Patient Comments (5)

I went to see Dr. Holbrook because I had no sense of smell or taste. I was really pleased with his wonderful demeanor. He put my mind at ease that I would get some or partial smell back. He reassured me it was from the flu I had in 2017 and not anything more serious.

I waited over an hour (after my scheduled appointment) for the doctor to see me. I left after an hour and 15 minutes and re-scheduled. What is the point of an appointment?
