I don't normally write reviews but I feel so happy to have found Dr. Hornback I felt compelled to write one. Dr. Hornback has been a 5 star doctor during my recent treatments. She gave me the most thorough consultation I have ever had. After many doctors missed the root of my issues by not asking questions. My treatments have been relaxing and I feel she is really helping me heal from my very complicated injuries. She is very caring, sincere, and extremely intelligent. I have been unintentionally late to appointments due to my illness and she was very kind, understanding and accommodating. She would never intentionally hurt or cause pain. She is very gentle and a true healer. Go on a consult and see for yourself. She was recommended by many people of our community and I can see why she is so highly reviewed.
I suffered from tendonitis in my elbow until the pain became incapacitating. An acquaintance suggested acupuncture. I looked in the yellow pages and found Cynthia Hornback listed as an acupuncturist. I chose her because she was closest to my home. When I arrived for what I thought would be an acupuncture treatment, I was given the "chiropractic check-up", and told that the tendonitis was caused by the lack of correct curvature of my neck. Hornback began "treating" me 3x per week (I had no insurance). My neck started to hurt, and then my shoulder. I was told to expect things to get worse before they got better. Soon, along with all the additional pain, I was feeling "fragile". I felt good when I began "treatment". My elbow was not getting better (it eventually did with a brace and rest) and she told me I needed to see a neurosurgeon! I didn't, as I had no insurance. I was still in pain (neck and shoulder) caused by Hornback's treatments, and her office manager begged me to come back in and they would fix it. It only got worse. I finally told her I was stopping treatment. She insisted on giving me one more adjustment for my neck and shoulder pain. She slammed down twice on the right side of my pelvis, and I have been in chronic pain ever since! It hurts to sit, stand, walk, lie down - it "cracks" when I move- and I get leg cramps. She told me she would fix it. See the pattern? Create problems, and charge more money to fix them! In 8 years, no one has been able to "fix" the problem Hornback caused. I have spent so much money trying to relieve the pain. An MRI revealed that every disc in the right side of my neck is bulging after she kept "cracking" my neck to "cure" the tendonitis in my right elbow. X-rays show that the right side of my pelvis is pushed forward in relation to the left side. It is hurting as I sit here. I have not had a good night's sleep in 8 years, thanks to Cynthia Hornback. She'll convince you that you have a problem, and keep creating more problems, so she can keep taking your money. No conscience, compassion, or empathy. Her office manager told me Cynthia would call me after I complained about the injuries. She never called. 24/7 I am wishing I had never found her as an "acupuncturist" in the yellow pages. I wish I would have retained an attorney so at least I could get the money back that I paid for her to injure me and use it to seek further pain management treatment for the injuries she caused. I fear I will have to have surgery. All for tendonitis in the elbow.
