Holzman went above and beyond what most doctors would do in describing my condition, talking me through my options, and spending time with me.

He was prompt to give me the options I had and if I had any concerns what I can decide and it was very helpful

Both Dr. Holzman and his associate doctor listened to me, made suggestions and then came up with a plan to alleviate some the problems I've been having. They wasted no time in scheduling and sending over a prescription.

Extremely knowledgeable and experienced, spent plenty of time explaining my issue, providing a thorough exam and explaining upcoming surgery. Very caring and friendly. Very fortunate to be able to have Dr Holzman as my surgeon.
