Dr. Horn managed an injury to my right hand. I am dependent on my hands for my livelihood and am right handed. Obviously stressful. Dr. Horn was caring, knowledgeable and took the time to ensure the best possible outcome. A fantastic doctor!!! Thank you Dr. Horn.

Dr. Horn has taken care of our family for years. He is compassionate, a great surgeon and cares deeply about the surgical outcome and the care his patients receive. We could not be happier with Dr. Horn. He has cared for multiple generations of family members.

When my son broke his wrist Dr Horn was thorough and professional. The surgery went better than expected and he recovered and was able to wrestle in a few short weeks! He is the best!

Dr. Horn is a competent, compassionate, skilled surgeon who manages to create a warm, caring environment for his patients. Some surgeons lack the necessary social skills to interact with patients, but that is not the case with Dr. Horn. If you find yourself needing a knowledgeable surgeon to walk you through a difficult time, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Horn.

Dr.Horn has seen every member of our family for one thing or another and he's been absolutely awesome every time! Caring, professional and looking out for the patient's best interest for the long term...could not ask for a more skilled physician to rely on for our family. I would and have often recommended Dr. Horn.

I had a teenage daughter with a broken hand. After doing a lot if research I learned the Paul was "The man" in are area for hand issues. I called and got right in. Paul's excellent bedside manner put my daughter at ease right away. After a very thorough examination, which showed the broken bone, Paul treated it and sent us on our way. On our second visit, Paul was so good talking to my daughter that I think she forgot her hand was being examined. I definitely would recommend seeing Paul.

Dr. Horn is not only amazing at his craft, but has a wonderful way of speaking to young patients and parents. Everything medical was always explained so even our young daughter understood what was going to take place each step along the way. He went out of his way to call and check on her, as well as answer any questions we had, no matter how big or small, even in off hours. We would highly recommend Dr. Horn.

I have had multiple opportunities to use Dr. Horn's services. The first time was more that 15 years ago. Each episode has been treated with the utmost care and professionalism. He takes the time needed to answer any questions and ensure that I am completely comfortable with the process and course of care. The results of his work have always been amazing. His dedication to his craft and patients is evident in every interaction. I have referred many people and they have been equally pleased.

He truly cares about his patients. His time is your time and never shows that he has other things to do. I'm so happy Dr. Horn was referred to me! My thumb surgeries were 100 percent successful.
