Not a great experience. MD said whatever was on his mind, bedside manner not so great, sort of rude, delivery wasn’t great... not so friendly... fast talking. I wouldn’t recommend. Sorry. Probably will see someone else.
Not a good doctor to go see. Doesn't have very much of a good bedside manner. Basically very rude. Says what's on his mind even when he should. Seems like a quack! Plus he doesn't do surgeries anymore so there is no need to go to him. I'm not going back to him!
Thank you for this review. We're very sorry about your experience, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.
I had a recent experience with Dr Van Horn and it wasn't a pleasant one. This doctor's staff was not inviting and neither was he. I had been having an issue that I saw numerous doctor's about to rule out possible issues hoping for a diagnosis and he was one of the last. Keep in mind I had to wait an entire week before seeing him then he basically wrote me off as if my issue was physiological and did not examine me thoroughly at all. I left that appointment in tears and feeling hopeless.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

Dr. Van Horn was a very caring and concerned doctor! He explained and physically showed me my problems so that I would clearly understand exactly what's going on with me so I can properly address my needs! I was comfortable and happy with his work! Yes I would recommend him to friends and family!
