All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Office doesn't answer the phone
I had an emergency referral request and after calling and leaving messages for two weeks I finally had to walk in a make the request in person. They told me how busy they are and that they don't answer their phone, I was the ONLY person in the office. Since then I have tried calling and leaving messages for a follow-up appointment (as requested when the referral was granted) and they still don't answer the phone. Calling for five months and they never once answered the phone and have never returned my call isn't a good sign. I've still never managed to get an appointment to see the doctor. He may be the best doctor ever, but I would never know.

I've been going to Dr. Holden for years now and he really is a genuinely nice guy. He loves to have regular conversation with you and it's refreshing to have someone that actually takes the time to see how things are going versus just trying to take your money and get you out of there. The staff are also great! They are very helpful when answering questions and very nice. Overall, I would highly recommend coming here.

I went in as a new patient. I needed to talked to Dr. Holden as I hadntvhad insurance in 10 years. I was finally happy to be able to address my health concerns. Dr Holden chose to talk more about his views on politics and society vs address my concerns. I have changed doctors. If politics and conspiracies make u uncomfortable do not go here.

Best family PCP I've ever had contact with. He actually cares abides by the Hippocratic Oath and is an excellent communicator. He is versed in several languages and hyper intelligent and very humble too. I am a lifelong fan of him as a person and as a care provider. \
