Welcome to our office! As a patient, we understand that going to a new doctor can often be stressful. We want you to feel comfortable asking any questions before, during, or after your visit. We are happy to help ease any concerns you may have.
To make your first visit easier, we have provided our enrollment forms on-line. Click on the link to down-load and complete the forms prior to your visit. It is very important that you bring all studies, imaging, and other office notes related to your injury or condition on the day of your appointment. A government-issued picture ID is also necessary for your first visit.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BRING ALL MEDICAL RECORDS RELATED TO YOUR UPPER EXTREMITY CONDITION. IF YOU HAD ANY SPECIAL STUDIES PERFORMED, YOU MUST BRING THESE TO AVOID HAVING TO WAIT FOR THESE TO BE FAXED OR SENT TO OUR OFFICE OR HAVING TO SCHEDULE AN ADDITIONAL VISIT.
INSURANCE & PAYMENT

Dr. Gonzalez-Hernandez has tremendous respect for your time. However, he participates in the on-call emergency schedule for many local hospitals. Often, he will evaluate and treat patients who are severely injured on the same day. These injuries are often complex and unpredictable and he may need to attend to them immediately. Occasionally this may affect your appointment time.
