One of the worst Dr. visits I ever had. Dr. Holzberg rushed me in and out. He looked in my throat. He said he did not see anything; and that was it. He didnot give any suggestions on how I could find out what was going on. He just literally walked me to the door. He was very cold. I should have known there would be a problem. I got a appointment very,very quick.

Dr Holzberg came up very short as a physician. He did not seek any additional information about the our friend with Alzheimers when told that she has reoccurring ear infections. His many was dismissive and the exam was unsatisfactory with zero review of symptoms. Certainly, Dr. Holzberg’s point that he saw no infection (she had just finished a course of antibiotics); however, his "“come back when she has it” with absolutely no other communication but non verbal "get out" was rude.

Direct and to the point. Answered questions and was reassuring. I would use him again without hesitation.

I saw Dr. Holzberg for a serious vertigo after waiting 50 min. He did not take a history nor do a physical!! He spent < 2 minutes with me, and sent me for HOURS of expensive testing w/ his staff, and told me he would meet with me immediately after the tests. But after the tests which made me so nauseas that I could not drive home, he had left! Plus, after the tests were over I was told they were null/void since I am on Keppra, a medication that interferes with the tests!! He never asked my meds!

Do NOT see this man. Awful. He was dismissive and barely spent 5 minutes with me. By far one of the worst doctors I have ever met. Stay away.

After spending a considerable amount of time on the phone with Associates in Otolaryngology, I was finally given an appointment with Dr. Holzberg. When I showed up, weeks later, the receptionist had no record of my appointment...none. All she could offer was how strange it was, since the doctor wasn't even in that day. At no point did she apologize for what was a major inconvenience and collosal waste of my time. Instead she got mad at me for being frustrated that she showed no remorse.
Dr. Holzberg was very dismissive. He was not thorough in his examination, asked few questions and did not resolve the issue I came in with (intermittent ear aches). We were in each other's presence for 3 minutes - after a one hour wait beyond my appointment time. I was offended and disappointed to say the least.

Dr. Holzberg just took care of my 2nd son's sinus problem today. I brought him to the doctor because he had been extremely helpful with my older son's ear problems years ago.
