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.”
