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 said. "I want to ensure my patients have a successful mutual 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 the 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.
Dr. Norfleet was born in South Korea and grew up in Virginia and Alabama with his adopted family. In his free time, he enjoys Bikram yoga, bike commuting, Oregon pinot noirs and checking out the Oregon sights.
