I took my 11 year old daughter to see Dr. Gordon because I was able to get an appointment with him on short notice. He told us right away he didn't have much experience with pediatric orthopedics but was nevertheless veryresponsive. He explained his observations in a good amount of detail as he was diagnosing the injury, which I appreciated. The office staff was very helpful and friendly. The visit was a positive experience.

Was able to book an appt the day before and RN saw me when I arrived a little early. MD spent considerable time to assess my hip issue, even offering treatment the same visit and understanding budget constraints. Did not tryto push more expensive treatment or surgery though some do. Very friendly, thorough and not patronizing by oversimplifying things. Would definitely recommend.
