Dr Holds is one of the few physicians who thoughtfully listens to patients concerns and discusses treatment options. Additionally, his office team is professional, pleasant and accommodating - they work to schedule quickly and keep appointment times (minimizing in office wait). Dr. Holds and his practice is a best in class experience. Thank you for the exceptional care.
Dr. Holds, on my first visit, renewed my hope that I would be OK and able to have better function of my eye, cheek and mouth. He did not promise what he could not deliver but he gave me hope that I had lost. His staff is wonderful and either answers my questions and or finds the answer for me. They are also very accommodating as for scheduling appts. since I drive 4.0 hrs to get there. Great team of people.
