      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Gordon says...

      I was raised in suburban Boston and from an early age seemed destined to pursue a career in medicine. My grandfather was a General Practitioner in Quincy, MA. My father and brother were both general surgeons. My uncle is an academic medical endocrinologist. Basically, I was left with no career path but medicine.

      Following Princeton, I attended medical school at Duke and decided to pursue Obstetrics and Gynecology with a further sub-specialization in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. I have been privileged to help hundreds of patients realize their dreams of becoming parents and appreciate the trust they have shown me in allowing me to be their physician.

      I love teaching and every week I lecture to the medical students and residents from several of the local medical schools (GWU, Georgetown, VCU, Inova Fairfax). I have been honored to receive the APGO CREOG National Teaching Award four times (2015, 2008, 2003, 2000) and have been listed in the Washingtonian Magazine Top Doctors Issue for many years.

      As an Eagle Scout and the father of two Eagle Scouts I have an appreciation for nature and the outdoors. My hobbies include Medical Publishing and watching bad science fiction movies (too old to go to Comic Con).

      Dr. Gordon's Care Philosophy

      Infertility is an emotionally draining problem that few patients ever expect to deal with in their lives. Many of them spend years worrying about unintended pregnancy and then when they fail to conceive quickly it seems shocking. There are many different paths to success in fertility medicine and my job is to help patients determine the best path for them as an individual. The approach for each patient must be considered economically, philosophically, emotionally and physically. Once size does not fit all, especially when considering fertility treatments.

      I have been practicing now for almost 20 years. Following my residency in Ob Gyn at Stanford I completed a Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UCSF. My first position was at Long Island IVF and then 16 years ago I moved my family to the Metro DC area so that I could join Michael DiMattina MD at Dominion Fertility. We deal with a very well educated patient population and I have always approached each and every patient with the care and respect that I would demand as a patient myself. No one chooses to have infertility and my job is to prove excellent advice, support and treatment to ensure the chance for my patients to have the opportunity to become a parent.

      We perform IVF in an office based setting. Since 2007 we have offered Natural Cycle IVF in addition to regular (stimulated cycle) and Donor Egg IVF. We perform more Natural Cycle IVF than any other clinic in the US. In the last few years an increasing number of our patients have elected to undergo Preimplantation Genetic Screening of their embryos prior to embryo transfer. PGS can increase the efficiency of IVF leading to fewer twins and better outcomes for both Mom and Baby.
