Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gordon "As a spine surgeon I believe in performing spinal surgery only when it becomes necessary and when it is clearly able to provide a significant improvement in a patient's quality of life. Patients who benefit the most from spinal surgery are those who have neurologic symptoms due to compression of nerve roots or the spinal cord. Typically these people exhibit radiating pain in the arms or legs, persistent numbness and tingling, or progressive difficulty with coordination and balance."

Dr. Gordon and his scheduling staff are rude and unprofessional. Find another doctor!

I read some negative reviews before my appointment with Dr. Gordon. Yes, he has an air of CONFIDENCE but not arrogance. THATS WHAT I WANT !! This guy is operating on my spine. He read my MRI and told me exactly what the issue was. He never pushed surgery but agreed with me when I said I needed it. My surgery on Dec 20th was flawless. So far the results are perfect. Dr. Gordon performed a laminectomy and I am already walking normally and pain free. His office staff are great..Karen is the best!

Had I of researched this Dr prior to my apt I would have not seen him. He walked into the room with a 'God' like air about him which set the scene from the get go. Throughout the apt, I found him extremely condescending to the point of being rude and insensitive. I would not recommend this Dr to anyone unless you don't mind being treated as a lesser human being than you are and brought to tears by lack of compassion, advise and a cutting tongue as sharp as a knife.

Dr. Gordon just preformed a L-4 to L-5 laminectomy/distectomy on me (9/2) at University Hospital *Case Western* medical center and he did an EXCELLENT JOB! Other than my suture/surgery pain, all of my butt & leg pain is gone! I have some slight numbness on the bottom of my left foot, but I'm sure that will go away with time. Dr. Gordan went above & beyond to make me feel better. He visited me after surgery 3xs (which put my nerves at rest). (Even during a holiday weekend.)

Dr. Gordon is an outstanding doctor who performed a very difficult operation to restore feeling to my limbs. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to spinal cord issues. Dr. Gordon made the correct assessments throughout my recovery and accurate with my recovery details. He took the time to explain the details and possible outcomes of my surgical procedure. He is truly a rock star when it comes to spine surgery.

One star due to the fact that Dr. Gordon can recommend you for physical therapy yet refuses to fill out FMLA paperwork so you can attend without jeopardizing your job. If I work Monday through Friday and have a child I have to pick up from daycare how else can I attend a physical therapy appointment. Apparently he doesn't fill out paperwork unless you have surgery so in my case being in excruciating pain and unable to bend at the waist doesn't cut it. Guess I need to wait until it gets worse.

My last visit to him was on a Thurs. at which time he told me the only person that could help me was me, that I had to get serious about pt,; I was over weight, and that if I thought I had come to him to get drugs for the severe pain I described to him, I had the wrong doctor. The following Tuesday, at physical therapy, it took 3 people to get me off of the table, was taken to the ER and then by ambulance to Columbus - where they found a staph infection in my spine. Had emergency surgery.
gave completely incorrect diagnosis.he was extremely harsh and told me that my injury (caused by a vehicle accident) was my fault due to weight,as he said grotesquely obese (yes I gained weight due to herniated disc 2 years ago & did lose some weight & I struggle w weight/depression) my bmi is 32. I'm not proud but have extenuating circumstances that makes it hard to lose the weight. injury due to accident, he said because I'm fat he can't fix the injury. Made me feel like i should end my life
