Dr Holtzman came recommended by another physician. He was personable, warm, concerned, and supportive. I appreciate that hr knew about my situation and listened to me tell my story... Before he made a decision. I felt we engaged in full shared decision making and I was empowered to make my decision based on the expert opinion he provided. He went above and beyond to make sure I would be taken care of. Finally, he was personable and I felt very comfortable with him. I trusted his.opinion.
