Dr. Gordon is very easy to talk to, professional, and did a great job on my gallbladder surgery. It was easy to get an appointment; not long waiting in waiting room. He explained everything and answered all my questions. His staff was kind and helpful scheduling my surgery and appointments.

Nervous with no follow up

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.
