everyone was very friendly and helpful. All staff was willing to answer all questions or concerns.

I waiting over 15 minutes because of a complicated patient before me. I thought the physician was more interested in reading my file than paying attention to me and what I had to say about some minor things. I'm 72 and I felt I was slightly treated as a mere older person. I could feel the babyness in the questions I was asked. I was not told how to prepare for my visits. I was not called the first time after my visit (last year) to discuss what they saw in my xrays and blood tests. This time when I brought it up I was told to have things done before my visit next time. Even though my thyroid results were high (in January), I was not told about it. My PCP saw it in the records in August and change the medication. There was a disconnect here.

Dr Horwitz excellent physician.

September 20, 2016

I waited four months for this appointment, and it was well worth it. Dr. Horwitz and her fellow Dr. Heller were what I had hoped - knowledgeable and with the expertise needed for my condition. I was pleased with the time taken to collect my medical records from other doctors, and the time taken to review and analyze them in order to gain a full picture of my situation. I appreciated all the time I received from them at the appointment and how thoroughly it was conducted. They didn't seemed rush and listened carefully to what my husband and I had to say. My only wish would have been to have more specific nutrition therapy information and/or a referral to a nutritionist who specializes in osteoporosis.

Dr. Horwitz is an excellent doctor and so very knowledgeable about my condition. I am very pleased with the progress I have made, following her prescribed course of treatment. I am also very thankful for the Consent Decree which has allowed me to continue being treated by Dr. Horwitz, despite the fact that I am a Highmark insurance patient.
