Verified Patient Reviews
Highly recommend ! Very nice and understanding of my elderly father with dementia .
They were good, but I was confused as to why the nurse was nice but didn't introduce herself . Also I am a nurse too and found it odd that the nurse did the entire procedure. Also there was another woman in the room who I still don't have any clue who she was. Also maybe the "nurse" was an arnp, but who knows because she never introduced herself.overall I'm glad the procedure is done and over with I think they did a good job and they were all very nice.
I was treated by Holly...She was awesome. So was the entire staff
Great, it's why I continue to see Dr. Norman
Excellent! Entire staff was very professional and nice. Very thorough and discussed issues at length! My new doctor!
The receptionist was so rude to me after giving me the date of my follow up appointment i opened my mouth to aske a question and before I could even begin my guestion she said NO with an attitude.
It was great!!!
It was quick, fast and easy.
Robert Norman was at a school but his assistant was great. I have seen Robert before and I'm impressed with his mannerism, intelligence and professionalism.
I was very unpleased with my visit. I went in to find out if accutane would be a good fit for my acne. The ARNP walked into the room AN HOUR AND A HALF after my appt time, did not even glance at my skin and just said she would prescribe it after I did the blood work. UM OKAY? Accutane is a very aggressive medicine shouldn't she have looked at my skin before determining whether I needed it or not? Not to mention she didn't even go over any details about the medication with me. I was told I had to get blood work but they gave me no further instructions on that. I don't know the whole visit seemed rushed and unprofessional
the office was over crowded. Wait time was over 2 hours. Staffs were friendly and welcoming. They just need to work on proper scheduling though.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and caring people there. They were very thorough and made me feel as though I had their complete attention. I was not rushed through.
Exceeded expectations. Extremely knowledgeable, excellent bedside manner (both Doc's and staff. Can't thank them enough!
Dr. Norman and Dr. Eng saw me today for an annual skin exam and I am very happy with their thoroughness and bedside manner. The office staff is pleasant and helpful and I will definitely be coming back.
The staff and the doctors were very nice and explain everything to me in detail. GREAT!!!!
I never met dr Norman but was well cared for by his staff.
It was my first dermatology appointment in my life so I didn't know what to expect or have anything else to compare it to. I didn't like that 3 different employees took my information including the doctor. Nothing worse than repeating yourself over and over!! Overall I thought the appointment was good, just seemed a little rushed which made me uncomfortable. I am going back soon so I will get a second opinion!
I found front desk staff to be very friendly and efficient. The professional staff was precise and to the point and they took good care of my son. Only negative is the waiting room is cramped.
it was a great all my questions were answered
I had severe problem on my facial skin, I was expecting a lot from this consulting, it turns out to be great positive experience with Dr. Norman and staff. He makes your comfortable before talking about your concerns. He was a positive vibe for me, which was needed. You will get personal attention from their staff, overall great confident boosting experience. Recommend to everyone. The treatment and consultation is done with equality regardless race, religion or language. I am pleased. :)
Dr. Norman is a very personable, thorough and compassionate professional. He provides an adequate amount of patient education as well. I am grateful and look forward to further care as needed.
The visit went well.But they did not take our insurance...ZocDoc said they accepted it
Took me in 45 min before appointment.
Would have been better if I did not had fill up all the forms again, because zocdocs only send one page
He is the best dermatologist I have ever had the pleasure of him being my dermatologist.
Dr and staff very pleasant.
That's an awesome visit. Really great experience.. I recommend to everyone Dr. Norman.
Very pleasant attitude, answered all my questions convincingly and explained the problem in layman terms. His intern staff was also very pleasant. Overall, a very good experience
Very friendly, made me feel comfortable. All of the staff was courteous a d professional.
I liked Dr Norman when he walked into the room. He was pleasent and professional and knew just what I needed from the visit and the best way to take care of my skin.
Dr. Norman was very efficient and professional and very personable. Answered all questions and addressed all concerns. Very satisfied with procedure.
Efficient staff, team approach to individual care and excellent follow-up.
Treated my skin cancer right away and very professionally. Radiation therapist was excellent!
Excellent service and excellent staff. Definitely recommended.
Wonderful staff! Friendly! Doctor was very informative.
Very small waiting room, which quickly became crowded. There was a bit of a wait, but later found out Dr. Norman had been delayed at another office. Dr Norman's exam and consultation far exceeded expectations, however, which resulted in my highly recommended/excellent ratings. He actually listened to what I had to say, and performed a more thorough exam than I had ever had done by any dermatologist. I very highly recommend him.
Very positive experience with Dr. Norman. Personable, interested, easy to relate to, pleasant personality and delightful and friendly staff!
