Ratings for Dr. Norman L. Banks
I agree with one of the previous reviewers; he's a very nice person... just not a great doctor. He is slow getting back to you, doesn't do any research regarding treatment (ie: you may end up doing it all yourself) and basically just orders tests and refers you elsewhere if his simple and often unhelpful answers don't do the trick.
Wh9le he has not been at Palo Alto for a long time his credentials are good and in the many times I have seen him I have been pleased by his overall understanding of my complex issues and willingness to work outside the clinic with other experts.
I saw Dr. Banks for back and knee pains. I've seen a few docs over the years for these things and he was the below average. He's a nice guy but I just don't think he is very knowledgeable or experienced. You can get the same info from wikipedia or some sports medicine web sites. I wouldn't see him again nor recommend him.
