I have been a patient of Dr. Horn's for thirty years and have received outstanding care. I have Menieres and he has been an outstanding health professional. I totally trust his medical knowledge and medical treatment. I would highly recommend him to others for any hearing related issue.

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.

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
