5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Perfect Eyelid Surgery - White Plains, NY

Dr. Gordon explained everything in a easy to understand language what to expect during and after the procedure. He even called me the night of the surgery to ask how I was feeling. It made me feel good to know he really cared ! I'd highly recommended Dr. James Gordon!

Fantastic experience, Lives up to reviews!!

After viewing the amazing reviews of Dr. Gordon's clients, I decided to take the plunge and make a consultation appointment. At 33, I found that I had some general volume loss in my face, as well as some hollowness under the eyes. Being that this was going to be my first experience using fillers, I was quite nervous! My fear was that I'd look "done up." Dr. Gordon helped me to feel confident...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

Impeccable experience!

I had an extraordinary experience with Dr. Gordon. He's conservative and has an excellent aesthetic eye. You really can trust his guidance, especially when he advises you AGAINST something based upon his expertise as a highly regarded facial surgeon. He gave me the exact natural result I was hoping for and used a small amount of product, whereas other doctors I had consultations with wanted...

5 out of 5 stars Cataract Surgery

I had a wonderful experience

I just had my cataract surgery on Friday and less than 24 hours later, when I went for my post-op check up on Saturday, my vision is 20/20! I am so excited and pleased with the results of my surgery and can't wait to have the other eye done in a month! I am also so pleased with the whole experience at the Surgical Specialty Center which is so efficiently organized and managed which helped to...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Fantastic Dr!

I went to Dr Gordon coming from another plastic surgeon with whom I had some bad results from fillers. Dr Gordon took the time to explain my options for dissolving the previous fillers and doing it correctly. He was kind, patient and understanding to my situation. When he did my fillers, it was a totally different experience from technique to placement to the amount of time he took to put them...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Very Pleased!!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend James R. Gordon,MD. With his highly experienced skills he helped me achieve the natural look I wanted using filler/botox . Dr. Gordon took time to explain the procedure, did not oversell and reached a remarkable outcome. Very pleased!! Both Dr. Gordon & staff are accommodating, professional, and the plus is Dr. Gordon see's you on time.
