Dr. Horwitz discovered an unrelated medical issue and went out of her way to find me follow-up care for that problem. This is the second time that she helped me when there was a glitch. I appreciate her thoroughness and kindness.

I made a 500 mile trip to see Dr Horwitz. she researched where I lived and knew about me even before my visit. She LISTENS. She teaches. She knew my conditions were a high concern to me. she made an initial plan to move forward. I queried an international support group for best provider in this condition on the East Coast. Dr Horwitz was named many times. Now know why. She is just plain exceptional. [...] I now have hope that I will be helped.
