These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.

Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.

It is horrible to have a surgeon who you do not feel confident to call on with concerns after surgery. On 3 separate occasions now he has talked down to me, degraded me and shown total disrespect. I called to inform of a fever 3 days after surgery and was told by his nurse to come in that afternoon. When Dr. Gordon arrived 45 minutes late with not so much as an apology for his lateness he then proceeded to tell me that he should not have to see me just 3 days after surgery and he did not consider 101 a fever. I snapped and told him I was just following his staffs directions and he said they were just secretaries. Last time I checked a nurse was a little more than a secretary.
Dr. Gordon is a wonderful surgeon and compassionate man. His staff goes above and beyond to help the patients. His Bariatric Coordinator and I believe office manager as well, Jan has been with him along time and they all work together as a team. Love the staff at Dr. Gordon's office . Keep up the good work.The world needs more of Dr. Gordon's office staff.
