Dr. Padma K Horvit has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- 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.

I had problems with fatigue for years and no doctor knew what to do. I did not fit the profile for a endocrine disorder so no doctor thought to run the proper endocrine tests on me. She was the only endocrinologist willing to see me without a referring physician. She was the only one who ran the tests and the only one who found the problem. She is very willing to give you the right testing, which is rare among endocrinologists. Her bedside manner is poor to be honest. I left crying when I got my diagnosis and to be honest I never cry.
Don't Waste Your Money

I read reviews about Dr. Horvit , but decided that the poor reviews were probably angry patients. After seeing her a few times, I cannot understand why she has any good reviews. She does not listen and has a temper. Her plan on helping me was extremely conservative, and I feel like she wasted my time and my money
