She seemed to have her mind made up about what my treatment is going to be and there's next to nothing I can say or do that will change that. The first visit, she seemed annoyed that I didn't see things her way and annoyed that I was disappointed I wouldn't be getting my treatment that day.

  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
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.

Carrie Horwitch is the best doctor I've had in Seattle. She's friendly, caring, considerate, and no matter how small my concern takes it seriously and is never dismissive. She involves me in decisions and makes proactive referrals. I feel cared for and heard. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor.
