Dr. Matthew Horn has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

Showing 2 of 2
The office is clean and clutter free and the staff are helpful and friendly. My wait times have always been very short--5 minutes is average. Dr. Horn heard my concerns, recommended follow-up tests, and developed a treatment plan based on those tests. He was also sensitive to the cost of medications, recommending that we could try samples until I found a medication that I was comfortable using. He is very direct and to-the-point, which I count as a positive. I found him to be very professional and accurate in his diagnoses. He also comes into my appointments prepared and doesn't waste my time getting up-to-speed or reviewing my records--he's already done that before I arrive.
