Cynthia D. Horton, MD

“I loved the land and spirit of Kaua`i long before my move here in 2016.  Since living here, marrying into the community, and caring for the medical needs of many, I have learned to love and appreciate the  ALOHA of the people and its rich cultures.  My goal is to assist my patients in finding the best health possible in the life situations where they find themselves.”
