January 23, 2017

I was very impressed! I'm 66 and have seen a lot of doctors over my years. Dr. Norton was one of the best first visits I have had. she spent an enormous amount of time with me (over an hour); did a thorough exam; gave complete and easy to understand explanation of my conditions; explained several options for treatment; and was very personable. I didn't feel like "just another patient" for her. I felt like she really cared about my problems and wanted to treat them. I am going to have surgery and feel very comfortable with Dr. Norton performing it. I would recommend her to anyone! Impressed!

January 09, 2017

Couldn't be happier with Dr. Norton!

Dr. Norton answered all my questions and concerns, gave me options for treatment, changed a medication that I shouldn't have been taking, and gave me a WRITTEN summary for me to study BEFORE I left the clinic in case I had more questions.

July 18, 2016

overly long family history taken by nurse cut into the time the physician could spend with me before her next patient. This was addressed by the doctor and may have been corrected already but my time with her was cut short with at least 15 minutes and felt a bit rushed.

July 17, 2016

I did my homework to find the right Doctor for my problem. I had seen 3 other doctors before I saw Dr. Norton. I came close to tears to finally discover a highly intelligent, confident, empathic, experienced physician. I am certain she is the doctor for me. Thank God!

April 01, 2016

Dr. Norton called me on Thursday, 3/31/2016, to see how I was doing. She asked me to call Monday, 4/4/2016 and let her staff know how I was doing. I have never had a doctor call in follow up to a procedure. Dr. Norton takes good care of me as a patient.

March 31, 2016

I felt the care was competent and very helpful to me.

March 30, 2016

Care and concern was above expectations... Wonderful Dr.

March 23, 2016


March 23, 2016

Add nice as the doctor was I did feel a bit rushed. The appointment just seemed to end before I realized it was over and she was off to the next patient without asking if I had more questions...Which I did.

March 22, 2016

I like Dr. Norton, she listens to what I say and she asked questions to further her understanding of what I have been dealing with. We talked about options for treatment medication, procedure, surgery. We both agreed to by pass the medications and do the procedure. If the procedure is not enough to solve the problem then we will talk again about options. She is very pleasant to work with. She Smiles!

March 19, 2016

Awesome physician, Dr, Norton

January 08, 2016

good experience

January 08, 2016

The entire appointment was nurturing confidence building

December 15, 2015

Dr. Norton is the best I travel from Pleasant Grove to see her which is an hour away I would follow her if she were to move

December 13, 2015

My experience and appointment with Dr. Norton was very thorough and informative into my condition of incontinence and prolapse. She performed procedures and tests that assured me that she knew what was wrong with me and she was knowledgable about what could be done to help relieve my discomfort. My only concern about my visit was that there was a misunderstanding of what I could have done as far as surgical procedures. When the resident came in at the conclusion of my first visit she gave me a paper that said I had two choices of surgery to chose from. Vaginal surgery for uterine prolapse which consisted of a hysterectomy. The other surgery was a TVT. I knew I wanted to have my incontinence fixed and my rectocele but I wasn't ready for a hysterectomy. I scheduled the TVT for surgery. At my pre-op visit Dr. Norton said that I could have had my rectocele fixed but hadn't scheduled it for surgery. I feel that there was some confusion from my first visit about what surgery I could have had done. I really would have liked to have both concerns fixed at the same time, my incontinence and the rectocele, but am pleased that I have had the TVT done now. After further explanation, Dr. Norton said that the rectocele surgery would have been more invasive and for me who has a 16 month old child who is still nursing, it may be a good idea to wait on that surgery until she is older. I agree and will definitely have that surgery done at a later day.

December 11, 2015

Like I said she is one of the best dr.'s I've seen for my problems.

November 26, 2015

Could not of asked for a more positive experience.

November 08, 2015

Dr Norton was a kind and compassionate woman that took the time to understand my situation and gave me a true feeling of caring about my medical needs. I have complete confidence in her and her ability to treat me. I will certainly recommend her to others.

November 04, 2015

Dr Norton and her staff are always kind and professional. This visits always go as smoothly as possible and I appreciate the care I get from Dr Norton and her staff.

October 28, 2015

Care provider was exceptionally good.

October 24, 2015

Dr. Norton was very thorough in her exam and explained clearly what the problem is, which is not what I thought it was when I came in. She gave me a pamphlet of patient information to take with me so I could understand exactly what my problem is.

