Great experience! Thanks
in Boise, ID |
I really enjoyed him and his staff. He did a great job on my cataract surgery and I'm doing great.

Beware. I had a simple cataract removal and I'm still having vision difficulty a year later. i had serious pain for the first 6 months, including cornea infection. He did not see that I had Ocular Rosacea and he could have given me an eye antibiotic. Generally he does not see patients unless there's a problem. He probably is a great surgeon, but in my opinion it was a huge mistake to miss my Rosacea and to believe the herpies virus will not shed to infect others unless there's obvious outbreak.

Hands down, eyes wide open, the best LASIK experience. It was easier than getting a haircut. Dr. Hollingshead is awesome. Wait times for improvement of vision, who cares??!! Paperwork??!!! Who cares. For crying out loud! When you walk away from a building and can see a flippin street sign, heck, I would stand in line for days!!!! It's not a concert people! It's your eyes! I wouldn't trust. I other, whole staff is great! Keep it up!

I made an appointment him Dr. Holdingshead specifically and got some other physician. The nurse put way too much dializion solution in my eyes that caused problems for months. Also she was quite rough and only seemed concerned about going on vacation the next week. A normal hour appointment took almost 3 hours (mostly waiting).
Maggie, I am saddened to read of your 3 hour appointment. You are correct in that should never happen for a routine appointment. If you would be so kind and contact our administrator (Lou) at 386-3299 and please explain your ordeal with him. In the end, I am responsible for how each and every patient is treated while at my office and it is important that we make certain this does not happen again. Thank you for caring enough to leave comments.

I wouldn't return to and wouldn't recommend Dr. Hollingshead simply because I spent more time filling out forms and answering questions regarding advertising and marketing than he actually spent in the room with me. The assistant who conducted my appointment sounded like she had memorized a script and I felt more like I was part of a cattle drive than a patient. He may have the experience but I would much rather go someplace smaller with a staff who cares about their patients.
Jen, I am baffled by the marketing and advertising forms. That is generally paperwork intended for LASIK screenings and even then any information shared is purely optional. If you could be so kind and please contact my administrator (Lou) at 386-3299 and explain your ordeal we can make sure to make the improvements that everyone deserves from their eye care provider. Thank you for taking the time to leave comments.
