    in Tallahassee, Florida |
    Dr. Hollifield has calm and gentle mannerisms. However, he is to the point and does not accept dishonesty. Dr. Hollifield helped me to be realize I was predominantly hurting myself with my dishonesty about my addiction. I am truly grateful to have him working with me as my addiction specialist physician.
