Dr. Norcom is the Medical Director and founder of Bridgeport Laser and Wellness Center. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 1994, receiving his MD degree, then completed residency in a procedure and surgical based family medicine program at Trinity Lutheran Hospital in Kansas City. He was certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and practiced urgent care medicine for several years - performing thousands of medical procedures including skin biopsies and minor surgeries, laceration repair, skin cancer biopsies and excisions. He became an expert in managing emergent medical problems including facial injuries. His attention to closing lacerations and performing skin procedures using plastic surgery techniques stemmed from advanced training with plastic surgeons during residency, and was honed treating tens of thousands of injuries in his urgent care work. He has a working understanding of facial anatomy developed through years of treating facial injuries in the acute care setting.
Dr. Norcom has over 25 years medical career practice knowledge and over 12 years of cosmetic procedure experience. He has treated thousands of patients with Botox, dermal fillers, laser procedures, and non-surgical body contouring. He’s one of a few physicians in Portland who perform nonsurgical rhinoplasty (nonsurgical nose job), and has performed this procedure for over ten years.
He brings this experience and attention to detail to all his cosmetic procedures. This translates into focus and expertise, attention to patient comfort, and intent listening during consultations and procedures. The goal is always treating the person with the utmost respect and obtaining the highest quality for their desired outcome - even if this means referring the patient to a colleague who can serve them better in the aesthetic realm. Most patients can achieve the results they desire without surgery, but many would benefit from plastic surgery. He refers to a small group of the most talented plastic surgeons in the Portland metro area.
He uses advanced regenerative therapies such as PRP for face and hair restoration, always providing patients with a comprehensive approach including antiaging supplement counseling. He continually strives to offer his patients the best choices for rejuvenation treatments.
He is also one of a small percentage of cosmetic injectors in Portland with years of experience using Dermasculpt microcannulas for dermal filler injection, giving patients a much safer, more comfortable experience with injection of fillers.
Attention to detail, compassion, and calm demeanor are all qualities his patients appreciate about him. And his attention to safety, sterile technique and broad medical knowledge.
He has attended numerous meetings and trainings over the years including procedure training from the National Procedures Institute, and advanced training from Allergan (Botox/Juvederm), BTL (Emsculpt, Vanquish ME and Exilis), Merz (Ulthera), Alma Lasers, Skinceuticals and PCA. He continually reads and studies the latest advancements in aesthetic and aging medicine. His extensive background in clinical medicine affords his patients a level of comprehensive evaluation and discussion that is uncommon in the aesthetic realm.
