One Star

I paid $305 for Dr. Gordon to spend 10 minutes doing the most ridiculus cursory examination I have ever seen. He then proceeded to say nothing was wrong, refused to discuss any of the issues with me the patient, then spent 20 minutes telling me how great he is and how he discovered a rare illness in a patient in the last few months. Do not see this doctor.

Two Stars

We have had several interactions with Dr. Gordon, both in the hospital and in his office with two different people in our family. I found him to be arrogant and impatient. He acted superior with my elderly mother and had no bedside manner or kindness. I found it hard to communicate with him.

Always waiting

Why make an appointment when you have to wait 45 minutes to an hour for a 15 minute exam. It seems that the patient's time is worth very little. Time after time I have to wait to see this doctor in spite of having an appointment. Rarely am I seen at my scheduled time and this has been going on for years. Today I waited for an hour. There is little respect for the patient's time.

Horrible Experience

I have had a horrible experience with this doctor. I went to see him and he looked at me for less than 5 minutes and said that their is nothing he could do. We have called him 3 times and he hasn't returned our phone call. Waiting on being referred to another doctor and getting nowhere. Very disappointed in his services.
