Dr Horwitch is an exceptionally knowledgeable doctor who is very detailed and observant in the care she provides her patients. I was initially apprehensive about her, as Dr Horwitch's vocabulary on trans/gender issues can be clumsy and archaic. nonetheless, her forthright honesty and genuine concern for trans people and our issues is a tremendous gift for which I am thankful. she is relatively easy to speak with on delicate issues, and endeavours to work cooperatively in overall health and well being.
