Great Back Doctor!

Dr. Gordon is an amazing doctor. I will trust no one else to take care of any disc problems I may have in the future. I have disc issues with my L5 S1, and the last surgery Gordon performed has made an amazing positive difference in the quality of my life. He is a highly skilled surgeon. Back surgery is not easy but Dr. Gordon and his staff both before and after make this process as smooth as something like this can be.

Patient Pamela

This doctor tries to be sophisticated but he is clearly not a University based physician and he needs to realized that and get back to his basics of being an orthopedic surgeon as he has no other specialized training beyond that.

One Star

The group first mis-diagnosed my condition completely then failed to take X-Rays of my back and relied solely on the MRI in treating my condition plus "pain manangaement". Left after seven months to seek another opinion. Turned out I had scoliosis and two herniated discs that after seven months of no treatment required major surgery to repair. Was in major pain during that entire seven months.Very disappointed and upset with the lack of proper diagnosis, treatment and follow-up I received.Would not go near the place ever again nor recommend it to anyone...
