Dr. Horton is a great doctor: but the wait times can be long. He spends a lot of time with patients to listen and or explained things withe care. We need many more doctors like him, he cares. Let's clone him lol!!

Love the whole spinal injury clinic team, Dr.Horton, Diane, nancy, Great job for years.

Dr. Horton is amazing. He has a wonderful down to earth nature, sense of humor, and genuine concern for the handicapped individuals who wheel into his clinic for their pump refills. In the 26 years that I have been visiting innumerable health care providers with my handicapped son, I consider Dr. Horton to be one of the best. My son doesn't dread his pump refills. He actually looks forward to them, because he knows he will see Dr. Horton.

For the last 18 years Dr Horton has been treating has been treating me for a C1-C4 central cord injury. Dr Horton's medical treatment has been excellent and he has been very supportive in helping me to be positive as I went through some very serious medical problems. When I recently needed additional spinal surgery he directed me to Dr David Okonkwo who is a superb neurosurgeon. Thank you UPMC
