      Skilled, caring physician. Fantastic staff. Takes the fear out of a surgical procedure. HIGHLY recommend both Dr. Norman and his staff.
      in Marietta GA |
      I came to Tampa to have a parathyroidectomy. My case was more complicated due to a large nodule on my thyroid which was behind a vocal cord that was not where it was expected to be. Dr. Lopez, Dr. Norman, and Dr. Boone made an excellent team! I had a smooth procedure and even though I had to have a port installed, I still left the same day (no overnight stay). Dr. Lopez called to check on me and answered my questions. I have never had such excellent care from an exceptional medical team.

      I went to the Norman Parathyroid Clinic in Tampa to have surgery to remove a parathyroid tumor after three years of being diagnosed as hyperparathyroid by my internist, but told to wait for surgery because my blood levels of calcium and PTH were not high enough. I had no physical symptoms like kidney stones or osteoporosis, but did suffer from what my doctor said was bursitis in my left hip. After surgery to remove one bad parathyroid in Tampa I am pain free and have only a small scar.

      THE MOST HIGHLY SKILLED AND EXPERIENCED PARATHYROID SURGEONS ANYWHERE. HIGHLY PATIENT CENTERED. I FELT A BOND THE FIRST TIME I SPOKE WITH THEM. THEIR STAFF SHARED THE SURGEONS' VISION. EVERYONE DEVOTED TO SOLVING MY PARATHYROID PROBLEM. THE BEST. DR. L. PLEASANT HILL, CALIFORNIA
      in Pueblo, CO |
      Hyperparathyroidism in not all that common and few doctors and surgeons have experience in treating it correctly. I was so grateful to find the Norman Parathyroid Clinic in Tampa, Florida! Dr. Norman has pioneered the minimally invasive surgical procedure and has decades of experience on thousands of patients. Get your surgery done right the first time like I did. Have it done by the Norman Parathyroid Center. It is worth the travel and expense. Their website is great, full of information.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
