It is rare to find a Doctor who listens to the patient, Dr. Holmes listened and explained what he saw. He was very respectful and compassionate. I will be becoming a patient of Dr. Holmes.

Dr Holmes staff was very kind and professional without being cold. There was a bit of a wait but I don’t care at all. To find a doctor who care so much and treats you as though you are the only person in the world is a miracle. Dr Holmes was nothing g short of a miracle for me. He not only addressed my ankle and gave me every conceivable option but he also spoke to my other Heath concerns with intelligence and empathy. I left his office with invaluable information and the feeling that the world isn’t such an awful place after all.

He listened carefully to what I had to say. He asked clarifying questions. Instead of making a snap-decision, he said he wanted to review what we discussed and then would get back to me. I appreciated the thoroughness of the course of action.

Dr Holmes was very attentive. For the first time in my 38 year history of pains, he suggested the possibility of exploring the root cause of my problem. It is this intellectual curiosity and rigor that distinguishes Healers from business men.

He is kind and willing to listen to your concern. I thought as a well known doctor he will never pay attention to my concern, but i was wrong. Dr. Holmes has empathy to help me. Im glad I came to visit his office.

Great doctor! Listened well, very concerned about my wellbeing and even assisted with insurance matters since the front desk did not understand my health coverage. He took the time to hear my issues and gave me answers to move forward in the next steps of the recovery process.

Dr Holmes and his staff are wonderful. Dr was very informative when making my diagnosis and recommending treatment. Surgery couldn’t have been any easier and he called me three times to check on me after surgery. Dr Holmes and his staff are #1!

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.
