When the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Television and the Media named Dr. Gordon “the most influential doctor in America,” they were referring, tongue-in-cheek, to Dr. Gordon’s role, as the medical script consultant, in eliminating lollipops from the office of “Doctor Weston,” lead character on the sitcom “Empty Nest.”
After two years of consulting on television scripts, sets, and ideas, Dr. Gordon was named CBS TV’s Medical Consultant for Children’s programming. He also worked for five years on ABC Television as the on-air medical correspondent for the “Home Show,” and continues to consult regularly for television and movies.

Busy as he is, Dr. Gordon finds that his most challenging job is “being a good husband and the best possible parent to my daughter.”
A traditional MD with a homeopathic approach, Dr Blumstein has quite a fan club.
“I am proud to say that during my 7 yr old’s Kindergarten year, there were 2 students, who did not fall ill during flu season and my daughter was one; the other student was taking the same immune boosting supplement that Dr. Nancy recommends – Sambucus. We were diligent about giving our daughter the supplement every morning and I crossed my fingers sending her off to school. Luckily, she escaped whatever strain of the flu was going around the class. She will occasionally get sick but it’s a quick turnaround.” – Monica N. on Yelp
“Dr Blumstein is the best!!! She has been my son’s doctor since he was born at St. John’s (not sure if she still goes there). She is a mom first and her patient care shows that. She always first offered a homeopathic remedy to treat upset stomach or reflux, fussiness or teething. We did food elimination later for mucus and allergies. Always a natural solution before medicine, which was my first choice. She spaced vaccinations out as requested and together we decided my son’s immunization schedule. My son is now 7 years old and we moved offices with Dr. B and would follow her if she moved again” – Cassandra R. on Yelp
