I went to see Dr. Horne after fracturing my left foot 8 weeks ago. Dr.Horne and his terrific, warm, and friendly office staff always greeted me with a cheerful smile and always treated me in a professional manner. I was taken on time ( even though one time I was late for my appointment) ! Dr Horne is knowledgeable, supportive, and a great listener. After 8 weeks I can now begin to strengthen my foot with the exercises Dr. Horne shared with me!

Dr. Horn was the only doctor who knew exactly what was wrong with my foot. I had seen several doctors prior to my first visit with doctor Horn, and he knew exactly how to solve my heel pain, and after only a few treatments I was able to return to running 15-20 miles per week and have not had any problems since. I recommend him highly to anyone suffering from heel pain.
