I've been to Dr Gordon 3 times for an Intravitreal injection. I was worried sick about having to get an eye injection but he and his staff were so sweet and funny. They calmed me down and worked quickly and effienciently. It was over before I knew it! Every appointment since has been just as good. He's really nice and will actually listen to you and answer any questions you have. I've been to many drs but Dr Gordon is the kindest and most professional.

I think he is a wonderful doctor... WHEN YOU FINALLY get to see him. I waited over an hour each time before I even saw a nurse. Add the dialation time and its close to 2 hours before I got to see dr Gordon. He is worth the wait but his staff needs a little help in the scheduling department!! They need to respect our time. I would recommend him to those with lots of extra time. He is a great doctor.

I WOULD NOT SEND ANYONE TO SEE THIS DR. HE IS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. HIS ASSISTANT WAS MORE APPROACHABLE, NICE AND TO ME SEEM TO KNOW MORE THAN THE DR. I HAVE NEVER HAD A DR. WALK OUT ON A PATIENT. THERE WAS NO EXCUSE FOR HIS ACTIONS. YOU WOULD THINK AND OPTHALMOLOGIST WOULD HAVE STUDIED ALL ABOUT THE EYES AND THEIR FUNCTIONS EVEN THOUGH HE IS A RETINA SPECIALIST, TO ME HE WAS NOT WORTHY OF THE POSITION OF AN OPTHALMOLOGIST. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE CARE OF THIS DR.
