    It was a quick and easy visit. All my issues were resolved.

    Very good experience. Dr listened carefully to my concerns and offered options to proceed further if I want. His manner was matter-of -fact, calm, and efficient.

    Dr. Norton is the first doctor. I've talked to you about my problem who've really listen and understood what I was talking about and actually made an accurate diagnosis before test results with back.

  • Apr 24, 2019

    Everyone was great!

  • Apr 17, 2019

    He was quite sensitive to my issues, listening attentively as I described my symptoms and prior treatments. He explained my condition to me in terms that I could easily understand. He had x-rays of my back taken while I was there, eliminating the need for a return trip. He followed up with a reading of the x-rays, a prescription for lidocaine patches, and a referral to OHSU's Comprehensive Pain Center. He did everything I needed him to do.

  • Apr 12, 2019

    informative and concise feedback delivered in such way that my eight year old would understand it. highly reassuring.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Dr. Norton is a great doctor and coming from a running background is very helpful as he can understand the needs of the active athlete. It's helpful to gain his perspective as a doctor and as an athlete (runner) to help determine what the best course of action would be going forward.

    Dr. Norton is great. He is very knowledgeable, and he explained everything that was going on with [Name]'s leg very thoroughly and he answered all our questions, and we didn't have to wait to see him. We had a great appointment. Thank you.

  • Jan 30, 2019

    Dr Norton is always professional, courteous, and he is a good listener. If he is able to, he spends extra time beyond the allotted appointment time to address as many concerns as his patients have. One great quality Dr Norton has is that he always explains his thought process and reasoning behind the treatment decisions he recommends. He also presents as many reasonable alternative treatments as he feels are safe and explains what he thinks the pros and cons of each will be, and then helps his patients choose an option that they are comfortable with (within his medical judgment including efficacy, safety, and patient comfort). I am very satisfied with Dr Norton's care and feel lucky that he is my primary care doctor (because when I first made an appointment with him it was at random).

  • Dec 21, 2018

    I was fortunate that he happened to have a cancellation so that I could get in to see him. He listened to me and was very helpful. He was friendly and personable and made me feel at ease. When I told him I needed a refill on one of my prescriptions, he ordered it right on the spot. He asked if I had any questions and he explained things to me. He was very good.
