    Subject:  Looking for a pediatrician who will collaborate care with specialists
    Comment:  We have found Dr. Gordon's office to be outstanding. We can get emergency support when we need it, they are available for routine questions and in a recent situation (also related to a GI issue), they were present, attententive with following up and checking in outside of appointments, helped us through finding a medication our insurance would cover, and prepped us well for the specialist visit. At this point we don't need ongoing coordination with the specialist but I feel very positive they could handle that well.

    Comment:  Dr. Gordon’s practice in Cobble Hill has Saturday hours and we have always been able to get a same day sick appointment in person or teleheath when needed, as well as very prompt phone consults after hours. They reply quickly to online portal messages too. If they accept your insurance, I’d highly recommend going to them!

    Comment:  Dr. Gordon and her practice is all I could dream of in a pediatric practice. They always take time to answer questions, take very thorough care, provide thoughtful preventive referrals when needed, we can always get in if there’s a major concern, and always get a call back with something that doesn’t require an office visit. I couldn’t ask for more knowledgeable, experienced, skillful, calm and reassuring care for our daughter (and parents who have learned so much from Dr. Gordon and her team). (Oct 2019)

    Comment:  We loved Dr. Gordon. We worked with her from when my son was born until well after we moved further away, had to travel back to the 'hood for appointments with her and it was worth it, for some years. She got me through the bulk of his vaccines and was a great partner in the process (I am not anti-vaccine but did delay and split a bit, including the MMR when it was possible to split it into 3 separate vaccines - that's no longer an option, of course).

    Comment:  We have a 2.5 year old and have been with Dr. Gordon’s practice since day 1. I can’t remember the specifics but I never felt a pressure to sleep train our daughter. It’s possible the cry it out method came up but so did other methods, tips and mostly just a lot of support for what worked for our family. We happened to do a form of cry it out when she was little but when she hit the 18 month regression I remember specifically Dr. Edghill (part of Dr. Gordon’s practice) saying that cry it out for our specific situation is not recommended and she gave us other amazing techniques that were really helpful. We have a great sleeper but she’s also a kid who his every regression and for nearly each one someone from the practice spent time either on the phone, email or in person helping us through it.

    Comment:  I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Phillippa Gordon's practice. Every clinician is great, they are so responsive, caring and smart. When you call after hours, you get a clinician immediately - not an answering service - even at 1 am! It feels like a small enough practice to really know you and your family, but large enough to staff on weekends and after hours. It's the best of both worlds. (Aug 2018)

    Comment:  Philippa Gordon and Associates Review: I love Dr Gordon's office. They are thorough, thoughtful, and caring. Our baby came home from the hospital with some minor complications and a host of issues to be followed up on, and they did a great job helping us find the right specialists, figure out what had to happen when, and handle annoying logistical issues such as referrals. They jumped on the phone with me several times to talk through options and scheduled us for special visits to follow up when necessary. I've seen and felt very comfortable with Dr. Gordon, Dr. Edghill, and Dr. Copenhaver. I also find their front desk staff extremely friendly and responsive. The only time I felt a bit less confident was when we saw Dr. Reddy, who generally works out of their Cobble Hill office; our visit with her felt a bit rushed and cursory, which I probably only noticed because it was so the opposite of our experience in general. Insurance: Yes. Filing claims has been totally painless and co-pays have ended up quite low.Based on a October2015 birth

    Comment:  Review: We are very happy with Dr Gordon's practice. We started at Tribeca and were not happy. The doctors were lovely, but they were terrible at listening, and we always felt rushed. The administrative staff, while nice, was constantly losing appointments and paperwork. Dr Gordon's practice is the opposite. The whole experience feels relaxed but well run. The doctors listen before speaking and have lots of on-point suggestions. There were no issues with lost appointments or paperwork. They squeezed us in immediately for sick visits and the doctors (not remote nurses!) always call back promptly to answer questions. Insurance: They take my new insurance (GHI), which is much-hated, and I haven't had any issues with claims or reimbursements.Based on a January 2015 birth

