I believe he is knowledgeable in his field. Unfortunately, my needs do not fit FDA nor insurance coverage.

I have had treatments from Dr. Horner in the past with very satisfying results and I view his treatments are a great alternative to any type of surgery or other treatments. His procedures are effective and precise, contributing greatly to getting relief.

I’m a very active 67 year old, run and cycle almost daily, and never had any issues with my back until this summer. I was shocked to learn from Dr Porter that my pain is being caused by scoliosis and when I saw the X-ray I expected him to take a lot more time to help me process this really disturbing news but he did not. However, I got a diagnosis so I’m giving him 3 stars as that’s why I went in the first place. It would have been nice to not have felt like I was just another person to check off his afternoon appointment list!

My visit with Dr. Horner was most helpful in resolving the sever neurological pain I was experiencing. Our first steroid injection was of limited benefit, but in describing my symptoms and thoughts during the follow-up visit Dr. Horner and his staff listened to the what I had had to say and we proceeded with a treatment plan to the second injection with great success. I am so grateful to be pain free. As has been my experience at Panorama Orthopedics, their healthcare model is a partnership that involves the patient throughout treatment. I recommend Dr. Horner as the perfect example of the best of what modern medicine provides.

I was impressed the first visit when Dr Horner steered me away from himself. He found the pain relief I needed was in my neck, not my lower back. For about 5 years simple medication worked.

the only doctor who has given my orthovisc injections nearly pain free. Dr. Horner uses ultrasound for accuracy which is crucial in my case for knee injections. Over the years, several other physicians injected w/out ultrasound & excruciating pain & swelling happened. I've had great success w/ Dr.Horner & he answers all my questions & concerns.

I have been living with chronic lower back pain for years and thought it was just me getting old, wear and tear and physical labor, i was at the point where I couldn't work, play any sports, or any household chores. I tried PT for 3 weeks with little improvement and was then referred to Dr Agarwala at Panorama for an MRI by my family doctor, after the MRI I was referred to Dr Michael Horner (Panorama) for Bi-lateral L4/L5 injections, i had the injections on Fri the 19th and here it is Monday the 22nd and im up and around and im 95% pain free. I can't explain how much better Im feeling and im able to sleep 6 or 7 hours the last few nites. Im amazed and extremely happy that im able to get outa the house for short walks with the dogs and going to the grocery and more. The Doctors and Staff at Panorama are just phenomenal, Dr Agarwala and Dr Horner ..... THANK YOU Tim H
