Specialties

Dr. Leo I Gordon has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

Good experience so far

i am very satisfied with Dr Gordon, and he has put my mind at ease in these very early days. He is very kind, and spends a lot of time to make sure that you are getting the questions answered. His staff is also very nice. The only problems he has very limited hours to see him, and you have to be patient since they can fall behind. But I think that is a small price to pay to get topnotch treatment and care.

Dr. Gordon is the best doctor I've ever had

Dr. Gordon has been my doctor since 2000. I can't say enough good things about him. I was diagnosed with a non-curable form on Non-Hodkins Lymphoma. Right now...I'm cancer free. Over the past 11 years I went through several treatments including 2 clinical trials, several chemo regimens, and finally the cure...Bone Marrow Transplant. It was rough, and I still have issues...but no cancer and I'm alive. Whether or not it was successful, it wouldn't change my opinion of Dr. Gordon. He listens so much to me. I feel like we have a partnership in my treatment. He's not the type of doctor that runs in and out of your appointment and just tells you what to do. I can go and on, but really...he is the best.
