There’s an old saying – If you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything.
Sidney Gordon knows that first hand.
As successful entrepreneur in the finance industry, Gordon opened Core Medical Group in 2010, his mission: To ensure that no one has to suffer the crippling affects of hormonal imbalance.
“I experienced major body trauma when I was 25 years-old,” said Gordon. “For the next two years I experienced symptoms of Low T (Low Testosterone) and didn’t even know it. I had no sex drive, I couldn’t sleep had high stress that I couldn’t control and no matter how hard I worked out, I could not hold any muscle tone. It was the hardest time of my life.”
It doesn’t take a traumatic event to cause hormonal imbalance.
A study done by New England Research Institute found that one out of four men over 30 have low testosterone levels.
Gordon sought help. He saw four different doctors, nothing worked until he sought out a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) specialist. Within five weeks he was back to normal and then some.
It was through his recovery and coming back from symptoms that simply sucked the life out of him, that Gordon knew he would devote his professional life to giving people back theirs.
“Hormone replacement therapy changed my life. From that point on I was so interested in it that I spent all my down time researching and learning about how it all works. I found my way into the circles of some of the most respected doctors in the industry and learned as much as I could from them. After much due diligence, I decided it was time to open Core Medical Group.”
The most important thing for Gordon was finding the right medical director — someone with stellar credentials to oversee the protocols for each patient, ensuring that Core would bring them only the very best care.
Gordon found just what he was looking for in Dr. Elliot Lach, MD, FACS, a renown expert in hormone replacement therapy (HRT), cosmetic and plastic surgery for more than 30 years.
Lach received his undergraduate Bachelor’s of Science degree from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA. Attended Yale University School Of Medicine where he received his Doctorate of Medicine in 1981 and did his fellowship at Harvard Medical School in 1987.
Rounding up a team of experts was a critical step toward Gordon’s goal of helping both men and women achieve optimal health.
Another step was ensuring that Core’s patients receive only the best pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, they had to be beyond reproach. After much research Gordon chose to work exclusively with APS Pharmacy. APSmirrors Core’s commitment to quality. All of their products go through rigorous batch testing and strict sterility standards.
He must be onto something.
Core opened in 2010 and in just five years Core is now responsible for the health and recovery of more than 4,500 patients in four locations.
What brought 4,500 patients to Core? Word of mouth. Happy, healthy client’s whose lives have been changed by HRT. Core’s patients are our walking advertisements. Core gains clients mainly by referrals. Our patients are telling their friends about restoring their vitality, their energy — getting their mojo back. Their results not only speak for themselves, they’re apparent, written all over the faces of our clients — let’s face it when you feel better, you look better.
That and the quality of care. For Gordon, patients are the priority — no one should feel like a number. He’s been there done that. After walking out of four different doctor’s offices because he felt unheard. At Core, Gordon wants patients to feel like VIPs. They get completely personalized service and individual attention. He wants to build relationships with clients. How do we do that? By listening to each and every one of our patients concerns and then taking them on one at a time. We take the time our patients need.
Growing older shouldn’t be equated with getting weak, sick and unhealthy.
They symptoms of hormonal imbalance are the same symptoms we equate with aging:
• Decreased Energy
• Reduced Sex Drive
• Mood Changes – Depression, Mood Swings, Stress, Irritability, Anger
• Sexual Dysfunction – Erectile Dysfunction
• Unwanted Body Changes – Reduced Muscle Mass, Increase in Body Fat, Decreased Bone Strength
“We’re told to expect to feel like this that it’s just ‘the normal aging process,’ accepting this as part of the process — well, that’s just part of the problem,” said Gordon.
His belief in HRT is so great that Gordon has taken the show on the road, presenting what Core has to offer to some major players including a prestigious high-end auto maker. After hearing what Core brings to the table, these national corporations have partnered with us to take care of their most important assets – their employees. They want them in tip-top health, with the kind of internal fire that Core can bring.
It’s this energy that surrounds the organization led by Gordon. It’s reciprocal, you get it and you give it. It was the same fuel he had when he started as an entrepreneur helping others.
As a successful mortgage broker, Gordon helped people accomplish their dreams of home ownership which gave him a lot of personal satisfaction. Now he’s taken that to the next level both personally and professionally through founding Core Medical Group
“I thought then that I was helping people in their lives to the fullest extent by making their dreams of homeownership happen. But now, after helping people get back into shape, reverse sexual dysfunction and hormone deficiencies, balance their hormones and increase people’s ability to take on their day – I truly feel I could not be more effective in changing lives and helping others.”