    Comment:  Just adding a shout out for Dr. Gordon. We switched from another local practice after horrible waits and very rude staff. She has been amazing - worried when necessary (my son had a bladder infection which can be caused by a more serious condition) but not alarmist when not necessary (he is very skinny). She also picks up the phone after hours/calls back very quickly - we had a stomach bug this past week and talked to her about 6 times over the NYE weekend at all hours and she called in anti-nausea medicine to stop his vomiting. Very common sense, usually short waits, nice staff, we love her and her colleagues.

    Comment:  We've been very happy with Dr. Gordon's practice. Not exactly holistic, but both of the doctors we've seen there (Dr. Gordon and Dr. Ravendhran) have been very respectful of any "alternative-ish" decisions we've made i.e. our home birth, letting our midwife do our daughter's heel prick (she combined it with a checkup on me so was able to soak the heel for longer so it was less painful), delaying the Hep B vaccine, not giving iron supplements (although we did test her iron levels at 1 year), etc. They've never done the "I'm a doctor so I know best and will guilt/bully you into agreeing with me" thing. Other than the Hep B Vaccine, we stuck to the standard vaccine schedule, but I know they will accomodate alternate schedules, although I imagine they prefer not to. And while Dr. Gordon has given me fantastic advice about sleep when I've asked for it, they're not pushy about sleep training or any particular philosophy. When my daughter got eczema last winter, Dr. Ravendhran gave me a whole bunch of options to try before resorting to steroid cream, one of which worked.I also really appreciate how non-alarmist they are. My daughter had a little jaundice after she was born, which my midwife was worried about, but Dr. Gordon looked at her and said, "Let's give it a few days." (It cleared up beautifully on its own.) My daughter's also small -- tall but very skinny, like my husband -- and I'm always worrying about weight gain and a little nervous before every checkup (especially before she weaned), but Dr. Gordon's always like, "She looks great! As long as she keeps gaining..." You can kind of tell that she's been doing this a long time - she just gives great, practical advice and has a very sane perspective on things. For what it's worth, my friend, who's been trekking to the Continnum Center in Manhattan (at 27th street) since her 16-month-old was born because she really wanted a holistic approach, has been comparing notes with me and is actually thinking of switching to Dr. Gordon's practice.September 2012

    Comment:  We have been with Dr. Gordon since our son was born in May of 2011. We met with her at our first visit, when our baby was only a few days old. She is experienced, knowledgeable, pleasant, reassuring and calm. She made us--sleep-deprived, insecure, first-time parents--leave her office feeling so much better and confident about our parenting. And it has been the case ever since. Her soothing style works wonders on babies. At that first visit, our son was crying non-stop. She held him, did this rocking motion with him, and he calmed down immediately. When I needed her to call me back, she always does it promptly and answers all my questions. We highly recommend her.

    Comment:  (Review Feb.2011) We adore Dr. Gordon, and have seen her since our 5 year old was 2 days old. Specific examples, aside for the general comment that we absolutely trust her, clinically: she was FANTASTIC at distracting our daughter when she was a baby for shots - more a relief for me! Most recently, at her 4 year visit shots Dr. Gordon made sure to give the 2 accompanying baby dolls band aids too. Which they wear to this day. And, for the endless bouts of strep throat, she calls the swabs "bunny paws" - instantly fascinating and distracting my daughter, who HATED getting cultured. We still joke about it. I remember calling in the middle of the night for ear pain (and, to be clear - I rarely called for such things, but it was really, really bad) and she didn't make me feel like I was inappropriately calling, even at 2am, and helped me provide relief until the am. Finally, she was wise counsel when we needed our daughter's tonsils/adenoids removed for apnea - she met with us without her to discuss, and was very calming. INSURANCE: Oxford - it's been fine
