Biography

In his practice, Daniel Norfleet, M.D., emphasizes respect for all of 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 worked as a Jesuit volunteer in Alaska working with the HIV population in the state. He values working with people from diverse backgrounds. "It's important for me to create and to maintain a safe, welcoming space for my patients."

Dr. Norfleet was born in South Korea and grew up in Virginia and Alabama with his adopted family; however, he and his partner are glad to call Portland home. In his free time, he enjoys Bikram yoga, Oregon pinot noirs, traveling, and the terrific Portland cuisine.

Dr. Daniel Norfleet has both a keen sense of medical health application as well as a congenial, highly approachable personality. Similarly, based on a few questions that were asked, there was genuine care/concern presented without any form of judgment, ending with further instruction and proactivity. I would recommend this doctor to all friends/family/acquaintances as this combination brought forth a comfortable and friendly experience as a patient in the healthcare environment.

I came into Drs office with 3 specific things to talk to Dr. Norfleet about and he took time to examine the situations and prescribe a solution. I was very impressed with his demeanor and would be happy to talk with him again, if and when my regular physician was unavailable.
