Review of Dr. Norman

-

I have a fusion already in my neck. Had x-rays and an MRI taken. They show I have two bulging disk in my neck. He said they are not impinging any nerves. Than I showed him where I hurt the most in my neck and he said you may have a pinched nerve. Did he not just contradict himself. That was the only time he even touched me. His NP that came in before him checked me. I also asked about my sciatic nerve pain. She said your sciatic nerve is in your leg. But it starts in the back. Ugh!!

Review of Dr. Norman

-

I was referred to Dr. Norman by a general surgeon in the same building. Dr. Norman was very successful in removing a begin neurofibroma from my leg with zero nerve damage. Given how my disease works and the potential likelyhood for issues after surgery I was a bit nervous. But Dr. Norman had experience with my disease and resection of these tumors in the past. Should I have another fibroma and if it’s in Dr. Norman’s expertise I would certainly choose him to be my surgeon again.

Review of Dr. Norman

- in Straw Plains, TN |

In June 2016 wife was referred to Dr. Norman with lower back pain. Review of MRI revealed spinal stenosis, herniated disk and vertebra deterioration. Suggested surgery that "should fix the issue". When asked about fusion surgery he refused. In August 2016 my wife still in pain -couldn't walk without a walker. Dr ordered a second MRI which revealed the need for additional surgery. Today we are facing fusion surgery after new surgeon found the origin surgery inadequate surgery.

Review of Dr. Norman

-Sevierville Tennessee |

This Dr is extremely pompous and egotistical. He preformed an Discectomy on my back. I was having pain and trouble walking and standing. I was using a cane to walk. I returned to his office after 6 weeks post surgery. I was still having pain and still using my cane to walk. He told me I was ready to return to work full duty. I was a firefighter/EMT for 23 years. It was like he didn't care about nothing had changed. You are ready to go back to a fire tuck. I could barley walk or stand.

Review of Dr. Brown

Went to this doctor with an MRI, and report showing 3 bulging dics in my neck , stenosis, and arthritis. He said there was nothing on the MRI to explain my pain, and that I need to see a psychiatrist.

Review of Dr. Norman

- in Clinton, TN |

I was dianoised with a softball size brain tumor in 2014 when I received my diagnosis needless to say I was VERY scared. I was referred to Dr. Norman by my family physician. When I went for my initial appointment he was very honest and very professional. My sister which is a critical care nurse went with me and my husband for my evaluation, she to was VERY impressed with his bedside manner and professionalism. I HIGHLY recomend this physician. With GOD & Dr. Norman I was in Great Hands!!!!!

Review of Dr. Brown

- in Knoxville, TN |

Great experience, Doctor Brown correctly diagnosed my sciatica issues and some other issues in my spine. He operated early one morning and I was able to go home the next day. I was also able to go back to work the next week. I am happy to say there is no pain anymore and no side effects from the operation. I highly recommend Doctor Brown and his staff.

Review of Dr. Norman

- in Knoxville, TN |

Dr. Norman was spot on with my lower back issues after examining my MRI. He knew that I need immediate relief and NOT 4 weeks of therapy to get me up and walking to function in my life again. He immediately suggested facet joint injections (L4-L5) for my lower back and the appointment was set up that week. This is my first time dealing with him and I would totally recommend anyone to seek his opinion. I am very happy to find him since Dr. Eugene Vargas has moved away from Knoxville.

Review of Dr. Norman

Only saw Dr. Norman one time and was very impressed with the advice given that I did not need surgery. Did not need to follow up, and was discharged right then. Would recommend him to family and friends.

Review of Dr. Norman

- in Clinton, TN |

I really, really like Dr. Norman. Granted he does not sugar coat things---if this is what you want go to someone else. If you want a doctor that will look you in the eye and answer you honestly and tell you the truth then go see him. He was great. I really got the feeling that he knows his stuff.
