At Gordon and Associates, we've earned a reputation for creating value within the industry and bringing quality back into medicine. We've come up with designs and development formulas for 'putting it back together,' and adding immeasurably to the value equation. "Professionally, it's rewarding," concludes Gordon, "but nothing makes us more proud than the relationships we've built with our clients. Also, it's especially rewarding that our dedicated professional staff continues to build upon this legacy - each and every day."
"Our mission," says owner and chief architect Michael Gordon, AIA, "is to design and develop 'a well place' that provides both efficiency and comfort as a product of the design - for patients, physicians and staff. Increased efficiency and productivity lets doctors see more patients per day and improves daily attitudes and quality of life for all concerned. At Gordon Architects, we understand physicians' practices and needs. What sets us apart is that we understand the business of their profession. It's a matter of controlling costs in their own surgery centers. The commonality in the centers we've designed is that doctors see more patients per day which is more cost-effective each and every day."
