Dr. Gordon is one of a kind. What can I say about him that hasn't already by said by so many of his other patients? To say he is brilliant is an understatement. As if his stunning credentials were not enough, he has such a reassuring bedside manner and is always willing to spend whatever time is necessary to answer questions or offer advice. He has a remarkable talent for explaining complex issues in terms I can understand.

Dr.Gordon has been my oncologist for 9 years through my Hodgkins Lymphoma illness. He guided my care and monitored my progress and setbacks with knowledge, wisdom and kindness. He explained the nature of the desease process I was experiencing and guided me through the decision process evaluating suitability of clinical care options. I could not have found a better physician advisor.
