    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).

    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.

    I was very happy with the medical experience. I went in with the 8 1/2 pain level and after he injected my arm I was down to a 3, most of the time, almost all of the time, and I was very satisfied with the injection this time that he put in my shoulder, and he's very informative, and very thorough, and his opinions and his knowledge. I appreciate him very much. Thank you.

  • Dec 02, 2018

    Very helpful and the solutions have been very effective

  • Dec 02, 2018

    I had an amazing experience with Dr. Norton so far. He has helped me in my journey to feeling better overall and he's given me referrals to other departments that can assist me as well. And I'm just at the very beginning of everything that I need to do. But I finally feel for the first time that the doctors listening to me and paying attention to my needs and my wants and he's consistent he's not getting up on me. And for the first time in a really long time my faith has been restored in my doctor and I owe a lot to Dr. Norton.

  • Dec 01, 2018

    When I was unable to secure a last-minute appointment with my primary, the OHSU team got me in to see Dr. Norton at the Beaverton office. Dr. Norton was friendly and professional and made me feel comfortable. He listened and discussed the situation with me in a manner that was respectful (too often not something doctors do). He addressed my issues and referred me for some follow-up that I needed. I would recommend him to others without hesitation.

  • Nov 30, 2018

    Dr. Norton is well versed in working with children. He is attentive and asks a lot of engaged questions.

  • Nov 29, 2018

    My interactions with Dr. Norton have been great. Our appointments have not felt rushed and I feel that he is really listening. Though my Achilles injury is not debilitating, it is important to me because I love to run. I am making good progress with input from Dr. Norton and my physical therapist. I highly recommend Dr. Norton!

  • Nov 09, 2018

    He listened to what I had to say, then asked questions. Talked about what he thought the issue was, then told me what he wanted to try and why.He didn?t make me feel like he was just trying to get through as many patients as he could.

  • Nov 07, 2018

    Dr. Ryan Norton is a true professional. I felt most comfortable and was able to talk about my medical history and my current needs.
