PROS:Excellent service from the Doctor, very professional, took the time to explain issues and recommendations for my 2 month old. Definitely will keep coming back to see Dr. Hollowell. CONS: Took over an hour to get called in to see thedoctor even though my sons appointment was @11:15am. Never took the time to explain that it will be more than an hour. The front desk put me on hold for over 10 mins when calling before the appointment. Its hard to get someone on the phone.

Very impressed with his knowledge and willingness to make me better when so many other Palm Beach County doctors gave up on me. I've been so discouraged but Dr. Hollowell has given me hope of improvement. God bless him.

Dr Hollowell was not prepared to talk with me. He had not reviewed my records from N. Broward Hospital and was not prepared to render a prognosis. This may be fault of the staff who is supposed to make sure allthe records are presented to him in advance. He gave my records a brief look and then came back in. I did not get a prognosis of the stones that are in my kidneys. These are increasing in size and will eventually give me a serious problem. What do we do about this. Same for the cyst in my prostate? I do not want to wait until I have to go to emergency to mitigate these problems. When I return for a followup in February I hope he will offer a better prognosis and plan.

Gr8 doctor with a good bedside manner and what appears to be a genuine interest in the patient's well-being. Appears to know his stuff very well and imparts his knowledge in a very interested and non-threatening way and also has gr8style. Definitely an asset to this practice and one of the better physicians serving the south Florida community.

While the visit to Dr. Hollowell met expectations, I would not use ZocDoc again. There was a lot of confusion with the scheduling of the appointment. They had me scheduled with another doctor, and when I arrived to the Fort Lauderdale office, there was no record of my appointment .
