Our family recently relocated out of the state, and we are so sad that we can no longer take our son to see Dr. Horwitz! Every doctor we saw at Pediatric Associates of NYC was great- but he was definitely our favorite. He was always professional as well as being completely comforting and compassionate to both of us sometimes overly anxious new parents. Couldn't recommend him higher.
