Love Dr. Norlin he always takes time to talk directly to my children and not to just to me like they are not there, like I have experienced with other providers. More than that I love how he takes the approach that the parents know what is best for their children and he is there to educate and direct and provide his professional advice.

May 05, 2015

Dr. Norlin is seriously the best. Our family is moving, and I don't think we'll find anyone as good as he is. He cares for our daughter as an individual, respects any silly question we ask as parents, offers sound and logical advice, and takes the time to sit and listen. We are really going to miss him!!

February 12, 2015

Dr. Norlin is an amazing individual who is child-focused. He asked pertinent questions and provided himself as a resource in a way that landed very well with our kids.

Dr. Norlin is truly the best pediatrician ever. He handled our questions calmly--even when we did not do what he had recommended last time. He even offered suggestions if we were too wimpy to have our daughter cry it out. He is very intelligent and kind.

August 08, 2014

Dr. Norlin's bed side manner was lacking. My husband and I felt that we/our son was just another patient. We were rushed through the visit. I had several questions, as a new mom with a six month old that I wanted to ask but didn't. I will not be retuning to this provider nor will I recommend.

June 25, 2014

Dr. Norlin has been our pediatrician since 2005. We are always impressed by his care and attention. We feel like his favorite patients every time we come.

January 29, 2014

I was very impressed with the care and concern that Dr. Norlin treated my daugter with. I felt that he did well at listening and understanding our concerns and that he was very thorough in his clinical assessment. I was even more impressed with his calling to follow up with us on her care the next day. He recommended taking her to PCMC for dehydration and even called after for a follow up. I have never had a physician show that much care or concern for my children before. So thank you! I cant tell you how helpful and how much that meant to us. This is the best experience we have had at the Universiy Clinic 6 before.
