I was operated upon by Dr Horbach. I could not be more pleased with the results of the surgery. She is particularly skilled at explaining and diagraming the surgery planed. The Fairfax Innova Hospital Gyn Floor was exceptional. The nurses were well trained and attentive. We have sent several of our friends to Dr. Horbach and they were without exception pleased and thankful for our referral. My continuing care by Dr. Horbach and her physician's assistant Cindy Atkins has been great.

I met Dr Horbach last May. She reviewed all of the issues that I was dealing with and was very thorough in explaining all of the non-surgical options. Ultimately I decided to have surgery to repair several problems which was 7 weeks ago. I am very pleased with the results and wouldn't highly recommend her to friends and family.

Dr. Horbach has a poor bedside manner. She did not make eye contact during appointments and came across as impatient. I was rescheduled two of the three times I saw her and during my last visit, I wasn't seen until hour after my appointment time. She was unwilling to pursue different options to figure out my pain issues and said there was one doctor in the area who might help and she could not remember his name. She said she would have someone call with the name and never did.

What a wonderful Doctor. Extremely knowledgable and does an excellent job of explaining conditions and options. Very skillful surgeon. My wife is dry after 10 years of leaking with exercise. Top of her field. Highly recommend.

I love Dr. Horbach. I have had many uro/gyn issues. Dr. Horbach listens, tests, and thoroughly explains her recommendation as well as other options.
