He is the best around. He performed surgery for my kids and recently myself. I refuse to go to any other ent. He is on point!

Dr Holmes and staff are absolutely AMAZING! He performed surgery in my Sons neck and from the beginning to the end he and his nurses and staff were so wonderful and comforting! There isn't another ENT Dr. I would see. He is confident, kind, and did an amazing job with my Son. Thank you for the comfort level and for all you do for our family!! I would recommend you to everyone! They will be lucky to have you as their physician.

He took the time to explain conditions well. He had a condescending and dismissive attitude when asked about other alternatives to his proposed options. Can't hurt to at least ask right?

I have known Dr. Holmes since 2004. He has performed surgery on both my children as well as myself. Dr. Holmes is a very compassionate doctor that cares about his patients and his staff. There has only bee grown in this staff and hardly any turnover. When I first met Dr. Holmes he was very sensitive to my personal situation & the need/importance for my son to have surgery as to not lose his hearing. Watching him over the last 12 years, he is an amazing doctor as well as a true person.
