Maritza Gonzalez, MD

Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology Co-Director, Diabetes in Pregnancy Program

Maritza Gonzalez, MD, is a maternal-fetal medicine physician, which means that she specializes in high-risk pregnancies. Dr. Gonzalez provides comprehensive care to women who have an increased risk of complication throughout pregnancy because of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, mental health disorders, advanced maternal age, hypertension, multiple pregnancy, preeclampsia and premature birth problems.

Her commitment to her patients and passion for medicine has inspired Dr. Gonzalez into being a strong advocate for accessible health care for everyone. Dr. Gonzalez finds it truly rewarding to work women who are recovery from addiction and/or opioid use disorder(s) as they navigate their pregnancy. Additionally, Dr. Gonzalez also enjoys working with and treating under resourced patient populations that do not have access to quality health care.

As part of her ongoing quest to improve care for women, Dr. Gonzalez is also an avid researcher who investigates ways to better management high-risk patients. Her work has been published in several peer-reviewed journals, including the American Journal of Perinatology and Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
