Learn about Dr. Gordon

Care Philosophy

Each patient is an individual, and deserves to be treated as such, with care and respect. I listen to my patients, and speak honestly with them. I take the time to understand them and explain medical concepts in plain English. Patients have a right to make their own treatment decisions. My top priority is a successful result, but just as important is to guide patients through what is often one of the most bewildering and threatening experiences of their lives. At Advanced Surgical Care, our mission is to help patients make this journey safely, with dignity, understanding, and confidence.

I saw Dr. Gordon recently for gallbladder stones. He has an excellent bedside manner which makes you feel welcomed, cared about, and valued as a patient. He was extremely personable and listened well when I shared my symptoms and concerns. On the day of the surgery, his comforting manner gave me a sense of ease during this nervous time for me. He assured me all would be fine, and it was. A smile can say a thousand words. He came highly recommended and I would highly recommend him too!

I was in the hospital in an emergency situation with my gall bladder with multiple complications. Dr Gordon was my rock. He was calm, answered all my questions and concerns, and saw me through the most difficult of processes with his unflappable abilities, both surgical and emotional.
in Ridgefield, CT |
Amazing! Great bedside manner, expertise, care, and experience! Just had a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair by him on 12/20/16 and I barely needed any pain medication hours later. I was immediately up and about and my recovery period was quite immediate with very little physical signs of surgery. I highly recommend him!

in Bethel,Ct |
Just had Hernia surgery by Dr. Gordon today. He is a kind compassionate competent Surgeon. Although my surgery was a relatively minor routine procedure i am confident that if i was facing a more complex life threatening surgery i would be in the best hands with Dr. Joseph Gordon. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon. 8 hours later and i have not had to use any pain medication. Feeling pretty good considering surgery was this morning. Thanks Dr. Gordon
