Dr. Holtzman made it very easy to understand the surgical procedure that he was going to perform. He listened to and answered any questions that I had.

Dr. Holtzman went above and beyond my expectations. My surgeon was not able to get me in until April. Dr. Holtzman not only saw me quick, but was able to get a surgery scheduled that same day so I did not have to wait or return to Pittsburgh. I could not have been more impressed with the care I received. What a great experience!

Dr Holtzman was great! He demonstrated caring for my concerns, answered my questions, offered information to lessen likelihood of recurrence. And the surgery was successful!
