Care Philosophy

I serve as a PCP specializing in Internal Medicine. I enjoy providing continuity of care for my patients. Many of my patients have been with me for over 20 years. I focus on providing comprehensive care and try to provide as much of that care as I am trained for and then coordinating the care with other specialist as needed. In my opinion that provides the best care for the patient which is what high quality medicine is all about, the patient. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and has been on staff at Ochsner Health System since 1990. I graduated from LSU-Shreveport, graduating magna cum laude. I then earned my M.D. degree from the LSUMC in New Orleans where I was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and received the Mosby Award for Academic Excellence. I completed my Internal Medicine Residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Tx.

My first time there and the office staff was so nice and helpful. Dr. Holmes was thural with his exam and helped me to get a new arthritis Dr.. Very pleased with my choice of physician.

He is very kind. He takes the time to listen and explains things to where you can understand.
I wish I could give Dr. Holmes ZERO stars. I went to see Dr. Holmes the first time in September 2016. At this time he became my primary care physician. He has now refused to refill a vital medication and referred me to a neurologist for a refill. I tried to get the neurologist to refill, but he wouldn't before seeing me. After 2 brain tumors & 4 craniotomies I am without an anti-seizure drug. I am not supposed to go without this drug. If I have seizures because of this, it will be his fault.
We sincerely apologize for the issue you described. Please respond to connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along to a patient representative. We'd like to have someone reach out to you.

You can count on Dr. Holmes to be thorough. Additionally in my case, I suffered symptoms of Meniere's disease prior to having ever being seen by Dr. Holmes. There was a simple fix for this that many doctors I saw prior to Dr. Keith Holmes were unaware even 17 years later! The wait time is reasonable and his staff out in Central are wonderful! I recommend Dr. Keith Holmes to all my friends and family.
