Dr. Horn is a an exceptional doctor and amazing person. I have already recommended her to several friends and acquaintances I became aware were also diagnosed with cancer. She saved my life and I can never her repay her for that . I just hope she knows how grateful I and my entire family are.

Dr. Horn is the best doctor I have experienced in my 78 years. She is caring, shows much compassion, yet always honest, direct and very professional. She not only has excellent knowledge in the field of oncology,but also a depth of knowledge in all areas of medicine. She instills hope and promise in her patients, sometimes in the darkest moments. I feel truly blessed and very fortunate that our lives have crossed. She has extended my life for which I am most grateful. I consider her not only my physician, but my friend. I commend and praise her in the highest manner possible.

Patient | September 7, 2017

I really appreciate my care provider. the wait time is the primary negative. it is quite a wait every time. but she spends a lot of time with me so I can only assume she is late because she does the same with all of her patients. it would be nice to have a system to let you know how late she is running.
