Dr Holtzman is excellent! He has reconstructed my Achilles' tendon on both feet and has done a few minor procedures as well. I would be afraid to go to anyone else. He's professional, pleasant and listens. The practice is busy but I don't mind waiting for him. It's well worth it.

Very interventionist and pro-life, which is not my own philosophy, but compensates for less attentive drs. Responsible, thoughtful, and compassionate in his way. He did a small courtesy for my dad at the end of his life which I will never forget. His NP Rachel is a gem.
