Very good surgeon. Diagnosis’s my condition, preform the surgery and explained the findings. Explained everything to me before he made a cut. Waiting room was small. The reception he has should not be the first person you see. She does not have an inviting personality. Once you get past her everyone else is very pleasant. She will make people has a second opinion about seeing Dr Norem.

Haven't even met him yet but finding information on him is next to impossible. No pictures, no reviews. Makes me want to try to find another doctor. He's like a great secret
