Patient Comments (7)

Dr. William Norris changed my life. I was diagnosed with IBS shortly after having my son over 12 years ago by my Primary Care Physician; however, recent kidney issues and reoccurring yeast and E. coli urinary infections over the last few years caused me to seek out the help of a Gastroenterologist. I am no longer living in pain, and the bacteria is completely re-balanced thanks specifically to Dr. Norris. Best decision I ever made was to call for an appointment to see him.

Dr. Norris is a professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and most importantly empathetic gastroenterology provider. He takes the time to listen to you, as the patient, with true concern; and includes your input when conducting his plan of care. With my experience, Dr. Norris has gone above and beyond to get me at a healthier standard. He was able to give me medical advice for a comorbid issue that was more beneficial to me than the actual specialist I see them for. I highly recommend Dr. Norris.

Dr Norris recently cared for my mother. He was very kind and explained things at each visit in a way that we both could understand.
Tyrone, GA |
My mother started going to Dr. Norris at the beginning of 2017. He shows genuine concern for her and listens to her issues and problems. Of course he has his busy times just like any other doctor but we truly appreciate the time he spends with her, his advice and knowledge. His nurse, Stacy, is awesome! I explained to her that I work full time so I'm not always available to attend my mom's doctor visits. She calls me after each appointment to let me know what Dr. Norris said.
