Dr. Holztman was excellent at listening with respect and answering all of my questions and concerns thoughtfully and with patience. I had done my background and will highly recommend him to anyone that I know who is diagnose with skin cancer and needs surgery.

He was kind and spoke to me instead of at me ,as so many have done before. He treated me with the utmost respect. I wish more doctors were like him. Not once in the three visits I had with him was I made to feel less then human.
