Referred to Dr. Gordon by my ophthalmologist for a retinal detachment. Dr. Gordon is thorough and explained Exactly in words that gave me a visual of the problem. He also made it very easy for me to understand the procedure involved to fix the detachment and was honest in his assessment of the outcome. Dr. Gordon has a comforting/calm demeanor and does not rush off to the next patient allowing you the patient to have all their questions answered. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon.

Am a diabetic, was recommended to this doctor due to an exam. My eyesight started getting blurry. All test made conclusion eye on right the problem eye, need surgery. Everyone great but when it can to couldn't pay for surgery, was told will seek help from county and not to worry they will help was walked out like if I didn't matter. Not one call back since. Everyday losing my vision more. I guess it's all about the money. I've worked all my life never depended on anyone.This is disappointing.
