Patient Comments (3)
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.