October 17, 2015

I thought Peggy Norton was wonderful.

October 15, 2015

I greatly appreciate Dr. Norton's care and concern about taking care of my problem.

October 09, 2015

Dr. Norton was excellent in all respects. I did a lot of research before selecting her, and I have been very pleased with my whole experience with her as my doctor.

October 08, 2015

Exceptionally good

October 06, 2015

There is an issue regarding follow-up instructions from my previous appointment and receiving botox. I thought that I had followed the instructions I was given, but Dr. Norton was expecting me to follow instructions which I did not recall having. On paper, I am therefore a noncompliant patient even though I thought I was following the directions and information which were given to me. I like Dr. Norton and her approach to my bladder issues and the treatment thereof; I do not want to change providers but that may not be a matter of my choice. I know that the distance I live away from University of Utah is a factor in all of this.

October 05, 2015

I always get good information from my physician and recommendations.

September 20, 2015

My husband and i were VERY impressed with the concern Dr. Norton showed concerning my problem. She is knowledgeable and confident she can help get to the bottom of my recurring bladder infections and we left feeling positive towards her, her assistants, and staff.

September 19, 2015

I was put at ease and had all my questions answered. I felt like I cam a way with more than one option and a great explanation about the risks and benefits of them all. The doctor is very knowledgeable and familiar with all the latest "trends". I am so glad I went to see her specifically.

September 18, 2015

My care provider (Dr. Norton) is not only very good but very very good. I have the utmost confidence in her care and treatment.

September 14, 2015

Dr. Norton is always thorough in her care and offers options with clear explanation of benefits and side effects. I never feel pushed to make an immediate decision about my care.

September 13, 2015

I am totally pleased with my experience.

September 12, 2015

she was very caring and spent time with me I really liked her

August 27, 2015

Dr. Norton was very thorough in her explanations. She was also very kind in accepting my decision about a surgical option.

August 26, 2015

Dr. Norton is the best!

August 26, 2015


August 26, 2015

Dr. Norton was outstanding. I hadn't followed up as I should have from my first appointment, but she explained everything to me again and made me feel very comfortable. I have now followed her instructions and understand their need. I'm doing better than I have done in years and will be following up with another procedure. I have recommended her to others.

August 15, 2015

Dr. Norton was down to earth and friendly. She could have told me a little about her surgery schedule being on Wednesday only. I hadn't made a decision on whether to have a pissery or surgery and that may be why she did'nt. However it could make a decision on which to have.

August 08, 2015

Dr Peggy Norton is wonderful

July 20, 2015

I had had such high hopes of having my problem resolved by Dr. Norton because she came so highly recommended and I spent several trips to SLC to see her. But, I felt like she basically just gave up on me and dismissed me without any resolution to my problem. I have no improvement in my problem that started two years ago. I was so disappointed because I knew she was the best of the best!

July 20, 2015

Dr. Norton is one of the all-time best communicators I have ever had as a doctor. She quickly assesses the situation and is understanding of the problems. She is gentle but direct in her pronouncements and prescriptions, and she is extremely knowledgeable, which inspires great confidence in what she says.

July 16, 2015

Dr Norton is very easy to work with and takes time with me to be sure I understand everything and is very caring and reassuring about my upcoming surgery for my problem.

July 12, 2015

May 01, 2015

April 11, 2015

April 03, 2015

Dr. Norton was very positive and encouraging about finding a solution to my particular problem. I appreciated her kindness and enthusiasm and thoroughness.

March 26, 2015

Dr Norton took over one hour talking to us about my condition. I don't know how she spent that much time with us and not fall behind.

March 25, 2015

Dr. Norton was so wonderful with me. She offered me advice that was so critical to my condition whether I choose surgery or other measures. Had I opted to have surgery before I found Dr. Norton, the surgery would not have gone well because my tissues could not support stitches. Dr. Norton sent me to a specialist trained to build my tissues, Dr. Paul Summers, and he is doing a great job. I will return to Dr. Norton for further evaluation. I have 100% trust in Dr. Norton!!!!! And Dr. Summers. I feel I am in the best hands possible.

March 21, 2015

Dr. Norton's friendliness put me at ease. Very likeable.

March 16, 2015

Dr. Norton was amazing. I was so nervous to go to this appointment and she put me at ease immediately. super knowledgable and down to earth. the perfect combination for a doctor. I would recommend her to everyone. I have every bit of faith in having her perform my surgery and can't say enough good about her.Another very thoughtful thing about Dr. Norton is that she took the time to include my husband and inform/educate him on my condition as well. I loved that.

