Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Holtzman "I believe in the power of the doctor patient relationship. A patient's trust is crucial, and only a caring physician who takes time to listen will be able to diagnose and treat a difficult diagnosis. A doctor must be able to rely on their training, but must also be able to think creatively and apply novel approaches when appropriate. A patient's care is the most valuable asset placed in a doctor's charge, and physicians must take every oppurtunity to treat, listen, advocate, and care for their patient's well being above and beyond all else."

Let me be clear....I was extremely skeptical that any doctor could help me with my injury. More importantly, I had no idea Dr. Holtzman would be as compassionate about my pain. It was the end of a long day, yet Dr. Holtzman had all the energy in the world to take great care of me. He legitimately cared about pain, my well being, and offered me options. Dr. Holtzman cared about me, treated me appropriately, and gave me the confidence to get back on my feet. Thank you, Dr. Holtzman!
Dr. Holtman has been so comprehensive and interested in all my problems. I was reading his reviews and I cannot imagine to what the disgrunteled anonymous review of april 30 could have been referring! Dr. Holtzman even tries to help me with non neurologic problems when he can. This anonymous review might have come from a drug addict upset that she couldn't score narcotics, as that is the only thing I know he tries to avoid giving out. I'm so glad he's my doctore!

I seen Dr. Holtzman today 5/9/17 He was Awesome. So easy to speak with. Felt like I knew him for years. Highly Highly recommend him. I know a few other Neuroligist are in the Downriver/Dearborn area. I would only chose Dr. Holtzman. I even worked for a Neuroligist and still chose Dr. Holtzman

Regarding the list of conditions Dr. Holtzman treats, he overrepresents the degree(s) to which he is willing to help with at least one condition. Perhaps if you have one of his special interest conditions you may receive adequate treatment. He was rude and disrespectful; was a waste of my money, time and energy. Could not have been more disappointed.

Dr. Holtzman is a very caring wonderful doctor. He always takes his time with me explaining everything and answering all my questions. I went to another neurologist before seeing Doctor Holtzam but he failed to compare to the high quality of care I received from Doctor Holtzam. I would highly recommend him to anybody thinking of seeing a neurologist and if I could I would give him 10+ starts.

Down-to-Earth, smart, funny, & CONCERNED. He doesn't think he is high & mighty because he's a doctor- therefore, he listens & works with the patient to form a team, thinking outside of the box, which is what got me a diagnosis that many others had missed. He didn't take the easy way out & instead realized that my list of symptoms was me asking for more help. He takes the whole body into account. Great doc, great person.

Went in with a week long migraine and by the time I left I had a game plan and relief!!! Something that 2 trips to ER didn't fix! So pleased with his bedside manor and treatment plan! Also it only took me a day to get in!

Dr. Holtzman is excellent! He takes his time, looks you in the eye, repeats what you told him so that he understands what was said. He explains test results and diagnosis thoroughly.
