I was so pleased with the experience and couldn't have had a better doctor to operate on my eyes. He was so concerned for my feelings because I admit I was scared to have someone operate on my eyes. He made sure I knew exactly what the procedure was going to be and his staff at the hospital were great people.

Dr. Holtebeck is a superior doctor. He is very professional and highly skilled. He took time to answer all questions and explain procedures so I was well prepared for cataract surgery. He and his staff are very competent and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Holtebeck to anyone seeking an amazing Ophthalmologist.

Dr. Holtebeck is an amazing doctor. He is professional, caring, thorough and highly skilled. The results of my cataract surgery was better than I had expected and I was fully prepared for each step along the way. And it was painless! His staff was very friendly and caring. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Holtebeck performed cataract removal and lens implant surgery on both of my eyes, using laser surgery. The results are phenomenal, and I can't say enough about how professional, competent, and friendly he and his staff were. He is very experienced in these procedures and I would highly recommend him. The entire procedure is very straightforward and very comfortable.

came recommended by others, but was very skeptical. was surprised to find him a very caring and understanding person. my father had eye surgery done that did not turn out well at all. I need surgery as well, but he reassured me that today's medicine is not my fathers medicine. was very reluctance to have the surgery done, nut he told me straight up what my choices were. I could not be more happy the way things turned out. i have a new life and vision like i was 20 again. highly recommend

Dr. Holtebeck was outstanding. Very happy with his procedures and staff. Would recommend him to anyone. I wish I would have done my cataract surgery sooner.
in Brookfield, WI |
Dr. Holtebeck was very cordial. In our first meeting and exam I was diagnosed with cataracts. The only thing that I would say is that he seemed to think I was not aware of what he was telling me. I am 74 but I don't have dimentia. In fact I consider myself quite smart and keep up with current affairs, trends, etc. after our first meeting things were fine. The surgeries were on 7/13 and 7/20. Both went well and the post op visits went fine. I would recommend Dr. Holtebeck to family.
