I was recommended to Dr. Horton for my A-Fib. condition in 2012. Since I did not want to take any meds to keep it in check, I elected to get the Ablation procedure. During my doctor follow up visits and monitoring period, I could not of been happier with the excellent & friendly nurses, doctors, PA's and office staff. Everyone was well informed and very good communicators! It's been 6 years since my procedure and I lead a very active lifestyle at 60 years old. I'm very thankful to Dr. Horton and all his staff for their attentive and engaging service!

I would highly recommend Dr. Horton to all my family and friends. I felt most confident in his abilities. All my questions were answered and any fears of the surgery put to rest. Everything was explained to me in great detail. Both Dr. Horton and his staff have an excellent rapport with their patient. Dr. Horton obviously loves his work and takes great pride in all he does.

Both my wife and I have had several occasions of A FIB over the last several years. Medication and shock treatments after a while could not correct the problem, so we contacted Dr Rodney Horton of Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia for my wife after our research revealed excellent reviews. Dr. Horton diagnosed a correction of ablation for the A FIB which took two separate hospitalizations. She is checked regularly for new events with no major issues. After my A FIB continued and I was hospitalized at St. David's, Dr. Horton and staff recommended an ablation. This was performed in April, 2019 with success and I have only one event since then. Dr. Horton and his team of doctors and staff are experts in the field of Electrophysiology and help patients from all over the world. We wold strongly recommend their team without any reservation along with their staff and Nurse Educator Becky Jennings.

I have been seeing Dr. Horton and his staff for about eight years. I had asked for the best and I believe I got it. I have a pacemaker and I go in every six months for a check up. I always see three different staff members and they are always very nice and courteous and they answer all my questions. Dr. Horton is always there but he usually does not come in to see me unless a change need to be made. I like that. It confirms that everything is still OK.

I was referred to Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia by another Electrophysiologist from Memphis as the best clinic to perform the Radio Ablation Procedure. Although I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the trip was worth my time. The lead time to consult with Doctor Horton and schedule the surgery was short. Doctor Horton guidance and medical expertise was superb and accurate. Dr. Horton's staff, Annie, Becky, Wilma, and others were excellent. Thank YOU, Dr. Horton for you expert medical care!

Dr. Horton's nurse practitioner interviewed us and explained everything and answered all our questions. She was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very helpful. Dr. Horton came in after the nurse practitioner was finished and answered some more questions. I left with all my questions answered.

My cardiologist referred me to Dr. Horton to discuss the possibility of having the Watchman procedure done. My cardiologist said Dr. Horton is the best in Texas and possibly the United States. Dr. Horton agreed the Watchman was needed and told me I was the perfect candidate for cardiac ablation for my Atrial Fibrillation. Dr. Horton is a kind, considerate and professional doctor. It is easy to tell he loves what he does. I can't say enough about Becky and the rest of his office staff.

It has been an incredible two year journey. Dr. Horton and his nurse Becky have always been a constant, and in whom I relied on for guidance through so many terrifying episodes of S.V.T. Dr. Horton is a passionate and dedicated clinician, committed to finding and treating complex arrhythmia's and restoring the normal heart rhythm. Today, after multiple ablations without complications, I am arrhythmic free. So grateful to have my health restored, and for the compassionate care I received.
