Biography

In his practice, Daniel Norfleet, M.D., emphasizes respect for all his patients. "I try to do this by creating ongoing conversations about what's important for the patient in terms of medical care and decisions," he says. "I want to ensure my patients have a comprehensive understanding of their health care plan."

As a physician, Dr. Norfleet most enjoys the social interaction and continuity of care with patients. "It keeps me invested and interested in caring for others," he says. "Learning about my patients' backgrounds and the relationship between their medical concerns and values or preferences make each visit different and challenging."

After earning his medical degree from University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Dr. Norfleet completed his residency at Providence Portland Medical Center. He is board certified in internal medicine. 

Before entering medicine, Dr. Norfleet was a Jesuit volunteer working with the HIV population in Alaska. He values working with people from diverse backgrounds. "It's important for me to create and maintain a safe, welcoming space for my patients," he says.

Dr. Norfleet was born in South Korea and grew up in Virginia and Alabama with his adoptive family. He and his partner are happy to call Portland home. In his free time, he enjoys Bikram yoga, traveling, tennis, and cooking.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I had an x-ray and had the results through MyChart that afternoon! The referral that was done went through quickly. I am very pleased with the efficiency, thoughtfulness and working with Dr. Norfleet has met my needs. This year I have had some issues and he has been on top of resolving them and coming up with solutions. One of my Rx's that I had to fill at Walgreen's needed pre-approval. The Pharmacist there said it may take a week to get done. I had the Rx that afternoon or the next morning.

I did not feel that my provider listened to my concerns and instead made appts for other, less urgent needs. i ended up in Emergency room several days later because my needs were not met during the initial appointment.

I'm very pleased that when I come in with an issue, it's dealt with, as opposed to 'wait and see' like I've had in the past. I wouldn't go see a doctor if I didn't have a problem.

Dr. Norfleet appears to very knowlegible and has a very good bedside manner. However on my last visit, I was prescribed a controlled substance and he forgot to sign the prescription, so I had to return to the office for a signature. Luckily he was between appointments and my pharmacy was a short walk away--it could've been a real problem for me otherwise!
