Dr. Matthew P. Holtzman is an excellent doctor. His attitude is consistently outstanding, and his ability to communicate is equally strong.

I felt very comfortable for my first visit with dr holtzman

March 30, 2016

It was a one hour wait in the waiting room but the care that I received was excellent. The doctor and his staff took their time with me as I am sure that they do with all of their patients. It is better to wait than to have the doctors rush you in and out.
