Patient Comments (2)
Odenton, MD |
I have been diabetic for many years, and had to request testing that Dr. Horowitz should have and could have recommended herself. I found her to be incompetent, arrogant and condescending. I had one visit with her in her office and one correspondence through the office portal. Her office staff is rude, as well. That was enough to know I would never return.

She was texting with her daughter throughout my consultation. When she asked me questions, she did not listen to the answers. She was adamant that I said I weighed 60 pounds more than I actually do. Why would I do that? The office refused to fill my prescription because I was due for an appointment, which they never notified me about. The office staff, Shanna and Kate, were rude when I tried to resolve the matter. Difficult to schedule appointments: get voicemail then a call back weeks later.
