Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hollister "Our goal is to help and encourage our patients by partnering with them. Optimizing your health status is something that requires some work from both parties - and it is worth that effort. We understand that patients come from many different backgrounds and have differing levels of understanding in the medical realm. We care for patients in all walks of life including: students, teachers, law enforcement, military, engineers, home makers, tech and service industry, nurses and even physicians. Patients often have different and creative ideas about their own care. We will work with you to help you integrate and coordinate these ideas into your reasonable, appropriate and individualized care plan that respects you and your beliefs. We respect and encourage your spiritual beliefs. "

Patient Comments (4)

My family has been seeing Dr. Hollister since we moved to Colorado Springs in 2001. He is knowledgeable, and is great at coordinating care with the other physicians in town. We especially like the way his office follows up with lab reports, and the specialist reports/summaries.
