I have been going to Dr. Horvit for over eight years now for insulin resistance. I was put on Glucophage, given discounts to see a nutritionist, and over time was able to reduce the amount of meds I was taking. About a year ago, I was able to regulate my sugar levels with diet alone-no more meds! I now only see her once a year to monitor my progress.
I have never experienced her being rude when my numbers were not great on a lab, she mainly would give suggestions on how to improve those numbers. I also have not experienced any nurses that were rude either. On the contrary, when I have forgotten to get my labs done, they try their very best to get me in when there is a cancellation.
I don't see the point to see the doctor when you haven't had your labs done since that is the data she looks at. It is my responsibility to keep up with the times I need to do labs, if I forget, it was my responsibility, not the doctors.
The only reason I did not give Dr. Horvit 5 stars is because of the long wait if you do miss an appointment due to not having labs done. Sometimes you can't get another appointment four months. I considered leaving at one time for this purpose, but my OBGYN said that she's the best in town and if I'm already a patient, I shouldn't leave. Considering the fact that I'm not having to take Glucophage anymore, I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
Cons: the wait for an appointment
