Ratings for Dr. Marvin R. Gordon
I start seeing Dr. Gordon when I moved out of the city. Although I provided my cardiac history of mitral valve regurgitation (annual stress tests and EKGs), I was never referred to a new cardiologist. After 5 years I finally asked his nurse/receptionist how often I should have EKGs. She looked at my chart and said that Dr. Gordon never even took a baseline and she gave me an EKG on the spot and recommended that I see a cardiologist. I changed doctors and ended up having to have open heart surgery to repair my mitral valve.
I went in to see the DR about some nauseous ness. Without so much as a test, he said that I may have an ulcer and put me on Prilosec OTC. After a few weeks and not getting any better I want to seek a second opinion. This Dr ran a battery of tests and found out that I was HIV+. The test showed that my viral load was so high, my lymph nodes were swollen and blocking my estuation tubes preventing any fluids from draining in my ears and causing Vertigo â?? type symptoms. Iâ??m glad I sought a second opinion or else Iâ??d be dead.
