Ratings for Dr. Leonard M. Horowitz
I really like doctor Horowitz overall. He does see a lot of patients, and sometimes appointments seem more rushed than others. I have been a patient for many years, and I've received homeopathic, traditional and combination treatments at his practice. I appreciate that he doesn't just throw antibiotics at everything, but often has good suggestions for supportive/alternate care to try first when dealing with lesser problems, while at the same time being quite willing to use serious medicine for serious problems. He is amazing about 'fitting you in' if there is an emergency of any kind... but for a regular well-adult appointment there is usually a pretty long wait for an open appointment.
We brought our baby to see Dr. Horowitz, interested in his homeopathy practice and an alternative vaccine schedule. We were very disappointed. We found him to be consistently dismissive of our questions, didn't feel respected as parents, and we always felt rushed out the door after 15 minutes. Being a homeopathic doctor, as well as an MD, we expected a little more time for the typical homeopathic intake. He did not do this, nor did he ever offer homeopathic remedies before pharmaceutical ones. While he "would not kick us out of the practice" for differently vaccinating, he would not discuss vaccines with us to help us make decisions. One time when I called after my baby had had a low-grade fever for over a week, he had no advice other than to say "maybe he has something that he should have been vaccinated for by now" but could not suggest what or what to do. Our baby was only a week late for his first vaccine at that time, and it was because of that fever that we delayed.
