Dr. Horst is an outstanding physician. One of her greatest skills is how inclusive she is of the patient in making treatment decisions. She is patient, kind, and flexible. She has worked me into her busy clinical and OR schedule multiple times, even when the problem wasn't life-threatening. She makes me feel like a VIP patient.
