What People Say About Dr. Steven Horowitz, DO

As a patient of Dr. Steven Horowitz for many years, I always found him to be a very caring doctor who took the time to listen to my concerns and address them. After seeking medical services from other doctors who seemed to want to give me a "quick fix" of medication without finding the underlying problems, I appreciated how thorough Dr. Horowitz was with each visit. He always showed genuine concern for his patients and never rushed through the appointment! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

0 stars. He wrecked my back with chiropractic so badly that after 6 weeks of agony the Kaiser surgeon had to perform a laminectomy within 30 mins of seeing the CT-myelogram because the nerves were crushed to the extent I might never have walked again. I spent weeks in rehab learning to walk, still need help getting in and out of bed. Chiropractors should perfom x-rays before manipulation. He could have looked Kaiser x-rays and he would have known I already had spinal stenosis. Quack!

Saw my son in urgent care and told him to man up when he shared parents concerns about his condition. Refused antibiotics when requested and a few days later my son was in the ER very ill short of breath and now getting those antibiotics via IV that Dr. Horowitz refused to give. The worst part is, because he did not listen to his patient, my son now has to repeat the quarter at college because he is too ill to return!!
