Dr Gordon's straight shooter approach is very much appreciated. He didn't waste time suggesting procedures that don't work; went straight to what he thinks will be best for me. The results were realistic as discussed. Win win for both Doctor and Patient. More

I call my eyes lucky eyes because I got a second chance with my eyes. I had prior work done (minor, nothing major) around my eyes by another doctor, but it looked so messed up. Fortunately, I found Dr. Gordon. With his talent and skills, he gave me a few shots and gave my eyes a new look right away. I am very pleased, and call Dr. Gordon the greatest surgeon. More

I'm so grateful to Dr. Gordon. Two years ago I had eyelid surgery in Boston which resulted in the inability to fully close my eyes. He did revision surgery to correct the issue. Now I'm perfect (well, my eyelid is) and I'm forever grateful. Sincere thanks! More

BEST & MOST HONEST SURGEON I went for consultation with Dr. James Gordon. I told him I wanted him to do anything that would make me look better, thereby giving him cart-blanche. He said that I should just do my lower eyelid blepharoplasty, because it would be the "biggest bang for the buck." I asked about fillers and my upper eyelids. The good doctor explained that he could perform additional procedures, but I should focus on "what would really make the most significant difference." THANK YOU Dr. Gordon for making me look so much less tired and without up-charging me for additional unnecessary procedure. More

Dr. Gordon really gave my eyes a second chance. Due to extreme fatigue and stress, my eyes were very strained and look the worst of any woman in her 40s. Dr. Gordon performed eyelid surgery and laser skin resurfacing around my eye area. After a month of healing, I look noticeably younger and more vibrant. Dr. Gordon said the best is yet to come, I'm looking forward to more improvements in the next few months of recovery! More

I went to Dr Gordon because vision in one of my eyes had diminished. He determined I had a cataract. Dr Gordon thoroughly explained the process and the risks of cataract surgery. Because I had retina issues years ago, he sent me first to a retina specialist. We received the clearance for the surgery and despite some initial trepidation, it was a most positive experience! I had absolutely no pain or discomfort - even immediately following the surgery. My vision in that eye is now the best it has ever been in my life - it is sharp and 100% clear. The entire experience was excellent. I am more than satisfied with the end result - thanks to Dr Gordon's expertise. More

I went to Dr. Gordon for Lasik surgery and am so happy with my outcome and with Dr. Gordon's care. He already has an awesome reputation, which is how I found his office, but before, during, and after my surgery Dr. Gordon reached out to me constantly to make sure that I was recovering properly, He made me feel comfortable and cared for. I trust him completely and would go back to him with any concern. I highly recommend Dr. James Gordon. More

Had lasik for vision correction by Dr. James Gordon and was very pleased with the outcome. My vision is now 20/20 and I no longer need eyeglasses. For the procedure, you will be given something to make you relax. After the surgery, I did not feel any pain. It is important to follow the instructions and take all your eyedrops as instructed. The office is well run, staff is very friendly. The surgical coordinator (MeiLing) is very knowledgeable and efficient. I am very happy that I chose Dr. James Gordon. He is an expert in this field and he is very caring, personable and dedicated to helping his patients have good results. I definitely would recommend him for any ophthalmic procedure. More

I had my under eyes filled with Restylane to fill up the hollowness. In addition, Dr. Gordon used Juvederm on my lips to add fullness to it. I like my results very much. My eyes and lips look natural, but much better than before. Dr. Gordon has a great eye in details and also the overall balance of the facial anatomy. His office is modern and comfortable, his staff is also very polite. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Gordon. More