The doctor and the office staff are great!. Thanks
Everyone professional and courteous
Dr Norman is professional and made me feel at ease during my visit. He saw my swollen knee infection and promptly drained it and gave me some stitches. I was there for only 30 minutes. Unbelievable !
It was good, he was very interested on my case and helped me a lot.
Doctor Robert A. Norman is phenomenal. Absolutely recommend his services to any and everyone. Even his assistants are phenomenal. They were very informative.
I like the doctor's and staff. Very professional and nice.
great doctor, great staff, would'nt go anywhere else.
I was a first time visiter. Staff was great and seem to be thorough
Excellent. ..highly recommend this Doc
I took my teenage son, he was very kind to him as well as me. Wasn't rushed at all!!!! I'll definitely refer him to others :)
Went well..very professional with quick service
He was very pleasant and had a great personality. Did not try and rush you out. I look forward to my next visit in two weeks.
The doctor and staff are helpful, professional, and quick to deal with my concerns....plus... Doctor Norman immediately viewed issues I didn't know I may have, and addressed it. He may be nipping a problem in the bud. Thank you Doctor Norman and Staff NJD
Dr. Norman is the best dermatologist out there! I live in Miami now and refuse to find a new dermatologist. He has always found a solution to my concerns and is very nice and approachable. I have absolutely no complaints!
It was great, nice staff. Parking is a bit of a problem, but other than that it was a nice experience
The staff kept pushing me to bill my insurance for extra tests that they said "weren't really necessary". I saw the doctor for less than 2 minutes. This place is miserable and I wont be back.
I was looking forward to visiting Dr. Norman's practice from the initial reviews I had read. Upon arriving the women at the front desk were very nice, and waiting out in the lobby did not take too long but much longer than I wanted. Probably about 30 min. After finally getting called into the room it was another 30 min before the doctor even showed up and he was very rushed and unprofessional. He came in and started to shine the light on my skin as I am trying to discuss my concerns with him and he didn't really explain anything to be other than when to use the medication. I waited an hour and paid a copay to speak to a professional for all of about 5 min. Completely unacceptable. Next time Dr. Norman should consider sitting down and actually taking the time to talk with his patient and explain what he thinks it may be. You cannot just say I have _____, and expect me to know exactly what it is and exactly what the medication does. You have a degree and knowledge for a reason, share it with your patients. I appreciate the samples at the end and his interest in my life like having a casual conversation, but the WAY he was doing it almost contradictory to what he was saying. Definitely will not be going back to that location.
He was very down to earth, good personality.
Very good first visit. Staff were nice. Will definitely come back.
I like his sense of humor. He makes you feel comfortable, takes his time with you.
First visit was a very good experience
This office and all the people working there was a great experience. I would recommend them for sure to anyone who needs a good dermatologist that makes you feel important.
Very busy office but one in it was a great visit. Dr. Norman was very attentive to my needs along with his entire staff.
Dr. Norman was amazing and the only reason I had to wait so long was because he got stuck in traffic behind an accident. He was very apologetic about it and saw all of the patients that were waiting very quickly, he was worth the wait!
i love dr norman
According to the front office receptionist, they can't or not allowed to print off the forms that I completed online at ZOCDOC. Consequently I had to complete a second set of forms before I could see someone.
Very good team of professionals, focused on helping. Highly recommend and I really like the web based appointment system.
He was great with my 11 year old..he made her feel very comfortable. Only downfall was I still had to fill out paperwork even though I did it thru zocdoc
Great place to go
The nurse practioner was outstanding. All of the staff were very pleasant and helpful. However, the wait before actually seeing her was just shy of an hour.
The dr was very kind genuine and sincere, Loved him.. Tho I would have liked more time with him to discuss other things.
I had to wait about an hour every time. It was not a friendly environment. One of the tech yelled at my child. I once went in and waited for an hour just to find out that the result was not in...
Dr Normans staff was very sweet and polite. Dr Norman was great too and answered all my questions. I also love the fact that him and his office did not try and sell me on any of their products in their office too. I know too many offices that try and do that.
It was terrific seem like they know what they are doing keep up the good work solved my worries
Very nice staff!
Great man and so entertaining and kind
I waited 45 minutes to see Dr. Norman and was slightly irritated about the wait. However, that irritation left when I met Dr. Norman. He is personable and thorough. I will definitely go back to Dr. Norman.
Bien lo q ahora esperar como va con el tratamiento geacias
This is THE best dermatologist and have kept his card in my wallet for many years and recommend everyone, after experiencing many Dr's and with my psoriasis, he can make all the difference in the world.
We were offered an option of rescheduling but chose not to. Once we were seen were given excellent care.
The staff is kind of rude. When got there one of my kids appointment was no schedule they couldn't find it and told me to next time pick up the phone and do it my self instead of doing it online through this website.
