My husband and I were very pleased with Dr. Holtzman. He was very caring and genuinely concerned for my condition. He explained everything, in detail, for what is going to happen to me.

My appointment and treatment with Dr. Holtzman and his staff was the best medical experience I've had in a number of years.

October 21, 2015

Dr. Mathew Holtzman has been my oncologist, surgeon for the past four years. Dr. Holtzman has operated and removed tumors from my liver in two surgeries. I'm a GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor) cancer survivor. Dr. Holtzman is an excellent surgeon and I am happy he is on my team I would want no other surgeon. I can talk freely with Dr. Holtzman and he has my best interest at heart. As a matter of fact, I will be having liver surgery with Dr. Holtzman in November to remove tumors in the liver. Dr. Holtzman is one of the finest doctors I have met in my life.

October 14, 2015

Dr. Holtzman and his support staff have guided me through a very careful process of testing and have given me clear guidance throughout that process. He has saved me from potentially unnecessary surgery while demonstrating a sincere interest in my health.
