Dr. Brenda Horwitz is probably one of the very Best Doctors I have ever seen in my life. She took my problem seriously and did what she had to, to get me an answer when no other doctor could tell me what was wrong with me! We finally figured out what was wrong with me and I am taking medication for it now. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has a GI issue!

Dr. H is a God-send. She listens to me, tries to help in any way she can, and genuinely shows that she cares. She spends time with patients and tries her best to help, and will recommend you to other physicians if it is not something she can help with. I trust her with my whole heart and recommend her daily to anyone who suffers from GI issues. Temple - you have such a good doctor on your hands!

I was bowled over by amazing Dr. Horwitz's bedside manner. She is so down to earth and was very easy to relate to. She asked questions AND listened before formulating a definite plan for my care that she executed from the exam room!

This is the first time I meat Dr. Horwitz, I was very worried because in the past 2 years and a few months I had a lot of very bad experience with other doctors, to a point I have a hard time to trust doctors any more. She was an amazing doctor and very professional. I felt very comfortable with her, I am happy to see there is doctor who really care about there patient.
