Ratings for Dr. Greg A. Horton
I have been to multiple orthopedic surgeons due to my teens athletic injuries . Dr. Horton has by far the worst bed side manner I have ever encountered in my life. I would never return to him, even if he is well known in the field. Arrogant and no regard for the patient.
I'm so thankful I was referred to Dr. Horton. He changed my life, making it possible for me to walk without pain after replacing my ankle. You have to wait but he's a very busy doc. He is businesslike but is happy to answer questions. I have other foot issues and want him for all my care. Unfortunately KU Med Ctr. is difficult for us to get to - we're not in the K.C. area. I highly recommend him and thank God he is my doctor.
The doctor is good. Katie the nurse rudest person I ever met in my life and I manged and worked customer service all my life. The KU surgery staff from the front desk, billing department and medical assistant and the nurse who is having baby girl in the beganning of Auguest is AMAAZING!
I am an RN. I devoloped post traumatic arthritis after a nasty ankle, etc... fractures. He takes on cases other ortho docs don't have the skill level to handle. Yes, expect to wait to get an appointment (6 months), then wait to see him (so far every office appointment has been way late). I am 7 weeks post ankle arthrdesis (fusion, because replacement wasn't an option due to bone condition) so still in the total non weight bearing stage, but I used to have ankle pain all the time, even when sitting with leg elevat d. No pain in the ankle at this time. I know to expect discomfort/pain when I can start weight bearing, but he told me he expected the pain to be much improved from my pre-op status. I am hoping for the best, but as a nurse I realize that pain free is not often achieved after severe breaks requiring many surgeries. I trusted my first ortho doc (he has done several surgeries and I have had great results and he highly recommended Dr. Horton as did other ortho docs and many PTs.
Brilliant surgeon !! Yes you have to wait to see him, but get over it people you wait for the best. I had a triple arthodesis and tendon lengthening performed in December 2016. I am healing very well. It seems Dr. Horton does everything he can to save limbs and also to correct other surgeons mistakes. I am very thankful for his skill and dedication .
