Outstanding doctor. Loves his patients and it shows. His surgical skills are best I have seen. I was in the medical field for 28 years and this doctor is the best of the best.

I am so thankful for Dr. Norwood, Jenny, and the entire staff. It was very important to me to find the right doctor when researching prior to surgery. Dr. Norwood was the perfect fit. He is kind and encouraging. I am out over a year from surgery but the care is still topnotch. Recently I was not feeling well and had to call the office after hours. Dr. Norwood called me back within ten minutes and spent time on the phone with me. Grateful for a caring doctor! I would highly recommend!

Him and his staff are very caring and very honest on what procedure is in your best interest for what your facing. They are the most honest and professional team I've ever met. I had a double mastectomy, and him and his team made me feel confident and comfortable every step. They are excellence at its best and I will definitely refer anyone facing surgery to them.
