I've been going to Dr. Norwood for many years for routine skin checks and minor issues. Then, one day, melanoma. He removed it and sent me to UConn for further treatment and he followed up on my progress. I felt he was genuinely interested in how I was doing and cared about achieving a successful outcome. He takes time with patients, answers questions and has a good "bedside manner."

Has no compassion. 15 yr patient,last year went on Obamacare. Was dropped as a patient, could not get prescription creams that allow me to go out in the sun. Lost my job, thankfully found new doctor before I lost my home. Could not believe he would write for my prescriptions and let me suffer. Very cold man.

Dr. Norwood is simply one terrific doctor! I have suffered with psoriasis and eczema for years with short periods of relief. Dr. Norwood took the time to explain and offered me many options for treatment. He successfully got the skin condition under control. He also spent much time with paperwork and correspondence with the insurance company and drug manufacturer to get them to cover the drug. He is the one out of ten dermatologists that just doesn't hand out cream and see you in six months
