Dr. Horn is a great doctor, was suffering from heel pain for over a year, to the point that there were days i didn't want to get out of bed. Went to see Dr. Horn and we started with shockwave and orthotics and after 6 shockwave treatments I'm feeling 95% percent better, and plan to continue with the current treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Horn!

Dr. Horn is fantastic! He has been treating me for several months and I can honestly say he is the best podiatrist I have ever met! His punctuality and bedside manner both display his respect for his patients.

Dr. Horn is beyond questioning the best inexplicable foot Doctor. He literally saved my left pinky toe. I had been in excruciating tear dropping pain for about 3 1/2 weeks unable to wear a closed invshoe. I visited Dr.Merrick Horn's office, he identified my issue and immediately honed in on his skills. My toe is healed, I am back in my cute shoes and more than grateful to him. His staff is professional, warm, caring, and sensitive at heart. I have enjoyed being a patient under his care.

Great Doctor, made an appointment for the same week. Administrative staff was helpful and extremely friendly. (This is hard to find now a days) Dr. Horn was extremely professional and I was very happy with my results. He treated my issue in a very inexpensive manner. (I previously went to another podiatrist for the same issue and was charge 4 times the amount and it did not fix the problem) Dr. Horn was friendly, had a great attitude, and treated me very well. I will refer him to everyone. His appointments were on time and quick. His method of treatment for me was the best one. You won't go wrong visiting Dr. Horn for any of your podiatrist needs. I found him on google based on his reviews, and was not disappointed.

I had foot pain for a year before I decided to do something about it. I truly wish I would've seen Dr. Horn sooner! I read great reviews about Dr. Horn, made an appointment and he told me I had Plantar fasciitis. He was kind and direct. I did 7 weeks of shockwave therapy, got the shoe inserts, bought the shoe he recommended and now I am 90% cured. Thank you, Dr. Horn!!

I'll preface this review by saying how much I dislike paying a visit to any health professional. And so, I approached this office the same way I have other offices when my wife started visiting them. Today I can say without a doubt that there's no other like Dr Horn and his staff; they simply are the best healthcare professionals I've ever encountered. I wish others would emulate what this practice does in the way they care for their patients. This is what patient care should look like; one shouldn't dread a visit to the physician. This office is the epitome of true patient care.

Dr. Horn and his staff have been life savers! I’ve been bounced around at different podiatrists over the past few years for recurring ankle & toe issues due to my athletic lifestyle, and after my first appointment with him I already started getting results...his expertise in properly diagnosing me, the minimally invasive procedure he performed, and now after a bit of physical therapy and I feel like I have a brand new foot! Thank you Dr. Horn, I’m so thankful for everything!

Dr. Horn is great, very informative and patient with me (I'm a bit of a pain) From the time I walk in, the ladies at the front, to the assistant in the back they're all kind and made me feel comfortable. Glad my toes are better and I'll definitely come back in the future if I should get toe injuries.
