There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Horwitz always took the time to listen to my questions and concerns. He answered my questions and was always up front with me in dealing with my condition from the time of my injury to this my final appointment.

*Dr. Horwitz goes out of his way for his patients and I couldn't be happier with a doctor. He saved me from driving there 2X in a week by getting ahold of my spine doctor and doing x-rays the same day.
