I would like to thank Dr Holt for the great job he did no me
in Bloomfield, KY |
Dr Richard Holt has done 2 surgery so on my spine. I seen 4 other surgeons who refused to touch my spine, they said it wasn't possible. I just found out his practice is closing. I hate to start this battle all over again. This Dr help me so much now how do I start all over again.

Completely unprepared and seemed to have no idea why we were there. Also doesn't even know if he's going to be in practice in a few months so he's completely disorganized. Bedside manner SUCKED. Waited 2 hours to get a 3-minute opinion from him that wasn't even complete because he was unprepared. I understand he's a good surgeon, but there's no rule that a doctor can't be good at his craft AND respect people's time and resources.

He did my back surgery and broke the screw driver off in my back.I was as told he is the best but I was so scared and uncomfortable the day surgery that I cried did not want to do it .Its like talking to mentally handicapped person .He waited until a week later to tell me the screw driver broke off in the screw and he left it we could do another surgery if I wanted to and get it out my only question is why didn't he take it out then no I wouldn't recommend him but you're choice
