Dr. Horn saved my life in 2013. I met him socially and discussed my symptoms with him and he said I want to see you at 8:30 tomorrow morning. When I went in, he did an EKG, and told me I'd already had a heart attack. He sent me right away to mercy, and within two days I had a four-way bypass. He has been taking care of me ever since. He is ver patient, kind, concerned and helpful. He takes all the time you need.

Dr. Horn, Is a Cardiologist who really cares about his patients. He will take the time to listen and is more concerned with about the medical care he gives than how many patients he sees in a day. This is very rare with the amount of patients who need care in his busy medical practice. Thank you Dr. Horn and God bless you and your family. You really stand out from the rest and it shows. Thanks you again...Franklin Senia

I have been a patient of Dr Horn for 6 years, initially following a heart attack. He took me through the process of the bypass, and provided excellent follow up care. Several years later, an infection damaged my heart valve, and Dr Horn helped me through evaluating my options, making the decision, and selecting a surgeon. His follow up care has been excellent. He has a calm, encouraging manner, and is very thorough in his exam and explanations. I highly recommend Dr. Horn.

Dr. Horn saved my life! I was sent to him by my primary, who is also awesome and he detected that I had a serious issue — blocked artery! I didn’t even know it. He is kind, gentle and extremely intelligent. I can’t say enough good things about him. He took the time to talk with me and that’s rare these days. His staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel comfortable and welcome, not like you’re an intrusion on their day. I feel blessed to be his patient.

I suffered from a “widow maker” level heart attack. Dr. Steven Horn and the amazing people at Northtowns Cardiology gave me my life back!! The cardiac trained nurses return my phone calls in less than an hour, answer my easy questions, and get back to me on the the tougher questions after discussion with Dr. Horn. Northtowns Cardiology is very responsive in refilling my prescriptions, coordinating with my pharmacy and reviewing my meds for the best results. The staff is very pleasant & friendly

I went to Dr. Horn for a full checkup to put to rest my concerns of heart related illness and was very impressed with his very thorough evaluation and perfect bed side manner. He is very calm and professional, and I felt genuine care and the visit was unhurried. He is my favorite doctor that I visit.

My 89 year old father has been seeing Dr. Horn for the past several years. We have never had a doctor so professional, kind and caring. He is very respectful and compassionate. Dr. Horn gives you the time to voice your concerns, you never feel rushed. As an RN, I would highly recommend anyone with cardiac issues to see Dr. Horn. He is an intelligent, wonderful cardiologist. I have never met a doctor so caring and concerned for his patients. We have total faith in him.
