compared to other primary docs I have had in the past, I think Norris has exceptional diagnostic skills. When I asked about several conditions I have put up with for years, he was able to accurately diagnose the true condition. I really value his ability to ask the deeper question and get to a better outcome.

Great Doctor!

Excellent, Care Providers!!!
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
Seriously poor. Dr. Komo ratted off scientific terms like I should know them, questioned why I wasn't doing certain things (umm, because I wanted a second opinion?), did nothing to want me to select him as my primary care physician (not even a personal question), typed feverishly on his computer while I talked just to get his notes in, didn't even seem to do much for the wellness exam, and googled terms on the computer to explain my conditions. If a doctor is going to the internet and literally reading off the screen to tell me what I can do, it's a waste of time. He even questioned one of the sites he visited as he didn't know the source was. I had to request lab work - shouldn't this be recommended as wellness check? I will not be going back to Dr. Komo.

Overall excellent.

I came in feeling terrible--lots of green mucous, sore throat, laryngitis, no energy. As he examined my ears, throat, sinuses, his comments were everything is good, only some wheezing in the lungs for which he prescribed an inhaler (even though I had no shortness of breath) and lung X-ray which revealed no problems. His saying "Everything is good" to someone who is feeling terrible does not create confidence in the provider. There must be a better way to communicate with a viral sufferer.
