“I fell in love with Women’s Health during my third year of Medical school,” said Dr. Gordon. “I find the spectrum of care from birth through menopause offers great variety and maintains my passion to serve patients.”

“My philosophy of care would be described as a partnership between the patient and myself. I consider myself the guide or health coach in their journey towards wellness. I enjoy focusing on all aspects of the patient and use Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs as the starting platform for Health.”

“I desire open lines of communication with all patients. I strive to be the best physician I can be for them by living the very elements of health that I ask from them.”

“The best part of my work is setting goals with the patient based on objectives that we identify during our discussions of what health is. It may be pregnancy planning, high risk pregnancy, weight loss, cardiovascular disease, mental health, or general prevention medicine; whatever it is I am committed to finding workable solutions for mutually acceptable results.”

“I am focused on patient experience and safety. I am known for being timely and keeping the team focused on the patient at all times. I am also known for my direct approach to problem solving while showing the utmost respect.”

Dr. Gordon earned her Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of Toledo College of Medicine & Life Science and completed her residency training in Obstetrics/Gynecology at the Medical College of Ohio Hospitals in Toledo. She is board certified in Obstetrics/Gynecology.

Her special interests and procedures include minimally invasive surgery, PCOS, weight loss, addressing addiction and pre-pregnancy health planning.

Dr. Gordon’s hobbies include motorcycle riding, bicycling, exercise, boating, scuba diving, reading, music, meditation, and gardening. She has five children ranging from school-aged to adulthood as well as four grandchildren. Dr. Gordon adds that she is of Scottish descent and is excited to attend the Highland Festival.

MidMichigan Health has two other OB/Gyn providers in Clare: Andrew Brown, M.D. and Elvira M. O’Brien, M.D. They deliver babies and perform surgeries at MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland. The addition of Dr. Gordon to the Clare staff gives patients a choice of hospitals for surgeries and births with the convenience of having appointments close to home.
