Dr. Horgan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Horgan "I spent many years developing my skills in neurosurgery and it is my passion. I live in a rural environment primarily because of the people I enjoy surrounding myself with as well as a love for the outdoors. I have access and ability to transfer and care for patients at a large academic city hospital in Rochester, NY. In this way, I can perform the majority of operations at a medium sized, well equipped hospital in a small town while bringing more complicated surgery and care to a larger tertiary medical center. I truly have the best of both worlds and invite you as a patient to share my expertise and experience. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Horgan "I pride myself in a caring and hands on approach with explanations that don't require a medical degree.  "
