Dr Holtzman is excellent! He has reconstructed my Achilles' tendon on both feet and has done a few minor procedures as well. I would be afraid to go to anyone else. He's professional, pleasant and listens. The practice is busy but I don't mind waiting for him. It's well worth it.

Dr. Holtzman was caring and thoroughly explained my options and procedure with my bunion surgery to me. The one complaint I have is a lack of communication between his staff. Differing instructions between nurses and on call doctor vs my doctor to the point I questioned if I had heard my doctor correctly when he verbally gave me instructions. Seems like complete step by step instructions should be given to patients to avoid confusion. Only complaint thus far and I'm 4 weeks out from surgery.

I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and Dr. Holtzman came highly recommended from a friend. My positive patient experience began with his friendly receptionist who had me scheduled quickly. The care team was great--quick check-in, short wait, and in for my appointment where I was seen by a nurse (assessment & x-rays) and Dr. Holtzman who clearly explained my condition, prognoses and treatment options. Doctor Holtzman & team are professional, respectful, and friendly. HIGHLY recommended!

Dr. Holtzman is an excellent physician and surgeon. He has helped me with plantar fasciitis, hammertoes and neuromas. He is NOT quick to cut on you like many other people are. I would not trust my feet to anyone else. I have been very satisfied with the care Dr. Holtzman has given me. My feet have been stable for the last several years. If anything would flare, I would not hesitate to return.

Dr. Holtzman was the most caring foot doctor I have seen about my bilateral bunions. He took the time to listen to me and stated he would ONLY due surgery if my feet were painful, he would NOT perform surgery for cosmetic purposes only. I wanted my right foot done first due to how 'ugly' it was, but he stated my left foot was 'worse' per the X-rays; he's the professional, so I went with his decision. I have had tremendous results and am looking forward to having my right foot done soon!!

I made two appointments to see this doctor. Both times, my appointments were cancelled the day before. The first appointment was actually cancelled 30 minutes prior. I would not recommend this doctor or this practice, they are completely unreliable.
