Excellent service, the best possibly, really. I was seen very quickly for a recurrence of atrial fibrillation. Dr. Holtz scheduled the appropriate surgical intervention for the next day. The outcome was excellent. I met all the critical players in anesthesia and cardiology. From Chief of Staff, nurses, ordered and receptionists, they were all competent and proficient. I could not be more pleased.

Thank you to all

My appointment with Dr. Holtz went very well. I have no doubt that he is a fine doctor...and a great person as well! He relates very well to patients such as myself who have no medical training and a genuine fear of heart problems. Therefore, I know, I should follow the known rules for better heart health. Hopefully I will do better in the future. Thank you for your kindness.

I found Dr. Holtz was caring, knowledgeable and listened to my concerns. He also ordered a test. Which his assistant got me into right away, and I got a call from his office the next day with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Holtz.
