About Dr. Richard Horowitz


Dr. Horowitz is known as an incomparable diagnostician. His training in internal medicine and nephrology (kidneys) has made him uncommonly sophisticated in diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care for his patients. He offers personalized service and follows his own patients during any hospital stays. He does not use hospitalists, nurse practitioners or other “physician extenders” like many other practices. This continuity of care is ever important in the efficient, cost effective and successful treatment of acute and decompensated chronic conditions. His office is conveniently located in the heart of Beverly Hills.

PHILOSOPHY


In today’s medical environment it is extremely rare to find the level of comprehensive service I provide. It is concierge level medicine without costly retainers and at a reasonable fee for service price. Patients never feel rushed. I spend as much time as necessary with each patient and listen carefully to their physical, emotional and social needs in order to best create an effective individualized treatment and proactive health management strategy.

I am committed to practicing the highest quality cutting edge medicine. I develop a personalized preventive care/health improvement management plan for patients based on their personal needs and genetic profile. I also incorporate a multi-disciplinary approach to risk avoidance and clinical treatment that includes Western medicine and, at a patient’s request, alternative approaches such as: Eastern medicine, naturopathy, homeopathy, molecular medicine, biofeedback and cognitive behavioral therapy. As such, I have a broad array of multidisciplinary consultants to draw from in order to provide the most comprehensive expert care possible. Patients with emergencies are almost always seen the same day.
