From the time I signed in everyone was friendly and courteous. The doctor always is friendly, sits and looks me straight in the face. Asks if I have any questions, answers all. I felt like he really cared about me, my condition and any questions I had.

Dr. Gordon has always treated us with respect, compassion and kindness. He is professional and never makes us feel hurried if we have questions or concerns. He did surgery on my neck 2 years ago and is caring for me still for a lower spine condition. We were also very pleased with his resident. She was caring, thoughtful and attentive. We have been to the Ahuja complex many times and have seldom had to wait more than 15 minutes. The staff and Doctors are great!

Dr. Gordon is a blessing in the current medical climate. He is intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate and kind. I am so grateful that he performed my spine surgery. Less than 2 months out and I feel like a million bucks.

Excellent care at visit. Answered all questions.

Reviewed On 11/17/2019
I felt very badly as the dr was kind of condescending. I've had a very stressful past 4 years and he said some things about me waiting to see a dr for my problem. My mom just recently passed away; I was her caretaker and I'm trying very hard to move on with my life and make my health a priority and then he yells at me for waiting! I'll continue to see him (this was my 1st visit) and follow through with what he orders but if he doesn't change his attitude or doesn't do anything to help me, I'll find another dr.

Fastest appointment I have never had. Less than 5 min to exam room, than less than 5 min for ? med student or resident came to interview me. 5-8 minutes for Dr.Gordon to come in, examine and knowledgable about my history and my surgery. He then made a plan for this visit, gave me persciptions ordered therapy and explained all this to me thoroughly. He encouraged me to come back if the plan was not working and he would do more testing

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
