He is an amazing doctor, and has an amazing staff. Do not listen to the negative reviews. This doctor, his LPN, and his staff care about their patients. They have a proven track record healing those who suffer from tick borne illnesses. The Hudson Valley is lucky to have him. I am forever grateful for their help in restoring my health.

Worth seeing if you have very severe Lyme Disease and are dying and no one will treat you. But he can't cure late stage Lyme. No allopathic doc can. Costs a fortune but if you have the money go for it.

Do not waste your time, or money going to Dr. Horowitz. Everything he says about caring about his patients and making them feel understood in his is book is a lie. After becoming his patient, I could never get a hold of anyone at the office with emergency questions, the answering system is always full and they try to charge you for everything under the sun. He tells you one thing and the staff tells you something different. I ended up in the emergency room and in a wheel chair after seeing him.
My experience here was terrible. John Fallon, PA I saw, literally yelled at me about a lab I went to that couldn't understand his confusing directions for blood rx. He took out his "bad day" (as he put it) on me, which is unacceptable. Receptionists lacked compassion and tact. I was charged a fee for repeat emails: after I'd try calling but was rudely told they were busy and I needed to email instead, or after I'd have to email more than once b/c they wouldn't answer my initial questions!

I waited 2 years to get into this practice. When I became a patient, I was not seen by Dr Horowitz. The person in charge of my care was new to treating chronic illness. I knew more about the interactions of the prescriptions I was taking than the provider did. Additionally, when I had a SERIOUS issue with the medication protocol there was a lack of responsiveness. Maybe Dr.H. would have handled things better, but I was told he limits his new patients acceptance to "high profile" patients.

Dr. Horowitz was the first doctor to help my daughter after years of struggling to get other doctors to diagnose her and begin treatment. He changed her life for the better. He saved her life, literally. She was beyond hope for a better future when we found him. He and his nurse practitioner, John Fallon, are the most knowledgeable, scientific and caring professionals we have met on this frightening journey called Lyme disease. I thank God we found them.

Dr. Horowitz is a passionate and caring health care professional. He truly cares for his patients and is deeply committed to their return to health. His staff, reflects his dedication and caring and are most friendly and supportive. We always leave the doctor's office, after an appointment, renewed, enthused and ready to continue our fight against Lyme Disease!
