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.
