Patient Comments (4)

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!

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...more

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!
