Dr. Horst's being up on the most current information and research and listening and answering questions honestly based on her knowledge helps in making what sometimes may be tough or scary decisions, and following her guidance and others at Vanderbilt has kept me in remission and able to function fully and in good health for many years and avoid a lot of problems that could have been caused from unwise treatments or procedures.

Care provider was prepared for the visit, having reviewed my files and records. Provider was very thoughtful about treatment options. It was very evident that the care provider had significant knowledge and experience and explanations were comprehensive. Care provider provided a plan following the visit that was discussed and agreed to on the call. Very good experience.
