Patient Comments (1)
in Estero, FL |
Dr. Holmes was responsible for my care while I was a patient with a serious staph infection at Tri-City Medical Center. I was admitted through the Emergency Room on May 31, 2016 and discharged as an in-patient on June 3, 2016. I found him to be a man of the finest personal and professional intelligence and skills. He was also caring, but direct, in performing treatment and directing a plan of treatment by other staff at Tri-City. I was visiting CA, so his care was free of any selfish motive,
