The Most Reliable Wound Care Center
in Novato, CA

I recently sustained a burn to my ankle in March which necessitated an Emergency Room visit. When the severity of the wound and the lengthy treatment needed was discussed, I was told of the new Wound Center and soon met Dr. Gordon and Irina who immediately became my new best friends. They treated me for 3 weeks until I was healed sufficiently to allow me to go on my planned vacation but continue the healing process. They showed me the items I would need and where to buy them. They were fantastic in their caring, empathy and professionalism. By the time I was healed, I felt we were good friends.

I had an accident that injured my leg and I didn’t see a doctor for over a week. I noticed that the wound was not healing so I went to the Emergency at Novato Community Hospital. They told me to see a wound specialist ASAP and they recommended Dr. Anthony Gordon at the Marin Advanced Wound Center. Dr. Gordon and Irina Shteyn, RN were absolutely fantastic and they got me through the three month ordeal. I am a little accident prone these days. After that, I had a few more accidents/falls and they saved me each time! I recommend anyone that has a wound to make an appointment with Dr. Gordon and team, as they are very competent and compassionate and will make you feel right at home.

First and foremost, Dr. Anthony Gordon and Irena Shteyn, RN, CWOCN saved my life.

I had severe wounds in both lower legs due to a severe case of cellulitis. I was in acute pain and worried about my prognosis.

Thankfully, I found Dr. Gordon and Irena. They are both highly intelligent, caring, gentle and non-judgmental. They were there for me every step of my recovery. Last Monday, my bandages come off and I am walking toward better health.

During my visits, a dear friend came with me who is a retired nurse from Marin County. After meeting both Dr. Gordon and Irena, my friend said, “WOW, these professionals are really, really good. They are giving your wound care a lot of attention, by mixing up protocols to see what will work best! They are wonderful.”

I could not agree more.
