Dr. Norton is awesome!!! I had a ruptured disc in L-4, L-5. He got me into surgery within days of my initial visit. The followup was tremendous. When I was having some issues with radiating pain in my leg following surgery, he took the time to do follow up tests to make sure the nerve damage wasn't permanent. In addition he's just a nice guy.

I have been seeing Dr Norton for a problem in my spine and I love that he comes out to get me himself in the waiting room. He explains what the MRI is showing very well and is very calm and knowledgeable. His assistant Vanessa is awesome as well and has helped me with other issues in the department. I would recommend dr norton to anyone. I have a surgery coming up and I trust him completely.

Dr. Norton was so skilled in fixing my disc problem. I have had wonderful recovery. He always sees me ON TIME and comes to get me himself when I am in the waiting room. No reservations in recommending this fine physician. He ROCKS!

I ruptured a disk in my lower back and couldn't walk without extreme pain. I had surgery with Dr. Norton and had immediate relief. Now after two years I am close to back to normal. Dr Norton is a very excellent back surgeon.

Dr. Norton is an excellent neurosurgeon. He performed brain surgery on me on July 14, 2016. His strong points include five star(*****) knowledge and experience in neuroscience; his bedside manner; his thoroughness in teaching the procedure pre-op and results post-op to patient, friends, and family. He has a calm demeanor which lessened my stress. I am so grateful to have had him as my surgeon and would recommend him 100% to anyone needing his expertise.

Very poor experience, father fell out of bed 3 times and could not get one call back from this physician for assistance on rehab facility referral. Got good help from Chris, I think a nurse who tried to run down some staff for answers. Neither the Medical Assistant nor Team Lead would get on the phone, only left Chris to deliver the news that Norton was referring my father to another Doctor to answer any questions. Horrible experience and I'll be sure to tell everyone.
