Davenport, FL |
From the first phone call to meeting my Surgeon his staff is top notch. Dr.. Gordon spent lots of time answering all my questions and concerns. They are the best office! So happy I chose them.
Clearwater, FL |
would not recommend this surgeon. Appears to get irritated when try to talk with him. Very discouraging.
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.
Largo, FL |
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.
