Dr.Gordon stated that Restalyn was not going to give me what I wanted and that it would not make much of a difference because he did not think I needed any fillers. I asked him what about getting fillers in my cheeks. He said that I...

I had a AMAZIING experience with Dr James Gordon!

AMAZING!!! I can't believe the difference that the iopidine eye drops made. In recent months I noticed that my right eye looked "droopy". When I saw Dr. Gordon he recommended I try the iopidone eye drops, that he has had good results with the drops tightening the eyelid. I was skeptical, but I was amazed at the difference it made. What a great experience, Dr Gordon is wonderful dr that doesn't...
