      All he cared about was doing more test and never treated my illness at all. Then he told me there was nothing he could do and sent me to my pain management doctor

      He didn’t look at any of my scans, symptoms, tests, or did he take care in listening to me. It was my first visit and I left feeling like he didn’t understand what was really going on with me. He was a little insulting at times. I wouldn’t recommend him for anything severe.

      Dr. Gordon treated my father recently. He gave my dad such outstanding care! My dad said that he has never had a doctor take as much time and had more patience! That is a big compliment from a man who has seen quite a few doctors in his time.

      Saw Dr. Gordon for headaches I thought were related to a nerve condition resulting from the shingles I had on my face a few years ago. He did a thorough examination and intently listened to the symptoms I had been having for a long time. After the MRI came back normal and exam showed nothing serious, he prescribed me some medication. I took the medication as prescribed and have not had any of the problems I had been having prior to the appointment. He was extremely helpful.

      I have seen Andrew Gordon several times. He had a real attitude in the appointments and did not focus on me. Several days after my last appointment I went to see my long term family dr,. He gave me a copy of Gordon's notes and said I really need to read them. I was shocked. Several times Gordon had taken 2 or 3 words from a sentence and completely twisted them. At other times he completely made up parts. My recommendation, if you are a patient of Gordon read his notes. If new find someone else.
