Have you seen Dr. Paul C Norwood Jr?

Love this doctor!!!

I love, love Dr. Norwood! From the very first visit he nailed my diagnosis on the head! The gentleman who rooms for him is so fun and such a genuine person, always smiling and making small talk. Definitely makes me feel very comfortable and not at all like I'm sitting in a doctor's office. Dr. Norwood takes his time with me and always makes sure he answers any questions I have for him. If I could change anything in this office it would be the lady at the front desk. I don't like coming into an office and seeing the receptionist throw attitude around, or not answer phones when that's part of her job. But besides that, the whole office is great and I would recommend him to anyone! :)

Registered Nurse

He has been my #1 MD choice for 20+ years, takes time and listens, always available after hours for legitimate concerns. He has exceptional understanding of Major Depression and how it relates to hormones and chemical imbalances. Keeps up with cutting-edge info., open to alternate approaches unless he feels they're inappropriate. He is hesitant to expend himself if patient is not willing to follow through with recommendations or is "playing games", don't try to manipulate him, you'll lose. I have known him to misdiagnose, but he didn't have all the information he needed. Be sure you are giving him accurate and complete symptoms.

AVOID THIS DOCTOR

I went to Dr. Norwood presenting with symptoms of hyperthyroidism (abnormal TSH, insomnia, unexplained weight loss, heart palpitations, nervousness). He did not palpate my thyroid, nor look at my blood test results. He diagnosed me as having depression and gave me prescriptions for Wellbutrin, Celexa and Ritalin. After going to two real doctors, I was diagnosed with toxic multinodular goiter and hyperthyroidism. I had a total thyroidectomy in December, which relieved my symptoms and has allowed me to return to a normal life. So Dr. Norwood, I managed to "cure" my depression with a TOTAL THYROIDECTOMY.

Exceptional Doctor

Dr. Norwood is one of the best physicians period. He is very intelligent, caring and will absolutely recommend referrals outside of his specialty. He is one of the reasons my father is alive today. Great doctor.

Two Stars

Dr Norwood has a strange personality. He stood against the wall with his arms crossed. He was confused why I was there and would not listen to me. Thank God I brough a copy of my ultrasound repert. I asked him to read it. After that he stated to treat me better.

Dr. Norwood is the greatest

A very caring man, his bedside manneris like no other. My husband had a stroke and I immediately called him, he was on his way to San Francisco leaving on an extended trip, he said he was sorry but had left some very responsible doctors to answer his calls, in the ER as I spoke with their ER doctor about 45 minutes later, in walks Dr. Norwood. In our estimation he is #1 in the nation!

This guy is in the wrong profession

This doctor thinks too much of himself, he's very arrogant and cares more about himself than his patients. I get the feeling that he thinks that all patients are in perfect health and are making things up...even if you had diabetes for 40 years. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone!!!.
