Just horrible told my sister she was lucky to be alive and didn’t even offer her oxygen to help her breath. He should never call himself a doctor. Retire.

Dr. Gordon is a poor excuse for a doctor. He ignores serious symptoms expressed by patients, and states that he does not like to order tests for the elderly. It is surprising he is still allowed to practice medicine. You take your life in your hands when dealing with him.

Best Doctor ever. Love this Doctor, my whole family goes to him. Highly recommend him. Very caring man. Answers all your questions. Also, loves to tell you jokes, so be prepared to laugh. You may have to wait a while in waiting room, thats because he doesn't rush, he takes his time with his patients. He is worth waiting for.
