I want to thank all the patient who posted positive feedback. Having a good online presence these days is crucial and our happy patients are the best feedback we can get. Hope all those hips and knees continue to do well.

Very satisfied with the total experience with my right hip replacement 9/1/2016-- Dr. Gordon and entire staff care for my well being-- took the time necessary during my 1st consultation to answer all my questions. And checked on me before and after surgery. Will be having my 1st after surgery office visit with Dr. Gordon in another 2 weeks; my outcome has been wonderful--- pain levels of only at a 1 or 2 right after surgery through now (17 days after surgery)-- & PT results are great - Carl J

I have been seeing Dr. Gordon since 2009. He is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever seen. His patient care is beyond excellent. He has never given up on me and my problem with my right knee. He has referred me to see other doctors, but I returned to him for the final decision to repair my right knee. He has my outcome uppermost in his mind. I always felt very comfortable with him and he is easy to talk to. He cares very much for his patients.

DR.GORDON REPLACED MY KNEE 2YRS AGO.GREAT DR. LISTENS AND ANSWERS ALL QUESTIONS.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

My TKR went better than I could imagine, and I am sure Dr Gordon's skills were the reason. Sure you leg will swell, and you will have some pain. Watch a YouTube video showing a similar surgery, so you can tell just invasive it is. But I can kick myself for waiting so long. After 2 weeks no walker, no cane. Its now been six weeks, and my range of motion is almost perfect. Dr Gordon always took the time to explain everything. I never felt rushed. Thank you Dr Gordon and the entire IBJI staff!!!
