I very recently saw Dr. Holt for the 1st time. He took time first to find out a little about me which I appreciated since not all busy doctors do that. He went over my history and options and took time to explain my x-rays. He was very personable and I never felt he was in a rush. I have scheduled my surgery and feel very confident I will have good results with Dr Holt as my surgeon.

Dr Holt is a wonderful Doctor, he takes time to explain what to expect and answers any questions you might have. I have recommended Dr Holt to several people and have no qualms recommending to anyone. My sister is having knee problems and after seeing the care I got and how fast my recovery time was, she is going to see Dr Holt.

I had a total knee replacement six weeks ago and have been extremely pleased with the results. Six weeks out and I'm pain free and have excellent range of motion. I found Dr. Holt to be a caring and highly competent surgeon. His entire staff - especially Ray- are very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Holt to anyone contemplating joint replacement surgery.

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.

I can't imagine a better experience and outcome than my recent bi-lateral knee replacement surgery. My recovery has been swift and free of complications. Dr. Holt and his team gave me kind and careful treatment and fulfilled all of my needs and addressed all of my concerns with the highest level of professionalism.
