Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Patient Comments (4)
Colville, Wa. |
I Have been to see Dr. Holling several times in the last 20 years, and finally gave up and am seeing an ophthalmologist in Spokane. Dr. Holling is an OK doctor, but is often curt, and to the point of being rude. As far as I'm concerned, he is arrogant.
Nine Mile Falls, WA |
Rude, and egotistical, especially with senior citizens. Would not recommend Dr Holling.
I am sorry for your unpleasant experience. Dr. Holling has been treating seniors for over 30 years and has always enjoyed helping them.

Great Dr! So kind! So pleased with my surgery ! Staff is amazing ! Treated like family!
Thank you for your kind remarks! Dr. Holling has enjoyed working with seniors for more than 30 years and values them as patients.

He was short, curt, almost sarcastic, spent as little time as possible with us, and then charged the both of us over $300.00, what was left over after medicare. When my husband forgot an appointment (which is common for the elderly), he charged him for the appointment. We are on social security. We are not going back to him.
I am sorry for you bad experience at your appointments. You were NOT charged for a missed appointment as Dr. Holling has never charged for missed appointments. You were charged for the Medicare and insurance deductible, as that was your responsibility according to the Medicare explanation of benefits. You were also charge for the eye refraction which is never covered by Medicare or Medicare supplemental insurances and is listed in your Medicare coverage booklet as not covered.
