Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gordon "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."
