Practice Focused on Injured Workers

Dr. Norman’s practice draws from numerous disciplines, including surgery, engineering, general medicine, and wound care. Although he focuses on injured workers, he believes his eclectic background benefits his patients in numerous ways. 

“I have always been interested in learning about other people, their experiences, and perspectives, and I’m fascinated by how much of a person’s recovery is influenced by the combination of those factors. I view healthcare as a collaboration between providers and patients focusing on their unique circumstances to maximize recovery,” Dr. Norman said.

Giving Back

Dr. Norman gives back to others through a  wide range of volunteer activities including medical and non-medical work. He has traveled on outreach missions to Kenya and Mexico and strives to address healthcare inequities within his own community.

Favorite Pastimes

Along with spending time with his wife and sons, he enjoys home improvement projects, woodworking, reading, and exploring the Pacific Northwest. He considers himself a science and technology geek interested in learning about new technologies and putting them to use.
