Dr. Leo Gordon has been my oncologist for close to twenty years during my second bout of cancer and now with my third. He is a godsend both medically and with regard to his bedside manner. There are not enough positive words I could use to describe this physician, his knowledge, expertise and genuine care for his patients. I was lucky to have found him during a terrifying time and to still have him as my physician currently.

Dr. Leo Gordon is EXCEPTIONAL in every way. He is so THOROUGH, BRILLIANT AND CARING. It is incredibly re-assuring for me to be his patient, mentally and physically. It is extremely important for me to be treated by a world-class renowned, published physician in his field. I chose Northwestern only because of Dr. Gordon. He represents the Northwestern brand to the utmost. I was born at Northwestern and I am glad to see this hospital has recruited and retained such a world-class oncologist as Dr. Gordon. Thank you. Please take good care of Dr. Gordon. I received and continue to receive outstanding care with Dr. Gordon.
