Southwest Orlando Family Medicine offers a wide variety of personal care services. The roster includes allergy screenings, behavioral health services, blood pressure monitoring, bone density scans, hearing tests, sleep studies, immunizations, laboratory services, dermatology services, minor emergencies, minor surgeries, pediatric care, preventative health care, sick visits, ultrasounds, weight management, well-woman care, and school and complete physical exams. The practice provides many services under one roof that previously required a patient to travel to several different facilities. Southwest Orlando Family Medicine recently added a second, satellite facility, enlarging its medical campus. The satellite office increased patient-service square footage by 50 percent. It is only steps away from the first office building, and both are within walking distance of Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital. Special caring for the individual patient is on display every day. The clinical staff takes the time to get to know clients on the first visit. It is important for them to understand the lifestyle of each patient in order to build trusting relationships and provide superior, comprehensive care. With a large staff, the group is able to spend as much time as needed with each new patient. During that time, educational information about preventative care is shared and explained. Southwest Orlando Family Medicine received the title of “Top Doctors” by Orlando magazine in 2016. The magazine also named Dr. Patrick Gonzales “Best Doctor” in 2015 and 2016. Additionally, the practice was recognized for having the “Best Doctors” in the Readers Choice Awards conducted by Orlando Family Magazine. John Martin, M.D., a staff clinician with the practice, was named “Elite MD” by Orlando Style magazine in the summer of 2017. A native of the Philippines, Dr. Gonzales is in partnership with The Anawim Inc., a Catholic charity founded to serve the poor and underprivileged in his homeland. Anawim provides for the basic needs and holistic development of impoverished children in Camarines Sur, Philippines. Liza Gonzales, practice administrator, expressed her thoughts on how she feels about the practice, “We genuinely care for each other, for our patients, and for our community and do our best to give them the best care possible. This is the mission of Southwest Orlando Family Medicine.” This quote by an unknown author exemplifies what the practice strives to be: “We remember to live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and leave the rest to God.” Southwest Orlando Family Medicine’s operating hours are Monday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m.-noon at both locations.

Nothing Sweeter Than Mom & Apple Pie! Every year, the staff at the Southwest Orlando Bulletin harvests heartfelt, honest and funny passages from the entries submitted for the Best Mom in Southwest contest. This year was no exception.
