  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The best Dx anyone could ever hope for!

I come from NYC and have been to some of the best Dx's in the country for a particular issue that I am facing. I can honestly say. That Dr. Horton is as good if not better than some of the experts in the northeast. He is an expert in his field who has a terrific bedside manor. I have a terrible insurance company and he figured out a way to have a critical test done that I needed by thinking out of the box. He calls me back sometime within ten minutes which is unheard of for a Dx. He is nothing short of amazing!
