I recently had Dr. Gordon perform my surgery at Countryside Hospital and want to thank him for his excellent work and follow up. It was easier than I thought it would be to recover and I had absolutely NO issues while in the hospital. I would recommend him for the type of surgery I had…Partial Colectomy and Colon Resection.

I had bariatric surgery with Dr. Gordon. He helped me through the extensive process and explained each step along the way. I had very little post-surgery pain and no complications. Dr. Gordon is a consummate gentleman and a true professional. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Dr. Gordon is very skilled, unfortunately, his office staff leaves a lot to be desired. If you are looking for a good surgeon I recommend him but try not to judge him based on the people you have to go through to get to him.

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!

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.
