I was immediately gratified with Dr. Horan's warmth and ability to connect. She showed an immediate understanding of my condition, and a respect for my own knowledge about my disease process. She is obviously intelligent, and I trusted her right away. I wanted a pulmonologist who could be a partner in my care, and I felt the good possibility of that from her.

Dr. Horan is an excellent doctor. She is knowledgeable, skilled, courteous and intuitive. With her easy manner, she evaluated my condition, made some med changes, and will send a letter for the next appointment. If something goes haywire in the meantime, I can always get a hold of her.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Super, likeable, jovial and serious as required. Great hire and scientist.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Horan's level of care is always excellent. She listens to the concerns, asks probing questions to fine tune her diagnosis. She takes time with the physical exam to determine the degree I have deviated from my base line. Then prescribes the course of treatment to heal me or, if necessary, facilitates & expedites my being seen by another physician for a second opinion or if I should be seen by a different specialist for something other than pulmonary issues.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Horan is not only competent but also caring, as a professional and an individual. I'm glad to be in her care for my health issues.

Dr. Horan has given me excellent care for many years. My only problem is I drive from Issaquah to the VMMC. It is getting more difficult to drive that far but I will do it as long as I can.
