    I would like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Norton and that he was very professional. He was very thorough and he explained everything and he shared the scan with me or the ... I can't think of what he did shoot. Anyway, he showed me the picture of it and he showed me, you know where I was getting all that pain and what it was and yeah, I was just thoroughly excited.

    Excellent professional experience. Solved all medical problems & he was very interested in me as an individual. I felt best care from a provider I?ve had in years

  • Aug 05, 2019

    Dr. Ryan Norton is an excellent health-care partner as my PCP. He always involves me in the decision-making regarding my care, and he is always solicitous of my opinions and questions before discussing any health-care topic of concern. On this visit, for example, where he injected cortisone into a tendon sheath in my palm to treat a "trigger finger" syndrome, knowing my technology background he spent a couple of minutes explaining the details of the ultra-sound imaging he was doing to locate the tendon and a suitable site for the injection, and also explained what I was seeing on the imaging screen. I very much appreciate this style of interaction with my PCP.

  • Aug 03, 2019

    My provider was very prompt on his appointment and he referred me to a specialist. The only problem I have with OHSU is the specialist couldn't get me in for nearly two and a half months for a surgical procedure. So I had to contact another surgeon in portland to get in more promptly. Thank you.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    Professional and thorough.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    Yeah, Ryan, it's great.

  • Jul 27, 2019

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Dr. Norton is a great dr! Such good communication, on the ball and very proactive in tests and treatments! I wish I could have him as primary, not just sports medicine!

  • Jul 23, 2019

    Dr. Norton is a very caring and attentive doctor who is very thorough in getting to the problem of my knee pain and finding the root cause before taking other corrective measures besides physical therapy, topical ointments, and exercise stretches. After the third visit, he decided that a cortisone shot would be beneficial in my pain management regimen. I really appreciate the time that he spent exploring why my injury was not healed first before giving the shot that will subdue the pain. Thank you Dr. Norton. [Name]
