Dr. Gonzalez is an Integrative and Functional Medicine physician professionally born out of the necessity to optimize patient care. He earned his M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Dr. Gonzalez studied under Dr. Andrew Weil, the Father of Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, and was one of the first students at the Integrative College of Medicine.

Dr. Gonzalez practiced as one of our U. S. Military’s leading emergency medicine and trauma physicians. He taught medicine at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Penn State Hershey Medical Center and served as chief of the largest emergency and trauma service in the Iraq War, Baghdad. He is trained in the advanced techniques of Hormone Replacement Therapy and Age Management Regenerative Medicine and is a Member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the International Society for Sexual Medicine, and the Obesity Medicine Association.

Dr. Gonzalez is known as a “Medical Feminist,” a physician passionate and dedicated to women’s health and wellness. As a subspecialist in metabolic repair and treating transgender and nonbinary patients, he is an oft sought expert in wellness, hormone management, prevention, and disease state management.  After recognizing the need for an emphasis on disease prevention rather than waiting for the disease to occur, he founded the Atlantis Medical Wellness Center where he developed and honed an integrative medical practice based on optimizing an individual’s health.

As a Black Belt in Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Kung Fu, a concert violinist, pilot, linguist, and teacher of these skills he is not only a true “Renaissance Man,” but Dr. Gonzalez is a “Renaissance Man’s” doctor skilled in treating a wide range of medical conditions. He emphasizes an overall optimal and functional approach to an individual’s health at any age. Catching disease before it happens is his mantra.

Dr. Gonzalez speaks to healthcare providers at the national and international levels with the skills to integrate both evidence-based medicine and experience-based medicine. Look for his book on the ABCs of CBD: A comprehensive look at the endocannabinoid system and The Athena Factor: How to Empower yourself as a woman in our current health care system.
