Receptionist cordial. Office clean. Nursing staff show interest. Dr. Holder is cordial, professional and very good at explaining problems and treatments. Treats you as an individual rather than just another number.

Review for Dr. Holder

My dad is Dr. Washburn's patient, he has completely gotten rid of his calouses. My dad love Dr. Washburne. I appreciate Dr Washburn for taking the time out of his busy day just to visit with my dad to just talk about fishing, hunting, and life. Great Doctor.
