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.Read more

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
