What People Say About Dr. George Holmes, MD

Dr. Holmes thoughtfully and compassionately listened to my concerns. He then outlined a plan of care that included both conservative and surgical options that will be based on exam and imaging. He even provided artwork (impressive sketches of potential surgical intervention)!! Dr. Holmes answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. I am very pleased that I chose Dr. Holmes to take care of/manage my ankle issues.

I was looking for an expert as I have an issue with my feet for over half a year. I learned of Rush Orthopedic and learned about the foot and ankle group and Dr Holmes. The entire process from my initial interaction with Oak Park office that referred me to the registration and finally the appointment was first class professionalism. Dr Holmes has an incredible personable style that you usually don’t find with docs of his background and tenure in the field. It was like talking to a friend.

I choose Midwest Orthpedics because my niece was a medical research student with them. I choose Dr. Holmes because of his reputation as a surgeon. Dr. Holmes had a subtle way of making me feel calm and confident in my recovery. His compassion, professionalism, humble sense of humor, and positive attitude helped to kept me strong throughout my recovery. Quote from a Peanuts character, “ Attitude is contagious....is yours worth catching?” Thank you Dr. Holmes for your upbeat attitude.

He is a very skilled surgeon. I had surgery at the end of December and it is healing beautifully. I also like that he has a good sense of humor and is easy to talk to. I live three hours from Rush and it was worth the drive to see him. His PA Brittany is wonderful too.

Although I can not speak from personal experience regarding Dr Holmes skills as a surgeon, I can speak as a patient who has seen him for many years. He is straight foreword, honest and delivers his message with compassion and a sense of humor. He listens and I trust his judgment regarding my on going challenges. His staff are also professional and very helpful.

The best surgeon in Chicago hands down! Always extremely compassionate, knowledgeable, and his best quality in my opinion, he tells you like it is. When I asked for his opinion, he never hesitated to give it to me. I would ALWAYS recommend him to anyone I know. I received the VERY BEST care from him and his whole team!!!
