I had the worst experience with this doctor. I wtd almost an hour to be greeted by a pompous doctor who had no interest in talking with me. He preferred to text, talk at me, and then proceeded to play a video and walk out without any explanation as to what was going on. After sitting there for 10 minutes (the video was less than 5 minutes long), I walked out. He clearly has no interest in helping or getting to know his patients. He recited his sales pitch & on 2 next victim. ONLY CARE IS $$$$

Dr Holover performed my gastric sleeve surgery Oct 2017. He is an amazing surgeon whose confidence puts you at ease. His office staff is extremely professional. His staff of nutrionist and physician assistants are caring, patient and true professionals. Offices are immaculate

RIPOFF. Told me they did med supervised weightloss-then refused to even entertain that idea unless I bought his line of shakes. They had me take an exhaled air test that gave a false reading of me having a fast metabolism. Does anyone go to a bariatric center bc they have a fast metabolism? Holover was not interested in me bc I'm not big enough for or interested in surgery. I was charged $2600 for 8 minutes of his time& a breathing test. I'm reporting him to my insurance.
