Dr. Holder-Murray was really kind. She explained all of the details of my condition very well, such that I had no questions when she was finished. She spent time explaining her exam and explained what she was doing each step of the way. I appreciated that she took the time to talk to me for awhile and explain the possible consequences of any treatment we discussed. Additionally, she was helpful in ensuring there was continuity to my care.

She is an excellent professional. She knows how to talk with you and how to explain all the details.

Dr. Holder-Murray's manner is a little brisk, but not rude -- she did treat me kindly and like I could be assumed to understand what was going on, which was quite nice. She was straightforward and to the point, not mincing words as though I wouldn't understand.

I can't give enough praise to Dr. Holder-Murray. She always makes me feel comfortable and takes time to explain what she's doing. I honestly feel like she truly personally cares how I am doing and if these surgeries are working or not. I have been dealing with health issues like this for 23 years, and I've never had a doctor I connect to like I do with her. I walk out of her office confident in the plan of care and assured it's the best course of action. I also really appreciate Jillian, her nurse. She ALWAYS gets back to me ASAP and answers all my questions. They make a great team.
