I could not have been in better hands! Dr. Gordon and Christy are so considerate. Dr. Gordon took a great deal of time to do a careful job on my procedure. Christy and Dr. Gordon went above and beyond to help me with an allergy issue. They did everything to make me as comfortable as possible. They are healers in the true sense of the word. I can't speak highly enough.

Dr Gordon is absolutely outstanding!! He explains fully and listens to your concerns! He is a caring, understanding and extremely professional doctor! He took out my gall bladder (And it needed to be taken out) and I had no ill effects whatsoever!!! I would recommend and use him again if the need ever arises. I cannot say enough good things about Dr Gordon and his staff!

Dr. Gordon took his time during my visits, which is a plus. He removed a tumor from my ribs, & removed a cyst from my back. I had both done the same day, & I was amazed, I was Pain Free !! I never had a Pain Free Surgery before, I still can’t believe it !! AWESOME !! I would recommend Dr. Gordon to anybody. ?? Thank you Dr. Gordon ??

I had to make an urgent appointment regarding a mammogram that turned out to be something pretty rare. I had several biopsies and a surgery and he always put me at ease, even calling personally to discuss test results. He's very compassionate and patient during appointments, making sure all concerns are addressed.

I have never had a doctor that was so thorough. I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and he made this terrible diagnosis just a little easier. He spent over an hour and a half with me to make sure I understood everything about my surgery when we were planning. He showed me how he was going to hide my incision along the nipple, which I had no idea was even possible. He is the most compassionate and sincere doctor I have ever met and I would recommend everyone with a breast problem to go see him!

Best breast surgeon there is ,period. He took great care of my mom and treated her with dignity and respect even though she was a nursing home patient. He gave us options and he did not just assume since she was in a nursing home we were ready to give up. Would recommend to everyone with a breast problem!!!! Great bed side manner and knows how to talk to people so they understand!

Due to complications from a prior surgery, I became critically ill. My intestines was perforated and Dr. Gordon repaired my intestines and gave me a colostomy. He also reversed my colostomy once my intestines were healed. He was very professional, had good beside manners and always explained everything prior to doing any procedure. I am a nurse and because I became so ill, I was not coherent to choose a doctor but my family couldn't have chosen anyone better. His office staff was very good as w.
