From the experience that I have had with Dr. Holt he is obviously a skilled surgeon and is very concerned about the outcome and experience his patients have after surgery. I found his team to be very knowledgeable and caring. They have a good system and it works. I have absolutely no regrets in my decision to have Doctor Holt replace my knee.