I come from a family of doctors so I have learned to do research before choosing a doctor. After much research, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Gordon - after all, this is about my EYES! I live in Fairfield County and there are many doctors in my area but decided to see Doctor Gordon in Westchester after seeing all positive reviews about him on RealSelf.com. Firstly, the staff is efficient and the facility is state of the art. It is an active and busy office but I did not even have a wait time. Very impressive. Upon meeting Doctor Gordon, it is clear that Dr. G is passionate about his profession. I did not even know what was wrong with my eyes- just that there was an odd and uneven look to them. He described to me that it was a ptosis condition of the eyelid and one eye was more severe than the other. He put drops in my eye which would vastly improve the cosmetic look for up to 10 hours at a time. In 3 minutes the change was amazing and I could see such a positive change in the symmetry of my eyes. For a permanent repair, he suggested ptosis surgery which I am now seriously considering. Only one day ago, this was not even in my mind but his manner evokes a feeling of confidence and trust. He takes a conservative approach and suggested that he operates on one eye at a time about a month apart. The procedure and recovery seems very manageable with my busy work schedule. Again, I want to stress that I he did not push the surgery at all and said that I could continue to use the drops for temporary cosmetic improvement. I believe that Doctor Gordon really does have the patient's best interest at heart. and is a physician to trust. He even called this morning to see how I fared with the eye drops. Not many doctors even do this with a serious procedure - this was about eye drops! I am very happy to have met Doctor Gordon and now feel that I have met the ultimate eye doctor for me. More

I'm Asian, 20 years old. Inherited my mom's thin lips. Was searching for the right doctor to pump up my lips. Luckily I found Dr Gordon, he used Restylane on me. It looks very natural. Thank goodness. I don't want to look like Daisy Duck. I am more than happy with my results. Now I got my sister interested. She's going to have hers done by Dr Gordon too. This is good since we both can enjoy thicker lips and people will think we were born with it. More

I really don't think there's a better doctor than Dr. Gordon out there. The day I met Dr. Gordon was one of my best days and decision of my life. Dr. Gordon literally "uplifted" me with upper and lower blepharoplasty, along with skin laser around the sensitive areas around my eyes. He is a master of the eyes who knows not just the anatomy well, but also understands the art of the aesthetic aspect. The outcome is amazing, better than I had expected. I do not look like I had eye surgery. Nothing was too obvious. Everything seems so natural. Because Dr. Gordon is also a trainer for other doctors, he was so skilled in the way he used laser around my eyes to remove my wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Most importantly, all the procedures were done within my budget without any pressure. Truly the best! More

Whenever I do anything serious, such as consider an operation like this, I do a ton of research. I spent days reviewing all the different plastic surgeons in Manhattan to figure out who would be best to do a potential blepharoplasty on my lower lids. I wanted someone with a ton of experience, recognized for excellence in their field, honest, and also someone young enough such that they still had great motor skills and a very precise hand. That search led me to Dr. James Gordon. I live in Brooklyn, but I went all the way out to Marmaroneck in Westchester to see him (not too bad actually, just take the train to Grand Central, then a 1 hour MTA train to Mamaroneck). Out of all the doctors, he was the only one that far, but I decided he was worth it, I honestly could not find one person who wasn't singing his praises. Here's what happened when I got there for the free consultation. He told me he wasn't going to do a blepharoplasty on me. And that was a pretty incredible thing to hear. Many doctors, just like other professions, have people who will try to upsell you, convince you that you need something more, or even make you feel bad about yourself so you consider something you don't need. Dr. Gordon was the opposite. I've always been self-conscious about dark circles under my eyes and wrinkles under them when I smile. He talked to me about this, told me surgery wasn't the way, suggested some other alternatives if I really wanted them, but even said "Hey, you don't even need to come to me for this, you could go here". That's a pretty remarkable thing. I used to work with doctors as a consultant, nobody will EVER do something like this. However, Dr. Gordon is so confident in his craft and dedicated to providing amazing service that he doesn't seem motivated at all on making money, he's concerned about the outcome of the patient and that patient's happiness above all else. He guided me into making the exact right choice and even helped me out with some other stuff completely free of charge. There is not a better doctor out there, trust me. And no, I'm not someone gaming the review system, this is a very honest writeup, I came back from his office yesterday, and feel free to private message me with any questions or if you want to make sure this is a real review. He mentioned he was considering starting an office in Manhattan, I hope he does. He really is fantastic. Unlike most, he doesn't charge for a consultation, and he will tell you exactly what you need, even if it's recommending that you don't get an operation or that you could get some work done elsewhere. -Chris More

As my Cataracts continued to grow , both my near and distant vision were significantly impaired . Well meaning friends, relatives and of course the numerous on -line cites provided a tremendous amount of advice . Everyone and every article meant well, but left me confused . I chose to go to Dr James Gordon for his expert professional advice and recommendations that would provide the most effective solution for me . Dr Gordon performed a thorough examination , providing me with detailed, coherent and easy to grasp alternatives for Cataract removal and lens replacement . My surgery was on Friday March 20, at a state of the art ambulatory surgical center The staff, beginning from registration to the expert preparation by skilled and caring nurses, pre and post op , as well as an anesthesioogist who answered each and every question , and most importantly kept me comfortable and anxiety free throuhghout the surgery were all superb.

