Testimonials

Karen M

He is a great doctor and a wonderful man. He truly cares. I saw Dr. Horches for 10 years before I needed my knee replaced. He was so gentile with the shots I received in my knee and they worked.

Donna S

What an awesome doctor. I was a patient for a couple years and just recently moved to NC. I had severe migraines which were debilitating. After seeing Dr. Horchos they reduced to once a month from 25 a month. Praying I find another doctor that compares!

Local Physician

I want to thank you guys for all your help with my patients. Everyone who comes back raves about Dr. Connor. They really all do love him

Wendy G

Dr Horchos is AMAZING!! Our son had his 3rd concussion from football ( second in less than a year). I’ve never seen a doctor spend so much time with their patient. We had to have been with him nearly an hour asking questions about his symptoms. Therapy was an immense success.
