My appointment was 3:40, I waited in the exam room until almost 5:00 until seen.


excellent, caring and thorough doctor


Dr. Norwood is an amazing doctor. I have seen a number of doctors in my past but none that actually truly acknowledge me and not just my illness. She asks real questions and ACTUALLY LISTENS. I have been seeing her for 20 years. If she ever left Henry Ford I will need to follow her.


It was great. Dr. Norwood is an excellent, compassionate and caring doctor.


I love Dr. Norwood. Although I've only been a patient of Dr. Norwood for the past three years, I feel as though I've been a life long patient. Dr. Norwood is very professional, very knowledgeable, very welcoming, very attentative to my concerns, always provides a solution to my concerns, familiar with my past history and ensures she stays on top of medical necessities for my age. Dr. Norwood is a very pleasant and genuine person who is easy to talk to and loves her profession. She always asks about my family and my well-being every time I see her. Dr. Norwood is an excellent doctor whom I would refer to my family/friends and whom I hope continues to practice for many many more years to come. Simply said, Dr. Norwood is the best!
