I'm extremely grateful for Dr. Holtman's professionalism and knowledge, presented in a friendly manner showing concern for my health and post-surgery progress. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in need of similar expertise.

wonderful staff. Dr holtzman is the best

April 26, 2017

Dr. Holtzman and Lisa Fuller were fantastic. Dr. Holtzman spent a considerable amount of time showing us the CT scan results, explaining the identified issues. He was patient, caring, informative and kind. He gave us great confidence in having him perform surgery. This was so important to us.

The physicians were very friendly and informative. They took great care in explaining the situation in detail in a way that was understandable to anyone that is not a clinician. A very satisfying and pleasant office visit experience.

I arrived 30 minutes before my appointment. when the appointment time arrived I startedwatching the clock about two hours I waited to see the doctor. that is uncalled for. I know he is a great doctor but two hours late ...really. I was unhappy about that. the rest of my visit was good.

March 29, 2017

I had an 11 oclock appointment, I saw Dr. Holtzman at 20 after 12. Other than that he was very good.

March 08, 2017
