I had a very large thyroid that was growing down into my chest and it had to be removed. I went to see Dr. Holender for the first time in mid-May. He reviewed my chart and viewed my cat-scan and did a very thorough exam. He explained that the thyroid would have to be removed and due to growing into my chest a thoracic surgeon would have to assist. The surgery was a success and Dr. Holender had an excellent bedside manner and was very caring and followed up with me both days of my hospital stay

Dr Holender is highly recommended. He truly cares about his patients, is well versed in what he practices, and is up on the latest approved procedures. He has excellent bedside manor, easy to get an appointment, and you don't have to wait forever. I trust his recommendations completely.

I saw Dr. Holender for a nose problem. The wait was less than 10 minutes. He staff was courteous. He was kind and took time talk to me. He recommended medical management and only surgery after if conservative treatment failed. I like that! Thanks.

TERRIBLE doctor! Nasty, arrogant, rude, pretentious, unprofessional, ignorant and immature! He doesn't look at you when you talk, he has an attitude like he's better than you, he rushes your visit, he has a very mean, pissed off look on his face all the time, he discounts your concerns, he has ZERO compassion! He's a very cold, callous person! And he's NOT a good doctor at all! He couldn't figure out what was wrong with me and didn't even try to figure out what was wrong with me!

Dr. Holender is the man. The man is nice and professional. He does quality work. I need to get my thyroid out soon and unfortunately it seems like Dr. Holender no longer excepts my insurance. I had to change to Aetna starting 1-1-17 and unfortunately Dr. Holander is no longer in network. I strongly recommend Dr. Holender.

Excellent doctor. I went to Dr. Holender with an issue with my ears after having my wisdom teeth out. He was extremely nice, listened and answered all questions we had. I highly recommend him.
