Dr. Denise Gonázlez MD 

Dr González has over 30 years of experience and provides treatment for a wide range of disorders. Advanced Allergy & Asthma Specialists was the 1st provider of SubLingual Allergen Immunotherapy Drops (not shots!) in Central Florida, having introduced this highly effective and convenient FDA and World Health Organization approved method for Curing Allergies, and eliminating the need for weekly allergy shots with Home Administered Drops.

Dr Denise González was born and raised in Manhattan by Cuban parents.  She received her Baccalaureate Degree in Science with a Major in Nursing from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in the Bronx and practiced Nursing for 10 years at NY Hospital - Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan. She subsequently studied and received her Medical Degree from the Universidad de Monterrey in Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Dr González completed her residency training in Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas; among her professors were Dr Ralph Feigin and Dr Denton Cooley, as well as other world renowned Pediatric Specialists, Researchers and Authors. After receiving her Pediatric Board Certification, she practiced Emergency Pediatric Medicine at Texas Children’s Hospital before commencing her Allergy and Immunology Fellowship training under the tutelage of Dr William Shearer, the physician of David “the Bubble Boy”, also at Baylor College of Medicine.

During her A & I Fellowship Training, Dr González carried out extensive research in Immunodeficiencies and Intravenous Gamma Globulin (antibodies). During her Fellowship Training, she also submitted a Grant and received NIH Funding as a Co-investigator of “The Emergency Center Asthma Study”, which led to the development of “The Asthma Center” at Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest free standing pediatric hospital (932 beds) in the nation.  The Asthma Center provides Asthma Assessments conducted by three Departments – A & I, Pulmonary, and General Pediatrics, for the children of Greater Houston. These Specialists then formulate recommendations for the child’s treatment which are forwarded to the his/her Primary Care Physician to achieve tighter management and control of their asthma.

Upon completing her Fellowship Training in Allergy & Immunology, Dr González practiced for several years near her extended family in Palm Beach, Florida, where she was best known for her radio program “Medicina y Su Salud.” Among her peers and patients, Dr González has a reputation for being a gifted teacher, and has lectured students, residents, fellows, Primary Care Physicians and other Specialists in an array of topics in her field of expertise. She has been a Keynote Speaker for PBS, and a guest on a variety of programs with ABC, CBS, TBN, Univision and Telemundo.

Dr González subsequently returned to private practice in Texas, while also serving our Veterans as the sole Allergist for the Veterans Healthcare Administration of South Texas. While at the VA she created the Electronic Health Record for A & I which is still in use worldwide, she restructured and established strict guidelines for the Pulmonary Function Lab and the Allergen Immunotherapy Department, and she advocated for the purchase of new asthma medications which the VA added to its Formulary for the treatment of our Veterans. Dr González subsequently relocated her practice of now 15 years, to Celebration, introducing to Central Florida FDA and World Health Organization approved “Sublingual Immunotherapy” for the cure of allergies, replacing painful and inconvenient “allergy shots” with sweet allergy drops under the tongue at home.
