A great doctor with excellent and thorough methods in his examination practice. Would recommend Dr. Holt to the whole world.

I stayed with Dr Holt even when I moved to NJ for my job for 2 years. He is a great diagnostition as he found a C spine issue by flicking my middle finger. Love the guy.

Peter has been my primary care doctor for almost forty years. I am probably the patient with whom he has had the longest relationship. He is highly intelligent and well trained (Johns Hopkins). He spends a great deal of time with me on each visit and devotes great attention to my care. He is an excellent diagnostician, and I have only been disappointed once in his referrals. He has my complete trust, and I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor.
i thought he was a good doctor and found out otherwise. He is certainly not worth waiting(iin very uncomfortable chairs) almost 3 hours to see. He is as organized a a tornado. Gave me a scrip for a medication I did not need - and admitted he made a boo-boo - my latest labs were in a box in his car! Finally sent me summaries of my visits that had numerous mistakes in them. Secretary in Abingdon is as crude and rude as can be. Med students sat in on my first visit-he did not ask my permisssion

One of the best doctors I have ever had. You can tell how much he cares about his patients. Wish he had more comfortable chairs in his Abingdon office. Only complaint is how long you must wait to see him since he is so through and spends more time than allotted in the schedule.
Bel Air, MD |
An amazing doctor! If you want someone who actually listens and gets things done this is the man. They don't make doctors like him anymore. Absolutely one of the best doctors hands down!
in Fallston, MD |
Listener, spends what ever time is needed to understand the patient's problems.
in Columbia, MD |
I have been seeing Dr. Holt for roughly 30 yrs for rheumatoid arthritis and possible Lupus. Through the years that I've been treated by Dr. Holt I have found that he is beyond a wonderful and competent physician; he is a delightful person. There have been years when traveling in my job had prevented me from seeing Dr. Holt, but what a pleasure it's been to be a patient back under his care once again. I have never doubted Dr, Holt's medical decisions, or his methods of treatment.
