I went to her for my first physical in years when I was 33 because I suspected I was having problems with my prostate. I had to beg her to give me a prostate exam since I wasn't "old enough" to have this exam yet. She finally relented and sure enough I had an enlarged prostate. Other problems I had with her was her nurse told me to undress completely but I wasn't provided a drape to cover up with. So when Dr. Holtsclaw came in, she shouted out "you're naked" with the door still propped open. Also this room that I was in was adjacent to the waiting room unlike the other exam rooms. I'm not sure why she made a big deal about it since she would be giving me prostate and testicular exams and seeing me naked anyway. During prostate exams she used chaperones which doesn't bother me, I'm not shy, and usually they were nurses. But one time she used the receptionist who looked like she was just out of high school because all the nurses were busy. I wasn't embarrassed but I felt bad for the young lady because she was blushing badly. I apologized to her when I checked out that she had to be in there for my exam and she shared that I was the first nude male she had seen. Dr. Holtsclaw put one of her staff in an awkward situation and needless to say I stopped going to her.
I was bring my newborn ton her office up till she was 3 months old. I brought my child into her office at 3 months for a bad cough and high temp. I knew something was not right with her. When we got there she told me it was a virus.... She'll be fine. I did not take her word for it. I took her right to the ER. There they said she needed a xray of her lungs right away come to find out she had reflux that causes pneumonia and bronchitis. The put her in the children's hospital for 2 days because while at the er she stopped breathing and turned blue. Needless to say if I would of token her drs diagnosis and trusted it and went home in really don't known if my little girl now 18 months would be here with me. I guess u can't trust all drs.
The nurses are always friendly and polite, but the nurse practitioner that has been seeing my newborn has been horrible. She acts as if she does not want to be there. It seems as she is guessing in her diagnosis of a rash on my babies face. The last visit had to be the worse the nurse practitioner actually sneezed into her hand wiped it on her pants and then continued to touch my four month old. I had to ask her to use the sanitizer.
