I booked a New Patient appt almost 3 months ahead. I was told the office called 1 Business Day before my appt saying they cancelled it and scheduled me for a random day next month(without checking with me). I didn't get the voicemail and showed up for my Monday appt, only to be told that it was cancelled and there was no doctor available to see me, even though I was already at the office. The waiting room was completely empty as well. Horrible 1st impression for new patients; never going back!

Do not recommend he is awful, dose not listen, put inaccurate info in my file that has nothing to do with me or my visit. I was sitting there in extreme pain and he put I was much better in my file, yelled at me an said it was all in my head. Did not take anything I explain serious nor my health. Then he just gets up and walks out of the room.

I have been using Dr Hormes for many years and have recommended him to many of my friends through the years. He's so very knowledgeable, great listener, explaining everything in depth to me, and so kind. I could never ask for a better neurologist.

After my first visit, I came away with a fair level of confidence in Dr Hormes, however I did not percieve that he listened with an understanding ear.
