I highly recommend Dr. Hornstein. Last year I was in so much pain from a torn rotator cuff I could not even ride my bike around the block. I am now 5 months post surgery and rode over 20 miles last weekend! He also operated on my son. He tore the labrum in both of his shoulders on two separate occasions. He is now back to snowboarding/skateboarding and the sports he loves.

While in the care of Dr. Joshua Hornstein I was completely satisfied with his care level. He completely explained my medical condition and went fully over all the treatment options available for my ailment. He has a great bedside manner as well and explains things on a patient level. There are times where you may have to wait for him in the waiting room, but in my opinion he's a doctor worth waiting for! I would highly recommend Dr. Hornstein to anyone I know.

Dr. Hornstein understood my issues right away; he suggested treatment that would not require major surgery. Had same day surgery and came home with everything I would need to recover. Followup was excellent! 5 months later and I am feeling back to normal (almost). Very straight forward and explains everything.

Great doctor, who has a great bed side manner and remembers details like no one else I know. He remembered exactly what I was in for 3 years ago when I went back this time.

I started with a pain in my shoulder from lifting weights, then it spiraled into an more serious injury as I ignored the pain and continued to lift and rock climb. Next thing I knew, I couldn't use my arm and was referred to Dr. Hornstein to evaluate my shoulder for surgery. I was afraid I had created a situation that would require a LONG recovery. But Dr. Hornstein explained everything in detail and eased my mind greatly. Now, I'm 8 months out and back to lifting and climbing thanks to him!

I highly recommend Dr. Joshua Hornstein. I had an absolutely positive experience from the beginning of treatment with shoulder injections through the surgery and follow-up care. He is thorough, timely and makes you feel at ease with any questions or concerns you may have. I received a flash drive after surgery with video clips and an audio explanation. I loved seeing my shoulder surgery with his realtime audio explanation of the procedure as he repaired my shoulder! The shoulder feels great!

I highly recommend Dr. Hornstein. My experience with him was completely positive. I had Bicep Tenodesis and a couple of other procedures. He explained the procedure thoroughly at the beginning, worked to reassure me as the procedure went on. He was particularly good in follow up- he answered my many questions of "what could I expect", and I felt like he would always take the time I needed. The surgery came out well. His practice inspires confidence too.

Dr. Joshua Hornstein is my HERO. I am an OR nurse for 47 years and have had the privilege working with many good physicians. I chose Dr,. Hornstein because of his professionalism, his expert care and bedside manner. He is totally interested in his patient. I felt 100% comfortable under his care in the OR and post operatively. Being older, I did not know if he would be able to repair my meniscal root tear, but he did a great job and twelve weeks later, I am bike riding and returning to work.

Dr. Hornstein was truly the best doctor I've ever interacted with. He sincerely cares about the comfort and experience of his patient. Dr. Hornstein was cautious in his decisions and always talked me through his thought-process and went the extra mile when there was a last-minute hiccup with my insurance company days prior to surgery. I saw him for a hip labral tear and now, 1 year post-initial injury and 8 months after surgery, I truly feel like I am 90% better.

Dr. Hornstein was recommended to my by my current doctor who was retiring. I saw him for left shoulder pain. Given my age I did not want to attempt 6 months of therapy. Dr Hornstein removed a bone spur and manipulated the frozen shoulder. After four months most of the pain was gone. He was very attentive to my needs and got me back into the swimming pool. Thanks a million doctor.

Excellent Doctor! So glad he perfected this surgery! I experienced no pain immediately that I had originally for a year and a half! Only the soreness from the surgical procedure! Loved how he communicated with original doctor!

I would recommend Dr Hornstein without qualification to any friend or family member. He is very skilled, personable, and informative. His protocol for shoulder surgery rehab impressed my physical therapists, as a result they questioned me extensively to learn more about him. He is also very attentive, and gives his patients considerable personal attention.

A good doctor. He worked on my left shoulder in 5/15 and again on my right shoulder in 1/18. Good as new both times.He explains this to you and listens to what you have to say. Hope I don't need his services again but would sure go back if the need arise again. ??
