My primary doctor sent me to see Dr. Holtzclaw to check my hip. He is truly a great Doctor. Diagnosed the problem and gave me total relief. I have so much faith in this Doctor.

I would not recommend this doctor. He didn't examine me or look at 3 MRI reports. He spent approximately 60 seconds with me. He wasn't willing to listen to any of my problems or concerns with my hip. His PA did examine and asked a few questions. I liked the PA, to bad he wasn't the Dr.

Thoroughly pleased and appreciative!

I flew my 83 yr old mother from Delaware for hip replacement surgery. In 4 wks she flew back home and is pain free! I appreciated Dr. Holtzclaw's surgical and clinical skills. He is a man of few words but I appreciated his conciseness. My mother always felt at ease in his care. I also appreciated having access to a portal to email questions to his nurse Risa, who efficiently responded.
