Dr. Horton was the first physician to really listen and narrow done the cause of the issues I was having. She explained things clearly and took time to explain any questions I had. This was by far the best experience I have had with a physician in a long time. I highly recommend her as a neurologist

I've been seeing Dr. Horton for a few months now for migraines after seeing a different neurologist who had diagnosed me with having a mini-stroke. Dr. Horton listened closely to my experience and thoroughly reviewed my records. She formulated a treatment plan for me to address my persistent migraines - which has proved to be exactly what I needed. My migraines are now well under control thanks to Dr. Horton. She has always treated me with respect and kindness, always professional with the right bedside manner. I would recommend Dr. Horton to anyone who is in need of competent and compassionate care.

I didn't even realize I suffered with migraines, but she was very knowledgeable about them, explained my options and I could tell she really wanted to help. She took her time with me, and didn't just pass me off like another physician might. Her patient care is unlike any doctor I've seen, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

On my initial visit she did not listen to a thing I said and then completely made up her report. It contained things that we did not say to her. It ended up causing a huge issue with my insurance. Then, when I needed her the most her office kept saying she was not available and they would do med increases over the phone. She treated me like I was lying about my issue even though I've been diagnosed with epilepsy for years. Her successor took exactly ONE visit to get more done for me.

She is great to work with and tremendously knowledgeable. Always willing to go above and beyond for her patients. She knows the latest treatment guidelines and explains things well. She dresses nice, and always presents as professional. She is more than qualified and would always recommend her to friends and family alike.

Too quick to diagnose and pass you off to a different provider, even though symptoms are neurologic. Should not be licensed.

Never on time for the appointment. Too cute to work with the patient. Only knowledge of dispensing pills, applying a lot of test to the patient's insurance, poor patient rapport, no resolve, and her staff was terrible also. Was in Clarksville, Tn. Please do not waste your time and money.

Dr. Horton spends time talking with the patient and caregiver. She goes above and beyond, ordering ample blood tests in order to be thorough, contacting other physicians on behalf of her patient, and makes the patient feel as if someone else cares and will do their best to diagnose/treat the problem. I highly services with her.

I have never met such a caring, determined, and trustworthy doctor. She will take all the time necessary to listen to your concerns and determine the best course of action. She makes you feel comfortable and treats you like family rather than a patient. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a neurologist.
