I late for my appointment due to an accident and everyone still made time for me . I drove about 40 miles and waited a very long time for my appointment so I was grateful.

she is very thorough and knowledgeable. my experiences with her and her staff are always positive

February 06, 2018

I arrived on time at 9:00 a.m. and was taken into the exam room right away., where the nurse took my vitals. I then waited until 9:30, when Dr Horowitz's assistant came in. He did a very thorough physical exam. After he left, I waited another 30 minutes until Dr Horowitz and her assistant came back to talk to me about the blood work results. They then told me to wait until they could enter the new information in the computer. 25 minutes later, I had still not been told I could leave. The entire visit lasted 2 1/2 hours, of which perhaps 30 minutes was in actual interaction with a doctor.

good

July 18, 2017

I was apprehensive seeing Dr Horowitz concerning my osteoporosis. The nurse was very kind. I wish I'd gotten her name. Dr Horowitz was very professional, yet she was friendly and compassionate. You don't always see that in physicians who are as in demand as is Dr Horowitz. I have total confidence in her treatment plan.
