Jerk of a Doctor with an even worse staff. Don't bother to make an appointment unless you have at least 3 hours to wait around before you even have your initial hearing test.

Albuquerque, NM |
Dr. Horn diagnosed me with a cholesteatoma telling me I would die without having a surgery - I won't go into his gruff impatient manner or his refusal to explain further - I will only say that I never had a cholesteatoma according to 3 other doctors so I'd never recommend him - EVER

DR Horn is an excellent Doctor , grumpy , but an excellent Doctor if you can get through the front office staff . The front office clerks are horrible. The woman at the front desk is rude and not very helpful, especially if you call to ask a question. They act like they are doing you a favor when you ask for help . I could not get over how rude I was treated over the phone.The medical folks in the back are great. Fire the clerks in the front and you will have great place to go for ENT services.

Total wait 1 hour and 45 minutes. When I approached the reception desk, the lady there axplained that she has placed my file away and they forgot abour me. I insisted on talkimng to Dr. Horn. He came into a waiting and prended that nothing was wrong. I mentioned my wait time, my re-filed chart. He acted rude and angry that I dared to critzized his staff. He offerred no apology or explation. A high disapointment from a care giver staff and a poor professional provider.

Suffered a head injury and loss of consciousness. Now experiencing vertigo. The woman at the front desk staff was very rude and told me the next appointment she could schedule me for was two months away. Go anywhere else instead.

Extremely satisfied with Dr. Horn and his staff. I was treated for sudden hearing loss and I have recovered most of my audition. They scheduled my first appointment very quickly which is important to the outcome on this cases. Dr. Horn and his associates spend the time to explain what was going on and what to expect from my condition. I highly recommend him based on my experience
Horrible. Still waiting for a returned call... Thank goodness my ailment got better on its own. I strongly suggest finding another physician. Sorely disappointed.

Dr. Horn is the last in a long line of ENT's. I got so discouraged at my undiagnosed cholesteatoma! I suffered for over 10 years. By the time I went to the mayo clinic in Phoenix I was desperate. They told me the best doctor for cholesteatoma awas Dr. Karl Horn is Albuquerque! He has been the first ENT that makes me feel like I can relax knowing I'm in excellent hands! I have had a complete mastoidectomy. My ear is all prosthetic or remade from cartilage. He is an excellent surgeon!!
