Dr. Holinder treated my family member at Green Oaks Hospital. He and his allied health professionals helped in alleviating a very deep depression, which motivated my family member in being the “best they can be,” years after his assistance. -Dr. Inez Brabeck

Worst Psy. I have ever been to. Skip this place to receive good care. It's nothing but a revolving door and you are just a number and some money.

I had a very simple not a big deal issue at all and I observed everyone there carefully and it looked like they all hated their jobs, they were all so angry. I was treated like total crap so I never went back, once was more than enough. Ugh....

After being a patient for over 10 years over the last few years I have been shuffled from one PA to another. The last two visits with different PA's were horrible. Neither took the time to listen to any issues. One spent maybe 7 minutes with me . Told me let's try this med. Come back in two weeks. I said no, I am cash pay I will call you and let you know about the med and my bodies reaction. Next visit, different PA , I was told I was required to take a urine test. Why ? I was told I was required every 6 months . I told her I was cash pay so I needed to know how much this would cost She told me , and I quote , " probably $40.00 - 50.00. NOPE, received the bill $215.00 . The Holiner group has accepted no responsibility in two lies. 1. That it is required 2. The approximate cost. I get that he PA may of had no idea of the cost but you don't tell a patient, especially a cash pay an approximate cost and then to be so far off. I have referred patients in the past but never again.

Dallas, TX – Feb 25, 2019
I was hospitalized and Dr. Joel Holiner was assigned my case. Instead of listening to me when I talked he SANG. He sang whatever he was writing down, he repeated pieces of what I said in a song, and he sang Statler Brothers at me. He made me feel that I was unimportant-just another wrist band, just another file. He wrote prescriptions for medications that I told him I do not need, he had to be told repeatedly that I could not take a medication he prescribed. He wrote 2 of the scripts wrong!

MJ in Dallas, TX – Nov 28, 2018
If you wanted to be treated like a number, and see a NP once a month for five minutes, and never your doctor, go here. The office staff is rude, not helpful, treats you like garbage, and is not at all compassionate. I was told if I wanted to see a doctor, it was a two month waiting period. so your appt with the NP lasts five minutes, and they truly ONLY care about money.

He never has time for you. He has other important things to do. I actually saw him for quite awhile and never spent more than 5 minutes with the guy. However, he was the one who finally got my medications right. He fakes the “Ill pretend I give a damn about you” and it may show if you see him more than once. If you only see him a few times, my guess is you MAY get one of the fake half smiles as he is busy checking a million boxes on a form about you instead of actually getting to know YOU...

Dallas, Tx – Apr 24, 2018
My little sister is being treated by Dr. Holiner which he hasn't helped her one bit. She has anxiety and he refuses to give her meds for it. He listens not to my sister, but our mother who is on pain meds, lies constantly, and going crazy. I thought the Dr. Was going to do his job, but he has failed. He a worthless Doctor, lots of bad reviews, and doesn't listen to young patients. I would never let him be responsible for my child. Worthless!

Killeen, TX – May 25, 2017
Horrible. I thought I was going to be treated by an MD. I paid for an MD. What I got was a condescending PA who did not know enough about the nature of OCD to be treating it. Not only that, average visit time is about seven minutes. Just awful, all the way around. I really can't emphasize that enough.

Irving, TX – Apr 13, 2017
My experience here at Holliner Psychiatric group was terrible. Dr. Joel Holiner was in my first appointment for less than 5 minutes. I mainly spoke with his nurse assistant, which was also not a very pleasant experience. When I asked for clarification on my diagnoses, his nurse was very short and for some reason got offended. It all felt like a drive through diagnoses and not talking me through the process more. I was very sad and frustrating experience to say the least. Please be advised!!!!!!!
