DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!! After leaving messages for over a month, I finally get a call back and was told "you have madicare/Medicaid. I'll have to see if the doctor will accept you. I'll call you back". That was a week and a half ago. The person I spoke with was rude and condescending. I thought doctors took a Hippocratic oath to help people not decide if she'll make any money. Rude staff and snobby doctor deserve each other. I'd leave No Stars if the option was available.

Dr Norton is extremely smart and very caring. She not only listens well, she is very funny and shares knowledge and experience with ease. She is no nonsense when it comes to procedures and treatment. Her background as an internist and a specialist gives her an incredible overview of general health concerns. Her office staff is excellent and kind and efficient. It is a privilege to have her as a physician.

Cynthia at the front desk very friendly and helpful. The location is hard to find. I will go out of my way to see anyone else after being treated to the hostility of support staff. Inexcusable and unprofessional to call patients nasty names, especially when there are so many others within earshot - a few staff apologized for their co-worker's behavior. A patient in the waiting room said, "She just threatened you." Why return???

Cynthia returned my call and said we don't want u as a patient because u have lupus. I have have rheumatoid arthritis also I replied. Nope u have lupus so we don't want to see u very very rudely. Bye. I had already talked to Someone about getting records transferred from out of town rheumatologist. Whoever the first person is didn't know Cynthia didn't want me there. Looks like some training of office staff is in order

She is the only Rheumatologist in Santa Fe and she does not take Medicaid, which puts an unfair burden on UNM. Currently the wait for UNM Rheumatology is 1 year. Patients must suffer for an entire year because Dr. Norton feels she wouldn't make a large enough profit from serving disabled populations. What happened to "First do no harm"? I guess it doesn't count if the paycheck isn't big enough.
Horrible. All you get when we call the office is a lengthy machine. No real person to talk to or schedule with n a call back a long time after u leave a message. The scheduler named Cindy is rude and acts like she does not want you seen there and doesn't want to help you. No compassion for patients what so ever.
