I feel completely confident with Dr. Horwitch. She seems to actually care about my wellbeing.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2020
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.
