Dr. Gordon Says:
"

Our 350 doctor multispecialty practice group, Vital MD, maintains extensive quality control and patient followup. I do not actively solicit epostings from happy patients, so it is what it is. Since I see a high volume weekly, I think the unhappys are surprisingly few, but in this format, I only get 3 stars. Try me, you will be pleased.

They won't tell you but if you don't go to an appointment, there is a cancellation fee of $35 dollars, they'll send to you address. The staff is rude and sarcastic.

Don't go. Doctor office will send you a Bill 5-6 months later with a high balance. It is amazing how insurance is charged for $605 related to ligation of hemorrhoid.

We do our best to please every patient, but deductibles and copays are unfortunately very high in SouthFlorida, and insurance payments are well below our usual charges, as in this gentleman. A lot of people become upset, and we try our best. Occasionally it is not good enough.
