The next time I need a derm. appt., I will go to another provider. Did not feel like Dr. Gordon cared!
Thank You
Large clinic Im sure there are many providers that can work with patients
well worth the 1-1/2 hr drive to get there
Really appreciate Dr. Gordon responding so quickly when I submit questions via the My Health website.
As always the staff is great. I was seen by the doctor, resident and Stanford student. Outstanding care and attention from all three.
He was very professional and informative. I was impressed - he had very clear ideas about what the problems were - gave me directions and answered all my questions in a very professional manner
Doctor Gorden is very nice and has very good knowledge. He really care about the patients. He always made correct diagnostic, gave me good advice, and correct treatment. He accepted to see me the same day when I call, in two occasions.
I wasn't given information regarding the injections I received in keloids. ie what is expected end results; side effects; how long medication on the market.
Doctor Gorden is excellent. I am glad that he is my doctor.
Dr. Gordon very friendly & reassuring - but turned-out my input about self treatment.
Excellent experience addressing to the patients concerns.
