I love this guy! He is personable and an excellent dr. I had gone into emergency on Saturday with a detached retina. He met me at his office on Sunday morning and did the surgery that day! A Sunday! I couldn't believe it! He must be a very caring person to do that!

I would be blind if it were not for Dr. Norman. He has been my ophthalmologist for 20 years and I would not let anyone else near my eyes. I trust him implicitly as a person and as a surgeon. He is a brilliant physician with a warm and kind heart. Some of his staff have been with him as long as I have been seeing him. To those who complain about a long wait in his waiting room I would say that he is worth the wait. I will wait as long as necessary to see him because he is the best around.
