Dr Horkley is phenomenal! My kids have had to see other providers in pediatrics and for other specialties and no one even compares to Dr. Horkley. I know with 100% certainty Dr. Horkley loves what he does and genuinely cares about his patients AND their families! I'm always included on decisions for my child's care and not judged. I'm always given options and so are my kids. I never feel rushed and I love that he talks to my kids at such a young age and cares about what they have to say to him. We love Dr. Horkley!
