Our team

Cynthia Gordon, MD, JD
Medical Director

After following a circuitous career path from many years as an attorney, through the process of becoming a physician, and then serving as the medical director of an addiction treatment program, I finally found my home and calling in 2010, when I joined the IPHP team. I am board certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine. I am grateful to be in a position where I am able to confidentially and autonomously serve my healthcare colleagues as they regain personal and professional wellness and vitality.

I am fortunate to have worked with IPHP over the course of 24 years. I participated in the growth of IPHP as it evolved form the Physicians Assistance Program to the Professionals Health Program. My work primarily has been with physicians, but expanded to include other professionals. It is my privilege to be part of others’ journey toward recovery, health and wellness.
