Dr. Horan is tops!!

April 2017
Dr. Horan always takes into consideration all that I have to say, and is very thorough in answering my questions. Dr. Horan is very good in explaining why she believes the next steps in diagnostics may be useful - as well the expected outcomes, and if uncertainty is the name of the game, expresses why there is uncertainty.

April 2017
Dr. Horan is an excellent provider! I trust her completely with my care for my terminal Lung Disease. She takes time to answer questions thoroughly.

The dissatisfaction I have with the care provider is that she discounts my own knowledge about my condition.

Dr. Horah is probably the most informative and plain speaking doctor I have had.

The doctor rediagnosed a long-standing problem, and recommended a plan-of-care to deal with a chronic problem that I feel confident with. I was very impressed with Dr. Horan´s thorough analysis and problem-solving skills.

October 2016
As a patient with no appointment and just showing up in the department, I asked if Dr. Horan would work me in so I wouldn´t have to stay over night and come back the next morning. She did and in doing so, i started my antibiotics for pneumonia earlier. I can´t say enough good things about my treatment at VM. I feel very lucky to have her as my Dr.

I trust this care provider implicitly. VM has no one better!

December 2015
Dr. Horan impresses me as a clinician who [a] enjoys the experience of interacting with patients; [b] smiles and laughs at the humor of the human condition; [c] revels in the opportunity to apply her core skills of auscultation, palpation, percussion, inspection, & listening; [d] thinks carefully and thoroughly; and [e] communicates with ease and aplomb.

December 2015
Excellent experience all around.

December 2015
Although, using portal online, I asked dr. to give me layman explanation, didn´t get it.

November 2015
Wish I had thought to ask for a sample of the new med she prescribed since afterwards I found out it would be $200 out of pocket! Realize she might not have had one but that would have been nice... Dr Horan is great!
