Dr. Gordon is the best doctor I have even seen. He is very kind, honest and skilled. You can see it once you meet him. And my results after my procedure was just great. I cannot be mire thankful to have found Dr. Gordon.

Extraordinary talent & artistry. I saw Dr Gordon after a terrible lower bleph and a second surgery by a specialist to remediate. I didn't want additional surgery but was drawn by the wide range of non-surgical options he offers. The only thing he felt I needed was filler in the tear troughs and botox around the outer eye. We did both and I am thrilled with the results. And he does more than just eyes. He also did my laugh lines & cheek hollows. I look 15 yrs younger! Will definitely be returning

Spectacular! The reviews are 100% true. I wanted a procedure done and he explained precisely what I was seeing and why it wasn't necessary and talked me right out of it. So damn honest I couldn't believe it. I really wish we had more doctors like this. Looking to have some great work done and want a true to honest human being head over to see Dr. Gordon, just great.

I consulted with Dr. Gordon about a correction needed after a BAD cosmetic surgery. I developed an under eye bag and some asymmetry after said surgery. When he saw me he said he will not perform a bleferoplasty but will correct the asymmetry and the eye bag with fillers. He did the fillers and I'm very happy. The injections were pain free, with no anesthetic even on my lips and zero bruising. I look like my old self not done at all. Excelent an honest doctor.

Dr Gordon has performed 4 successful operations on my eyes. He is a real professional and treats you like you are his only patient. I strongly recommend him. He and his staff are very pleasant as well as professional.
in New Rochelle, NY |
I've seen many MANY doctors about BAD surgery I had before. Finally I made an appointment with Dr. James Gordon. He not only comforted me, but gave me realistic hope. He operated on my eyelids and mid-face and turned me back to my prettier days. I am forever grateful. I give TOP marks to this old fashioned, but young surgeon. Many thanks!!

I would give him a 10 if I could. Was seeing an Eye Dr. who told me my problem was my imagination My Optometrist advised me to see another eye doctor. I made many calls Dr Gordon agreed to see me and then steer me in right direction. Well 5 mins with him and he diagnosed me. He makes calls for you, double checks things he recommends. I can't say enough about him, and always says if I am having problems to call him. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Gorden is an incredible surgeon. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and now I can see perfectly without glasses for the first time in over 50 years. Thank you Dr. Gordon for your expertise and kindness.

Made my sad, tired eyelids look happy and awake!
in New York, NY |
Dr. Gordon --- An Exceptional Surgeon! On the day of surgery I felt no pain and the day after my surgery I felt all well. His experience and skills are superior. I would not hesitate in giving Dr. Gordon my highest recommendation.
in Sierra Vista, AZ |
Dr. Gordon is an incredible doctor, with the utmost professionalism and expertise. I am so grateful to him for taking the time to explain everything about the procedure to me, and for his extremely detailed approach to perfecting the filler injections. Even though I only had one day in New York, he made sure that I would leave satisfied despite being unable to visit for a follow up appointment if need be. He is very friendly, and genuinely seemed to care about me as a patient.
in Westchester, NY |
Very competent Doctor. I chose him to perform my LASIK surgery because I was impressed with his experience and it really showed. Plus he is a very genuine guy. I highly recommend.
in Jersey City |
Doctor Gordon is great! I'm a 30 year old woman with a slight hooded lid, so slight that I'm probably the only one that sees it. My plan has always been to get a blepharoplasty when I turn 40 but once I turned 30 I thought, might as well do it now and enjoy it in my 30s. When I went to see Doctor Gordon he told me that its so slight, if he were to do anything it would look artificial. He is all about quality. I will be seeing him in 10 years. I highly recommend him.
in Westchester, NY |
Dr. Gordon is the real deal. He is not only a great doctor but someone who genuinely cares about his patients. In this day and age of impersonal service - Dr. Gordon is a throwback to the "good old days," when doctors seemed to care more. I've had a myriad of sight threatening issues in the last 18 months and Dr. Gordon was the steady hand that identified and guided me through a retinal detachment and a cataract surgery. My eyesight is 20/20 in that eye, when I could have otherwise been blind
in Bronx, NY |
Not only great at what he does but he's also a kind and patient human being. Rare to find! God knows how detail oriented I am but he didn't seem to mind. Answered all my questions, did a fantastic job. I would give 10 stars if I could :-) Thank you dr. Gordon, keep up the good work. I'll be back !!:-)

Excellent surgeon! Took good care of me and my mother. Forever grateful!
in Hartsdale, NY |
I am a patient of Dr. Gordon and I have been treated with a high level of professionalism by all members of the staff. My surgery was performed with skill and caring.I very glad that Dr. Gordon was recommended by a close friend.
in White Plains, NY |
I highly recommend Dr. Gordon. He is a knowledgeable doctor, who is friendly and a pleasure to go see. He takes his time and never rushes my appointments, while always patiently answering every question I ever ask. I wanted to have LASIK for so long and finally convinced myself to do it about a month ago. Dr. Gordon performed the surgery and did an amazing job. I am so happy with the results, and recommend Dr. Gordon to anyone who is interested in the procedure. Worth every penny!
in New Rochelle, NY |
Far exceeds my likelihood of recommending Dr. Gordon to EVERYONE! I admire his artistry on me, as well as his personable nature. I never felt as comfortable in a doctor's office. This doctor is a gem, true keeper once you found him. Highly recommended.

in Scarsdale, NY |
I was referred to Dr. Gordon from friends in my area who have been treated by him with surgery, fillers and botox. Went in to get a botox touch up and was impressed by the amazing job he did to remove my wrinkles. I will be back to see him regularly.

Elmont, NY |
I can't say enough about Dr. Gordon.. I will sum it up with 3 words: Honest, Caring and Incredible. I had 4 eyelid blepharoplasty which he performed on a Saturday for me (it was the most convenient day for me). We chatted about everything and the time flew by. Now I'm 1 month out from surgery and love the results. He called me the night of surgery and the day after. I made the right choice choosing Dr. Gordon.

I had cataract surgery on both eyes i do not have to wear glasses for distance any more, colors are brighter and I can drive at night again. Thank you Dr. Gordon
New York, NY |
BEST & MOST HONEST SURGEON I went for consultation with Dr. James Gordon. I told him I wanted him to do anything that would make me look better, thereby giving him cart-blanche. He said that I should just do my lower eyelid blepharoplasty, because it would be the biggest bang for the buck. I asked about fillers and my upper eyelids. The good doctor explained that he could perform additional procedures, but I should focus on what would really make the most significant difference. THANK YOU !

Dr Gordon has a skill set that is difficult to find in doctors today. He knows how to set your mind at ease while being able to deal with some of the most sensitive issues you have to face. I cannot make enough positive comments about my experience with him and would highly recommend him. Other medical colleagues of mine have the same high opinion of him
