Easy to find office, waiting room was full when I arrived. They tried to move people quickly, but not rushing. Dr. was extremely nice and informative. Took time to explain everything, left within 50 minutes of my appointment time.

The staff was friendly. Dr. Noroff was pleasant, direct, answered all of my questions. She gave me hope. Although, it was the first visit, but I am hoping she will find the root of my issue and work diligently to resolve it.

Great bedside manner and I felt like she addressed all of my concerns, however when it came to following up regarding a prescription that needed a pre-authorization it took several reminders from me for her office to address it. The prescriptionstill didn't get approved - apparently the doctor is supposed to try other options before prescribing whatever it is she gave me.

Dr. Noroff was pleasant and knowledgeable but I felt like she rushed me thru my visit, and didn’t ultimately try to explain what she was doing. The office was clean and neat but reminded me of a nurse’s office more thananything. Appt was first thing in the morning and I walked in to a medical receptionist that was less than enthusiastic to greet me

Dr. Noroff was informative, easy to talk to and thorough with annual skin examination. She gave detailed responses to all of my questions and took additional time to educate me on skin changes I should be aware of; this is notsomething I have experienced in many doctor visits. I highly recommend!

I arrived exactly on time and took about 5 minutes to fill out a new patient form with the receptionists (who were lovely and very friendly). However, I still had to wait about 10 minutes to see Dr. Noroff. Aside from having to wait, she was fantastic

I came in for a very minor issue but Dr. Noroff addressed all my questions without me even asking. She laid out all my options for me and gave me a professional opinion about what would be the best choice. Ileft with treatment and confidence that my issue would clear up. Beyond that, she took the time to examine the other spots on my body just to make sure everything was fine, even the spots I didn't come in for. I left the office feeling taken care of and validated.

Dr, Noroff was very professional and had a sense of humor. She explained everything she was going to do before actually doing it. Told me why I had to come back in 2 weeks and what she was going to dothen. Asked if I understood everything and if I had any questions. Her office was crowded when I arrived 20 minutes before my appointment, but I only waited 20 minutes past my appointment time. Some of her patients were accompanied by a friend or family member, so it looked worse than it should have.

Dr. Noroff is absolutely amazing. She eased my anxiety about a pigmentation I had that I was afraid was Melanoma. She was so sweet and did my biopsy the same day. I would 100% recommend her.

Wait time was more then 30 minutes. Appointment itself took several minutes. Doctor did a quick examination. Though did not suggest explaining the cause of my condition or its treatment. She was in a kind of hurry to give a prescription and conclude the appointment.

The office staff were "ok" there was a long wait to be seen but to be fair there is a sign in the waiting area that says that longer wait times is possible due to other procedures. Other than that Dr.Noroff was very personable and friendly as well as knowledgeable.

It was my first visit with her. I came to her with a few concerns and right away she diagnosed the underling cause and will be able to treat the secondary issues as soon as the underling issue is resolved in a few days.
