Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Didn’t like what I had to go through but I knew it was necessary. Dr. Horowitz was very patient and successful with the procedure that we had to do even though I didn’t like doing it

I've been a patient of the Doctor for a number of years, as has my wife. We are both quite satisfied with his surgical skills and his "bedside" manner. I find him quite affable and easy to talk with. No $100.00 words.

I don’t feel listened to very well by Dr. Horowitz. I feel like I’m talked over in a patronizing fashion. I stayed with him a year because I know some personalities just don’t jive at first but, things never improved. I’d rather not list specifics at this point. And I’d like to make clear that I’m not judging him negatively as a person or meaning to cast doubt on his skills. But, do feel inclined to mention that if you’re a person who identifies as female, this is likely not the provider for you. As women, we can’t be patronized or made to feel less than by our medical providers and institutions anymore. I’ll end on a positive note by saying his surgical skill and knowledge seems to be very good. I did see other physicians deferring to him for additional opinions on who they were treating.
