doctor who treats an office visit like a conversation between two people trying to achieve sharedgoals, instead of an expert preaching at naughty child. Dr. Gonzalez has a wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to listen to concerns and provide actual feedback and care. I know he will be a great partner in my healthcare.

From the tidiness of the facilities, nice greetings from the receptionists and warmth of the staff to Dr Gonzalez's genuine bedside manners, I would definitely recommend him. He took his time to listen to all of my concerns and help meaddress them; and it never felt rushed in any way. The wait was none and they are also pretty tech friendly when it comes to communication with the patient- again, recommended!

Dr. Gonzalez is a cut above the rest. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had a doctor I have felt actually listened to everything I said and made suggestions about what it could be that made me feel confidentin his ability. The staff at Leaf is amazingly friendly and welcoming. Anyone looking for a doctor in the Sunnyside/Astoria/LIC area would be missing out on a great experience if they didn’t try out Dr. Gonzalez and Leaf.

I've never been more impressed with a doctor's office. There was no wait, I was offered water, and my paperwork was handled quickly (online). More importantly, Dr. Gonzalez let me go through a literal list of questions I've had for months.He didn't rush me and took the time to explain everything, as well as offered to refer me to specialists that were not required but would give me peace of mind. I am thrilled to have finally found a doctor I can bring my family to for years to come, and can approach should the need arise.

Dr. Gonzalez was great- he took the time to sit down and speak about my medical and family history first. I just went in for a physical, but he made sure I did not have any current concerns that I neededaddressed. The exam felt through and ending with bloodwork. I must say the medical assistant was lovely. She took my blood painlessly, which was a total win too!

The place was clean, new and easy to get in and out of for a physical check-up. They are also leveraging technology so you can fill out information before you get there, and get your blood exams sent to you via email once they come in from the lab.

Had a wonderful experience at Dr. Gonzalez' office. Beautiful clean office in the heart of Long Island City and excellent bedside manner. Dr. Gonzalez took the time to make me feel like I was the only patient there. The medical assistant(Angelica) who took my initial information, medical history and conducted essential tests was terrific. Excellent followup on the phone and by email. Zero wait time. Highly recommend for your Primary Care Physician!
