De. Horton is excellent! He's well worth the wait time. He's the best doctor I've had.

August 12, 2019

dr. Horton is a very special person. He listens carefully and shows mush patience. He genuinely cares about his patients.

Dr. Horton is great, always listens to you and provides you with answers that make sense, also a great guy in general

I live 3 hours away, my appointment was scheduled for 1330. I was taken back at 1615 and saw Dr Horton at 1645. After that I had to drive back home, another 3 hour trip. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!

This is my 9th year with Dr. John Horton, I can't imagine seeing another provider. He still pushes me to be better.

wait time was long, but he spent a lot of time going through everything I needed

Dr. Horton is wonderful once you get in to see him. The wait at this visit was two hours (and it takes an hour to get to Pittsburgh for the visit) . . . hard to plan anything around a pump refill since we never know how long it will take.

having to wait too long in the waiting room. Not good.

April 12, 2019

Very long wait, but Doc takes as much time with me as he does everybody else. Great Doc, so I'll take the wait.

excellent provider and staff.
