Boise, ID |
Dr Gordon is an amazing surgeon. I have been to few orthopedic surgeons for injuries over the years, and by far, Dr Gordon is the best! He takes his time explaining the injuries, the options that I have, the conservative vs aggressive options. He lets me decide how to proceed, depending on the amount of pain I am having. He is definately NOT surgery happy, but will schedule me for a surgical procedure if that,s what I decide. The staff is wonderful as well, especially his asst April!
Sandy, UT |
Dr Gordon takes time to explain the options and was very helpful in letting me make the best decision for my care. He is the best doctor that I have had.
Draper, UT |
What I thought was good treatment, ended up being not good at all. He kept waiting and waiting on ordering an MRI for me until I finally told him I needed one, so I could determine whether or not I would be eligible to compete in my sport. Turns out I need surgery, something I could have figured out 3 weeks ago if he hadn't kept asking me to "just come back in 2 or 3 weeks".
Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr Gordon might be good but Alta Sport's business model is obviously based on making money from required excessive appointments and excessive x-rays. And the staff enforces this! Especially April, who seemed quite proud of her lack of compassion. Unless you want to follow their rules 100%, I'd suggest you go somewhere else because once you break a rule, forget getting any help from them. Either Dr Gordon condones the staff's behavior or he is unaware of it. Either way, not recommending him.
in Riverton, UT |
I think he gave good advice, except that I had already performed all the given advice, as I had explained, so I was ready to do what he was proposing to do in a followup appointment. In other words, I felt he didn't listen to me, and gave me a pad answer to my complaint without listen to the remedies I had already performed.
