Clearwater, FL |
Dr. Gordon did my Gastric Sleeve Surgery. I am happy with results so far, I believe that the success of this is in my hands though! I'm really happy that my incisions healed great. Dr Gordon's office was a lot better than another bariatric office that I had been too! I actually switched from another office to his office. A lot better experience!
in Trinity, FL |

in Kenneth City, FL |
Dr. Gordon was highly recommend to me by two other surgery patients. I will say that I was very pleased with Dr. Gordon being so concered with my heath and go over everything that he will be doing and what I can expect before and after sergery. His bedside manner is outstanding and I would highly recommend him to other people. I would like to add that the stuff was outstanding also and was able to answers all my questions when I called. Thanks Dr. Gordon your awesome.

He is an amazing Dr. He knows his stuff and has an excellent bedside manner.
in Clearwater, Fl |
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.
St Petersburg, FL |
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.
