Dr. Hornback and Ms. Judy have been very good to our son and family. They care about patients and families. They come to see our son and answer any questions we have when they are on call for the surgeons. Thank you both!

I would give 0 stars if allowed. I'm currently on day 2 post op femoral hernia repair. Post surgery neither myself or my family saw Dr. Hornback. Nothing about the procedure was explained. I'm left in sever pain and no answers. Post op appt is 5 weeks away. Find another surgeon.

I would never recommend anyone to this surgeon . My mother had surgery several years ago on her the thyroid and result of the surgery her right vocal cord was paralyzed. She was unable to really talk for months until she had to have another surgery by a different doctor my mother's life hasn't been the same since and no compensation was given to her no even an apology. If I could I wouldn't leave him not one star.
