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 adopted family. He and his partner are happy to call Portland home. In his free time, he enjoys Bikram yoga, Oregon pinot noirs, traveling and the terrific Portland food scene.

He is pleasant, but never seems to remember much about my health. It has taken nearly 2 year for him to somewhat grasp what are in my records and my health condition. He doesn't listen well, and couldn't remember why is was there.

Dr. Norfleet shows that he is committed to my health concerns and not just giving a prescription. I have never had a Doctor like Dr. Norfleet that I consider a friend. My visits are professional but I know we find results. A super guy!!!

I like that he is soft spoken and actually cares about you as a patient. I also like that he took time out for me when I didn't have an appointment to check out some symptoms I was having and explained and looked me over in a short amount of time and I was very happy when I left.

Dr. Norfleet seems very knowledgeable, and is an excellent listener. He is not my primary care physician, but I have seen him for urgent concerns on at least a couple occasions. I have felt comfortable with his treatment plans each visit, and would recommend him to family or friends.

Since I have been a patient of Dr. Norfleet, I have had all good experiences. Using MyChart has enabled me to make appts., renew Rx, and follow up on tests easy to do from home. Referrals are transmitted promptly. My personal preference is to find a good physician and when I do, I stay with them. I have had two previous providers who retired out. Dr. Norfleet seems young enough that I plan to stay with him for a while.

I appreciate his honesty and the fact that he listens. My doctors in the past just blew me off and decided what the problem was without really exploring things. After 10 years to get an accurate diagnosis was amazing. Even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear.

I tend to get the sense the goal is to shuffle patients through as quickly as possible. I often feel like my concerns aren't fully considered or are just given a "I think that's unlikely. Here, just take some ibuprofin" pat response. There is essentially zero proactive healthcare taking place, just reactive. [...]
