Dr Norris did bladder cancer surgery on me. Before going into surgery I asked the anesthesiologist if she was aware that I had Pulmonary Fibrosis. She said no. Hadn't looked at my medical info. How dangerous that could be if there was a problem while I was under anesthesia!!! Dr Norris explained what he found and showed pictures of the cancer to my husband, but never bothered to tell me. Before the biopsy was received I asked him about his mentioning cancer in at a prior visit and he said, with a big wave of his arm "oh you have cancer". He was so insensitive & harsh I left there in tears. I mentioned that the anesthesiologist didn't know I have Pulmonary Fibrosis and he told me she didn't need to know. How scary is that. I think it's time for him to retire. Will never go back to him.

I took my 5 year old there and he made him feel very comfortable. Great doctor and great bedside manner. He did not recommend any unnecessary procedures.

He did a unnecessary prostate surgery on my 80 year old father, when everything went wrong and my dad got a contagious urine infection and ended up in a nursing home Dr norris wouldn't return my calls or the facility calls to answer question regarding how and why my dad got this infection. He should really recommend side operating o. Seniors. He should be ashamed of himself not returning calls for an infection he caused. Never will I go to that doctor again. He is cockie too

I got a vasectomy from Dr. Norris and my son had a repair for hypo spadeus when he was about 2. Both were performed extremely well. I was able to attend a party the day after my procedure. Dr. Norris is pretty serious and straightforward, but I still joked with him some. I was pretty amazed at how well my son's surgery went. When we went in after the surgery, my son was as happy as could be. We received detailed post op instructions and had no further issues.

dr. norris is a brilliant surgeon, he operated on 2 of my sons, one was major, he has been their and my urologist for over 10 years at both offices, in all that time I have not seen him with a good bedside manner , friendly or not grouchy, one single time. The only reason we continued to go to him until recently was because he is a brilliant doctor and surgeon, otherwise he did not learn good rapport and friendliness with his patients, and they all say that, read below, at Loma Linda medical sch

no concerns for his patients, no bedside manner and out of touch wit his patients, I feel he should just go ahead and retire early because he don't see patient has patients he see patients as a profit to him.
