Dr. Gordon is extremely good in explaining my illness and the options available for me going forward. He showed me that he cared and had looked at my history and test results before my visiting with him.

Dr. Gordon saved my life. He was recommended by a friend after I was having unsatisfactory treatment at another hospital. He accurately diagnosed my condition and my treatment now has my cancers in remission. I love him.

I am 70 years old and have seen many physicians over the years. Dr. Gordon is simply the best. Extremely smart and knowledgeable, yet understated and humble. He not only is always aware of the latest developments in his field, but he also conducts clinical studies contributing to those developments. He is that rare combination of being both a curious, innovative medical researcher and a compassionate, and caring doctor who is completely invested in his patients.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
