Dr. Norris is always a pleasure to see. She is willing to give me as much time as I need to have my questions answered and, in this case, discuss the treatment I was scheduled to have to have today. I cannot say enough positive things about her, her staff and the overall practice. My primary care physician recommended her a number of years ago and I have seen Dr. Norris regularly since then. If I could, I'd giver her and her practice ten stars!

I have been a patient of Dr. Norris for over 20 years. She has successfully treated every skinn issue that I brought to her office, including my children inherited acne, which was very bad. My children both have beautiful skin, thanks to Dr. Norris. I find her bedside manner very personable, attentive and responsive. Communication is easy and I have never felt rushed.

Dr. Norris was fantastic, so glad I saw her! The wait...not so much. I don't think medical offices think about people taking time off work to sit around their offices. That's our PTO. A call or text letting us know they are running late and to come in 30 minutes later (as an example) would be much appreciated.

Dr. Norris is an amazing dermatologist. We met her originally via a consultation at OHSU. My spouse and I each see her and we are always so very impressed with her excellent car. She KNOWS her field, she KNOWS her patients. She makes you very comfortable even if you have a head to toe exam. ( Yes, everyone should have one EVERY year.) Her staff is equally impressive. We give her 15 stars out of a 1-10 range. SERIOUSLY.
