Dr. Gordon and his office took over my care and have been very happy. I noticed a bad review from another patient and had to write about my experience. I called the office and spoke to the Bariatric Coordinator, she advised me that they do charge a onetime program fee of $250.00 - not $500.00 - Dr. Gordon is not obligated to take over other surgeon?s patients and many bariatric surgeons will not do this. In fact I had made several calls before I found this wonderful caring surgeon.

Dr. Gordon treated my husband for gall stones at Morton Plant Hospital. He was called in to perform the surgery which he did. He was polite, thorough and professional.