I'm astonished with how a simple injection off fillers in my tear trough and cheek area could make such a HUGE difference in my appearance. I saw Dr. Gordon for a blepharoplasty consult. He suggested I use A Restylane instead to hide my bags and plump up my cheeks. I easily look 10-20 years younger now without surgery! The procedure took 10 minutes and I went back to work the same day. Thank you Dr. Gordon ??? More

I am pleased to share my excellent experience with Dr. James Gordon. He is truly the best Ocular Plastic Surgeon. I experienced first hand why Dr. Gordon received so many medical awards and earned himself an incredible reputation in New York. During my initial consultation with him, he impressed me with his "before & after" patients photos, all of them were real and not touched up. Dr. Gordon's natural confidence, humor & sincerity made me at ease to discuss all my problems without any pressure. Surgery day itself was a breeze. Dr Gordon's skills & techniques were superb and gave me no bruising and very minimal swelling. Even as I walked out of the surgical facility, another patient commented how good I look. Post surgery, Dr. Gordon kindly accommodated my schedule and came in on a Sunday (unheard of for medical professionals these days) to see me. The results for my upper & lower eyelids were amazing. I look into the mirror feeling great and thank Dr. Gordon for being such a brilliant surgeon. More

I've been contemplating either surgery for a long time because both eyelids are different heights. Often people asked me if I'm tired where if I had an injury to one night due to the closing of that island. I went to see Dr. Gordon who explained the problem and clear easy to understand words and even drew out the procedure he was going to perform. After the surgery dr. Gordon called me that night to see how I was feeling he also call me the next day to make sure I was comfortable. One week after the surgery I saw the doctor and he and I both were very pleased with the results. I can't believe that in only one week my eyes are symmetrical again and people have stop noticing my eyes altogether. Thank you Dr. Gordon for making me feel normal again. More

Westchester Eye Associates is the premier place for eye/vision care. I can't say enough great things about them. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Particularly, Dr. James Gordon, he was wonderful. I made an excellent decision seeing him. He did my upper double eyelid surgery January 2011. In the initial visit, he was courteous, and very patient. He took time to explain what the procedure entails and I left feeling totally confident in his abilities. The surgery went very smoothly and the recovery was just as he explained. I feel that Dr. Gordon's expertise minimized my down time, to almost nothing. I am loving the results. Dr. James Gordon is also a fantastic ophthalmologist. I go to him for all my eye care. Just last week he revised a cataract surgery I had undergone a few years ago, and today I see 20/20.

I am 82 and a retired professor. I had to wear glasses since I was 16. Over the years, my glasses were getting thicker and thicker. In the past a few years, my sight was getting worse until legally blind because of the cataract. Dr. Gordon advised me for the cataract surgery a few years ago. I was so afraid of surgery because of the alleged risk learned from my friends. I postponed the surgery again and again. Yet, Dr. Gordon???s confidence in his profession, his determination to treat patients and his kind manner to explain what needed to be done gave me the confidence to carry out this surgery. The second day after the surgery my sight was restored to 20/25. I could see everything ?? my husband???s smile, the colorful expressions on my grand children???s faces, etc. Dr. Gordon changed my life. It was a magic! I shall tell all my friends that Gordon is the best doctor who has given me a new and bright life. More

I have a wonderful experience with Dr. Gordon for Laser skin resurfacing. Since I'm the asian who may has some risk of side effect like darkness. Dr. Gordon was very cautious and did it on me until the techniques improved . He kept in touch with me to make sure everything went smoothly with me. The process was very mild and my skin peeled little by little which was not even noticed by others. Although it's the second time for me, the treatment really improved my skin situation in many aspects. I feel my skin tighter, smoother and the darkness spots is flaking off. I trusted Dr. Gordon and did the Botox . It's amazing that it didn't change dramatically but solved the problem. I was so happy with my decision and his profession. Highly recommend him. More
