Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

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.

Dr. Holt is an amazing and very personable doctor. She always took my symptoms seriously and was very considerate in all my visits. Her office have even gone above and beyond and checked in with me when I had to visit urgent care in the past even though I didn't visit with her at her office.

I have been a patient of Doctor Holts for over 10 years. She has always been available to address all of my medical needs in a timely and professional manner. I have total confidence in her ability to diagnose and properly treat any medical issues I might be having. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a primary care physician! She is the best.

Worst diagnostician ever! Treated my mother for Sciatica for over a year when she actually needed a hip replacement. Do not recommend her for seniors! Office staff friendly but dumb. Had me filling out the wrong forms necessitating four trips to their office in one day. Good doctor if you like friendly but incompetent
