Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gore "I care for patients with varied neurosurgical disorders; I specialize in the surgical treatment of brain, skull base, and pituitary and spinal cord tumors. Patients with any of these conditions face a daunting diagnosis. I aim to provide the best possible neurosurgical and medical care, guided by evidence-based medicine and delivered with technical expertise and compassion. For many patients with tumors, neurosurgery is just the first step. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of specialist physicians to provide integrated, cutting-edge care."

I had superior canal dehiscence surgery twice by Dr. Gore. Brilliant man, great personality. I can not say enough good things about him and his office. After my first surgery he came in and called me a rock star lol for some reason it was the funniest thing I had ever heard.
Huck, we're happy you had a great experience with Dr. Gore. Best wishes -The Oregon Clinic

Multiple MRI's, Gore told me if condition worsens I should have surgery Back worsened to the point that both legs collapsed & I blew my knee requiring major surgery, yet Gore still said we shouldn't do back surgery? Last appt. I sat in a wheelchair for 74 minutes past my appt. time, only to have him speak with me for 4 minutes. I then had to wait a hour in pain, for transport to make its way back to me A "polite" complaint got me threatened to be dropped as patient by office mgmt F Grade

He is by far the finest Doctor I've had the pleasure of helping me with my problems. So far he is Batting 1000 with his skills and personality for both him and his team.
