Easily my most favorite thing about Dr. Norwood is that he is so easy to talk to but when it comes to your medical needs he is aggressive with his approach to any & all issues. He is absolutely worth seeing worth the wait and it doesn't hurt that this doctor is very easy on the eyes wink wink . Intelligent knowledgeable and did I say easy on the eyes . . A patient forever !

We my wife and I have been Dr Norwood's patients for since 1995. My wife has several severe medical problems and I have diabetes. I have his cell number and have called him several times in emergency. He has always been there for us and my wife wouldn't be able to walk without him.

Dr Norwood has been nothing but kind and generous to me. He is very straight forward and has your best interest. He knows exactly what he is doing and I trust in his abilities. You can tell when you come into the office that he has had a lot of experience and knows how to handle a variety of different people.
in Clovis, CA |
After reading reviews from patients saying all he did was dx them with depression,I was hesitant, but optimistic. He didn't even feel my neck, and disregarded my thyroid nodule that has been found. Rather he zoned in on my symptoms, which are consistent with hypothyroidism, and dx'd me with depression and prescribed me with depression meds, including Ritalin. I won't be going back and am getting a second opinion.
in Fresno, CA |
I was charged for an appointment I never was informed I had. Someone in the office had taken down my information wrong from another doctor so I was never contacted about the appointment. Never even bothered to send a letter, which of course they had my correct address. Not a word from this clinic. I've called and written letters and they continued to charge me. Now I am forced into paying it because it went to collections. Incompetent people who obviously don't care.
in Clovis, CA |
I have been a patient of Dr Norwood for over 12 years. Dr. Norwood and his staff go above and beyond for their patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
in Clovis, CA |
After reading some of the reviews on Dr Norwood, I thought he would not be a compassionate person. I'm a patient of his now two years and I really like him. He's staight foward, compassionate, very helpful and has been willing to help me out more than almost any other Doctor I've seen. Nice guy, smart and I don't wait for a long time at my appointments. I would definitely recommend him to others.
in Los Banos, CA |
I do NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR. His ego is totally put of control. On the other hand, if you want to become addicted to heavy painkillers, he's your guy! When the hospital doctors discovered the drugs Dr. Norwood prescribed, they were all seriously concerned enough to call him. His response? He refused to treat me. Very unprofessional.
in Fresno, CA |
Dr. Norwood is professional, yet warm and friendly in his demeanor, as is his entire staff. There is a very pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. Doctor takes all the time necessary for exam, communication, etc., in my experience. While that may mean a little more time in the waiting room, when I leave I feel confident. All my questions have been answered, I know what to expect, I'm familiar with the medication prescribed, why it was prescribed and what it will do, as well as side effects.
