the care provider just jumped to an assumption and she didn´t resolve my problem. I´m still suffering from the same issue and not quite sure why I pay for this service

I have recommended Dr. Horwitch to my co-worker.

Good first visit.
March 2018
This is my first primary care provider through Virginia Mason that I am absolutely ecstatic to have helping me with my care. I do feel that I have a pretty strong grasp on my health but she was very informative/informed and handled my exam with care, respect and humility. Couldn´t ask for a better visit.
February 2018
She was great. Straight forward, clear, and gave me information I didn´t have before

Seeing this doctor over 5 years. Very happy!
October 2017
Dr. Carrie H is very inspirational because of her professionalism, diplomatic, knowledgeable, friendly & I´m very confidence that she really takes care of her patients esp. "MYSELF". I count my blessing to have her as my "provider" for so long & I don´t know what to do if she´s not my doctor. I love Dr. C H & all her medical staff too y´all.
October 2017
Dr. Horwitch is an excellent provider. She is extremely concerned, caring & explains things completely. She had a resident with her (Dr. Steven Sloane) who handled things very well on the front end. He is fortunate to have such an outstanding teacher.
September 2017
Welcome all my concerns and share my concerns as well. She has always been caring about my health issue also very knowledgeable.
September 2017
excellent care giver!
August 2017
Dr. Horwitch was professional, kind, and effective in her approach to evaluating symptoms and possible causes. I felt Dr. Horwitch was focused on identifying the cause of the health issue not merely providing treatment for the symptoms. It takes more effort to analyze and determine the cause. Dr. Horwitch´s interviewing process and exam technique was thorough. She is an excellent clinician. I feel fortunate to have been referred to this Internal Medicine doctor.
August 2017
Dr. Horowitch is one of the best physicians that I have ever had and I am now 80 years old. That should say it all.
July 2017
I have recommend several in the past to see Dr. Horwitch.
July 2017
Dr. Carrie Horwitch is the best physician I have ever had. I have kept her as my primary care physician even as I have moved out of state multiple times, returning to Seattle specifically to see her, as I did on this visit. She is knowledgeable and caring and has been a huge support through over 10 years of primary care, HIV care, and chemical dependency. I can´t thank her enough.
July 2017
I´m very satisfied of all of the services, care & concerns. Dr. C. H. is an awesome physician. I´m blessed enough. Thank you -
July 2017
Dr. Horwitch sent me an email at my VM account w/results, she also followed up w/a phone call.
June 2017
I live in Everett and I drive all the way to Seattle and Pay for parking just to see Dr. Horwitch. She is never rushed, she lets me have input and an opinion about my treatment plan and I trust her. I drive all the way to Seattle because I trust Dr. Horwitch. I have never been rushed in my appointments nor do I feel Dr. Horwitch is preoccupied or herself rushed. Before I got home, I had an email from her going over my test results. I Trust Dr. Horwitch as a Doctor and I really like her as a person. She has a great sense of humor and she is easy to talk to... very approachable. I also like that she pushes me when she feels something is important that I have dismissed. I hate medications, tests and unnecessary appointments, and I know she knows that. So when she pushes me to do any of the above, I know it is important and not just part of a protocol. In the past at Virginia Mason I felt providers pushed unnecessary appointments and tests. (not with Dr. Horwitch) It felt impersonal, like I was at a convenient store and the cashier was trying to push candy bars and gum at me... trying to get that last sale... Like VM was trying to make sure I scheduled yet ANOTHER follow up appointment... regardless of why, like it was just what you did for "business". I never feel this way with Dr. Horwitch. I am very satisfied with her as my provider. Thank you Dr. Horwitch for the many many years of great care!
June 2017