March 04, 2015

I have referred individuals to Dr. Norton with confidence.

March 02, 2015

I had a list of questions for the doctor and never had a chance to ask them! The doctor told me she'd prescribe something and the CNA was supposed to have my pharmacy in the computer, but I don't have a prescription for me at the pharmacy. The doctor noticed my redness and warned me about soaps, but I think I should've been checked for a bladder infection, because it has persisted for a long time.

March 01, 2015

Thanks for taking so much-needed time and care

February 16, 2015

I arrived at home in Idaho filled with understanding of my problems and only wondered about the Estrace if I would be allergic to it. So far, so good!

December 08, 2014

Felt Dr. Norton was very concerned about my problem and gave me her conclusions regarding it.

December 04, 2014

Dr. Norton was clear with her description of what was going on with my health. It was a relief to get some type of answer as to what was going on with me.

May 24, 2014

She is very pleasant and informative and leaves the timing of treatment up to me instead of me feeling forced into surgery quickly

May 23, 2014

I loved Dr Norton. very kind, thorough and knowledgeable

March 15, 2014

If it hadn't been for my good fortune in stumbling across Dr. Peggy Norton and the Pelvic Disorders Clinic, I would most likely have opted for an unnecessary surgery. She has provided available options that will possibly curtail any prolapse surgery for quite some time to come. I am soooo happy with "other options!"

March 08, 2014

Peggy Norton is amazing. She spent at least an hour with me going over every single question and helping me with solutions.

February 22, 2014

Appreciate time spent with me and my husband.

February 13, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Peggy Norton to every woman I know who can benefit from the Pelvic Floor Disorders Clinic. I feel ever so fortunate to have stumbled across reference to her practice!

February 07, 2014

This visit was for research on my bladder operation three years ago. I was in and out fast.

February 03, 2014

good experience. would that they were all so courteous and helpful

February 01, 2014

Thank you Dr. Norton, for providing me with the care that I needed at this time. I appreciate the time you have taken with me and to help me and my daughter at our different stages of life. I wish I would have known you were around years ago! I am recommending you to anyone who needs similar care.

January 20, 2014

I feel more than just a number when I go to see Dr. Norton, and even though I was in major pain this time around, her kindness and understanding of my condition, made a huge difference to me.

January 20, 2014

Dr. Norton thoroughly explains medical issues so that I am able to fully understand what she is talking about. She displays genuine concern about any issues or questions I bring to her.

December 15, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Norton to many people since my visit. I have been every impressed by her ability to relate to her patients and her caring manner.

August 26, 2013

I truly appreciate Dr. Norton -- her guidance in my medical needs and concern for me.

August 23, 2013

Of the several times I have been there, this was the best

August 21, 2013

I immediately liked the openness of the doctor. She was very direct and gave me something to think about. Again, I was relieved that something could be done about my condition. Because she was so candid and confident, a lot of my fears were allayed. I had felt that my condition was unusual because it could not be done locally (where I live). Dr. Norton put me at ease that in her practice, she sees this condition all the time. I have confidence coming to the U of U Hospital because I had surgery in the Moran Eye clinic over a year ago. My confidence that the doctors of the hospital treat all kinds of conditions is very comforting to me since I have had two conditions that are a little less common. The trip to Utah has been worth the wait and the effort.

August 21, 2013

I felt like she cared about me, I was not a number to her, I felt like she listened to my concerns and was able to answer questions that I had. Of all the Dr.s that I have seen regarding my situation she is the only one that really looked at the over lying problem and what steps will need to be made to take care of it.

August 14, 2013

I have a lot if confidence in Dr. Peggy Norton

July 23, 2013

Dr. Norton was VERY good. I appreciated the TIME she took to speak to me "face to face" and then did her input into the computer. She was VERY good at explaining different types of mesh procedures and complications that can arise. She assured me that I did not have the type of mesh most commonly causing problems....she performed a very thorough exam and put some of my concerns and worries to rest. She did find the source of my "spotting" and told me a regimen for using the estrogen cream...She was great!

July 19, 2013

Peggy is amazing! She is very thorough and makes sure you understand everything. She shows so much compassion and concern for me. I will (have) recommended her and the Urogynocology department to many friends and family. Wonderful doctor! I am finally feeling normal again.
