Dr. Maria R. Gonzalez, ACV's physician, leads a staff of professionals. Besides seeing patients and managing daily operations at the Copeland Clinic, she also supervises the medical care given at Good Samaritan Center, ACV's 24-hour skilled nursing center, and at Dacier Manor, its assisted living facility. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Maria attended and received her MD from Autonomous University of Santo Domingo. She attributes her desire to become a physician to her mother, who is also a doctor. Both women specialize in general medicine. Maria is board certiﬁed in family medicine, geriatrics, and hospice and palliative medicine. Maria has a great passion for hospice care.
Prior to her tenure in Dowling Park, Maria worked as a geriatric specialist at Florida Hospital. In that position, she taught both medical residents and students of Florida State University attending the Orlando campus. As a member of FSU's faculty, Maria hopes to continue ACV's practice of bringing students to the Village for instruction. Before being hired as a geriatric specialist by Florida Hospital, Maria received post-graduate medical education there, completing both her residency and fellowship.
Maria's philosophy of medicine is centered around respect for the patient. She will always suggest what needs to be done, but then her course of action takes into account the patient's wishes and values.
When asked what she likes best about being a physician, she responds, "Interacting with the people and getting to make a difference in their lives."
The medical staff at Advent Christian Village have impressed Maria. She has also been surprised by the high level of care ACV's Social Services staff provides. She comments that ACV's members receive support like she's never seen before.
