Patient Comments (4)
in Tyrone, GA |
Dr. Holly is a amazing doctor. He is extremely understanding, patient, kind and a great listener. He listened to all of my concerns about my ailments and then asked a lot of questions. The test he ordered and plan he put me on made the difference in my health and quality of life!

I read both reviews and compared them to my experiences. I could relate to them both. Dr Holly was recommended to me by my internal medicine dr. In short I went to him wanting to know what was wrong with me but at the same time I wanted to be told what I wanted to hear. He diagnosed me; told me what I needed to do. When I tried to persist he didn't engage me. He merely said "you can do it" and walked out. I did it; and when I continue to I'm fine. I guess it's about my and the dr's personality.
Never met a doctor that could care less. Runs late to his appointments and barely spends any time with his patient. If you contact him with any concerns you have as a patient you'll either never get an answer or it takes days to get back to you. He does not seem very knowledgeable, at least not about my situation. If he wasn't my doctor I would have cleared my infection much much sooner without such lasting damage to my digestive system. It is my biggest regret going to him.

Dr. Holly is a great listener and observer, even when he is taking notes--he pays close attention to everything. He takes time (that most doctors do not) to come up w/a thorough game plan, reviews the plan, and educates patients with integrity. I have heard this w/others and experienced it myself. I am very impressed by him and thankful to get to work with him. He has an effortless style, but is clearly passionate about patients and is extraordinary in his field. I highly recommend him.
