I am going to a specialist. I was glad she was honest enough to know she couldn´t answer all the questions, but instead recommended a specialist.
I have recommended Dr. Horwitch to my co-worker.
Good first visit.
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.
She was great. Straight forward, clear, and gave me information I didn´t have before
doctor was condescending, insulting and treated me like i was a child.
Dr. Horwitch is an exceptional physician.
Consistently good care through the multiple years w/my care provider.
Dr. Horwitch has been my primary care provider since 2000 (approx.). I have complete confidence in her.
I´ve been seeing my primary care physician for at least 4 years and really like her.
I have a lot of respect for Dr. Horwitch. I utilize and wholly believe in Western & _____ & naturopath remedies. Carrie typically is open to this which is important and integral to our relationship.
Seeing this doctor over 5 years. Very happy!
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.
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.
Welcome all my concerns and share my concerns as well. She has always been caring about my health issue also very knowledgeable.
excellent care giver!
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.
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.
I have recommend several in the past to see Dr. Horwitch.
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.
I´m very satisfied of all of the services, care & concerns. Dr. C. H. is an awesome physician. I´m blessed enough. Thank you -
Dr. Horwitch sent me an email at my VM account w/results, she also followed up w/a phone call.
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!
Dr. Horwitch has been my primary care doctor for over 5 years. She is caring and professional and always explains my care very well. I trust her judgement and trust her with my care.
I have been w/care provider for many years. I value their care and concern for me. I feel fortunate to have Dr. Horwitch for my health needs.
Dr. Horwitch has always been great to work with. I never feel rushed and always get questions answered. I feel she has genuine concern and has my best interest in mind.
I have referred friends and colleagues to Dr. Horwitch, and will continue to do so.
Carrie she gently reprimanded me for the length of time since my last visit then did NOTHING about 3 issues I presented, then made another appointment so someone else could actually do something.
Dr. Horwitch is a wonderful doctor. she is professional, friendly and explain things well. she was quick to diagnose my mole for possible skin cancer, provide biopsy, and stay in touch with the result right away.
Dr. Horwitch is a very compassionate and understanding doctor - a delightful lady and an excellent Doctor.
Dr Horwitch is very good about understanding my attitude towards care and medication, and shows respect for my wishes, while helping me with a program that both works for me and helps me.
Excellent doctor ? What a find!!! I am so happy to be under her care.
Dr. Horwitch´s concerned and caring during my appointment.
Dr. Horwitch shows genuine concern, explains the differences in the types of medications, explains the condition and how the body is reacting. She recommends additional if she thinks it´s needed or will refer on for a consultation so that I get all the facts especially if it involves surgery.
Dr. Horwitch is an amazing Doctor. She always takes her time and asks all the questions she needs until she gets to the bottom of the issue.

Dr. Horwitch was in close communication with Primary Dr. Moy. After visit, Dr. Moy called the home and further discussed plan. Excellent!
My first visit to this doctor. She is wonderful, very caring, loved my experience!!
Dr. Horwitch is the best!
it is always evident to me that Dr. H is concerned for my health and well-being. she is very professional and also interested in my life and how that impacts my health.
Dr Horwitch is the best and is understanding and I appreciate her entertaining some of my sillier questions. She´s never disappointed me.
she seemed to be in a bit of a hurry though she was trying hard not too try it
I couldn´t wish for a better provider. Dr. Horwitch saw me the next day after I called. As well, she set up the Ultrasound after my visit, sinceI live @ 2 hours away. She was compassionate, friendly and professional. She always shows extreme concern for me.
Dr. Horwitch is excellent and is the primary reason I use Verginia Mason.
Same providers for years and years!
I think our personalities just aren´t a good fit, but I see her being a wonderful provider to many others.
I have had some excellent doctors in my 60 years, but Dr. Carrie Horwitch is the BEST. She is a concerned, talented, flexible and overall EXCELLENT doctor. Thank you for providing me with the level of care she provides.
The best Dr. that I have ever had.
She is awesome. She makes me feel comfortable and I have confidence in her knowledge. I have recommended her to friends.
difficult diagnosis required other doctors to have a look. all were very considerate and helpful.
Dr. Horwitch is probably the best GP I have had. The staff are also excellent.
Dr. Horwitch is everything I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. She has been my primary care physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue. She treats the whole person, from your emotional to physical well being. She takes the time to be caring while maintaining a very efficient office. She is responsive and informative; always following up on lab results. I wish all doctors were like her.
I have already recommended to my friends and family. Dr. H. has been my physician for years I trust her!
I´m fortunate Dr. Horwitch is my doctor and am grateful for the excellent care she has given me over the years. She makes time to see me even if I call asking for same day appointment. I have confidence that she will do well by me!
Dr. Horwitch is kind and yet firm in her approach. She cares enough to get serious and is very invested in my health. I al really lucky to have her as a provider.
I love my doctor . she´s professional and easy to talk to.
Dr. Horwitch was not as thorough with the physical exam as she has been in the past - perhaps due to pressure of time constraints.
Glad to get longer appts. when needed.
Doctors Horwitch and Srivatsal are the best doctors i have had.
I honestly can´t think of anything I would improve. Very good overall experience.
I am so relieved to be under the care of Dr. Horwitch & at Virginia Mason. I feel truly cared for & listened to & that I MATTER.
I have recommended my husband and mother to see Dr Horwitch as their provider.
Patient focused in decision making.
This was my first visit with her as my doctor retired. She is an excellent replacement.
