- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I've been a patient of Dr. Holdiness for almost 20 years. He is a no b.s. physician & I credit his clinical knowledge for always being very spot on with a diagnosis with immediate & effective treatment. His admin staff is great & even if I haven't seen him in a while, if I have a medical issue, they will manage same or next day appointment. Dr. Holdiness is to the point, and if you give him a description of your symptoms, he delivers immediate accurate care. I highly recommend Dr. Holdiness if you want a very good primary care physician. No wait time & no unnecessary tests either. Don't expect over the top warm & fuzzy bedside treatment or a fancy office, but you can rely on intelligence & care about your medical condition!!
My husband, "...Mr. Know It All" had severe abdomen pain for 2 days and would not go to see anyone. I set up an appointment with my physician, Dr. H. , and he diagnosed a hole in colon and within the hour had him in a surgeon's office and operated on that very same day. Now, "...Mr. Know It All" never misses an appointment with Dr. Holdiness !!!!
