Wait time is the only issue we have with this provider

Great doctor. Treats patients as friends and tells you what is going on in understandable terms.

It took 3 hours to get my pump filled. I was the last patient in the waiting room. Although I had a 1:30 appt. Other patients were taken ahead of me. It only takes Dr. Horton 5 to 10 minutes to fill my pump but I had to wait until all other patients were taken care of. I was an hour and 1/2 late for work.

only criticism is wait time to see Dr Horton, but once he gets there, you tend to forget about the wait. Time he spends with you is unhurried and totally focused on you.

Dr. Horton is great. He's been filling the baclofen pump for 15 years & keeping familiar with general health changes.

I have the utmost respect for Dr John Horton and his staff. I've been under his care for 7 years, and cannot imagine seeing another physician. He explains things in a manner that a patient can understand, and is very concerned for my overall health. I always leave his office feeling good about myself. His nursing and office staff are top notch.

Dr. Horton is an excellent, knowledgeable physician. And resident Dr. Treadway was very helpful.
