About Dr. Claudia Holland

We are dedicated to providing outstanding healthcare to women of all ages and to addressing the needs that arise at every stage of life. I've been practicing in New York City for over 25 years and have enjoyed taking care of women from both traditional and alternative backgrounds who reflect the complexity and diversity of the city it self. My patients come from the tri-state area and I approach their gynecologic and obstetrical needs in a caring, individualized, and comprehensive manner. I look forward to developing long-term relationships with my patients, counseling them through all aspects of their care and, over the years, getting to know them and their families. In 1986, I joined the faculty at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center (NY-Presbyterian) where I built a thriving private practice and taught medical students and residents. For many years, I was the OB/GYN Director of the multi-specialty Women's Center for Health. In 2004, I joined the faculty of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke's-Roosevelt (now Mount Sinai-Roosevelt) Hospital Center, located at 1000 10th Avenue at 59th Street. My private practice is still located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and encompasses obstetrics (including preconception counseling, pregnancy and post-partum care) and gynecology services from adolescence through menopause. My academic responsibilities include medical student and resident education, supervision of Labor & Delivery, and mentoring residents in clinical patient care. I'm a Board Certified solo practitioner in a small group of caring obstetrician/gynecologists.

Only takes cash? Waited an hour. Then I got called in with 3 other people. Was sent to an office. Waitedsome more. Dr Holland came in. I needed a biopsy. I brought my papsmear results with positive test from another doctor. She decides she doesn't want to use it and has to do her own papsmear. After talking to me for 2 minutes, mostly chitchat, she takes me to another room to do the test and tells me she is coming back in one minute. I hear her go in another room and start a different consult. I wait undressed in the cold room for 20 minutes when I hear her go in yet another consult. The whole thing felt disrespectful and dishonest. Not respecting people's time and just feeling part of a money producing chain. Lesson learned : always check reviews before going in!

While the doctor was lovely, my appointment was at 2:30pm, I was brought into the office around 2:45pm, wasn't seen until after 3:30pm, was then brought into the exam room shortly after to then wait another 20 or so minutes and didn't leave the appointment until 4:15pm. Of the nearly 2 hours I was there only about 20 minutes was consultation and exam. Everyone was really friendly and office was clean, but the amount of time I spent there was far longer than anyone should have to. I would rather be told they were running behind and re-schedule then spend almost 2 hours for a quick exam.

Waited an hour and a half for a five minute conversation with the doc. Was very specific about the service I needed when I made the appointment online, but was told, in that five minute conversation, that they do not offer it, and I would need to be referred elsewhere. Not a great use of time.

I absolutely love Dr Holland. She’s a wonderful doctor who is both knowledgeable in her profession and pleasant to talk to. However, the long wait in the waiting room to see her is really annoying. But, because I like her so much I’m willing to wait. It would be nice if this issue would be addressed.

My appt was at 9:45. I was called in for my appointment around 11:15. I knew there'd be a wait because I walked in to a full waiting room. Turns out Dr. Holland had been at the hospital the night before and had a delayed start to the day. That happens. I'd want her to be there for me when I was delivering a baby. I just wish had communicated the long wait time to us. Instead, we all sat there kind of annoyed. Dr. Holland is WONDERFUL though, and a very fast exam once you get in. Though she will definitely stay and talk with you if you need that time as well.

Dr. Holland is wonderful. I have been her patient for over 10 years. The way her office is simply awful. The wait to be seen is consistently 2 - 3 hours. They do not have Wi-Fi for patients nor do they offer anything to help offset the long wait time such as water.

Holland herself is a nice person and a knowledgeable doctor however I wouldn’t recommend unless you don’t mind rude front desk staff and a ridiculous wait time. Wait time was horrific. I waited over 2 hours to be seen. Additionally, the staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. If you have hours to wait around and don’t mind then this shouldn’t be an issue.

The Holland is highly recommended. I've been seeing her for the last few years after she was recommended by a co-worker. I had bad experiences with other Drs in the past but she does the procedures quickly and and honestly don't feel any discomfort at all .

The wait was absolutely ridiculous. I had to see Dr. Holland in order to get permission to have my baby in Mt. Sinai's now-closed Birthing Center because my BMI at the time was bordering on obese. When I told her that's why I was there she didn't even believe me. She said of course it's fine, that this rule is ridiculous, and goodbye. Great way to spend almost a full day (three hours there, one hour to get there, one hour to get back) while 9-months pregnant.

Dr. Holland is great, but the wait time to see her is consistently awful. I waited just over an hour for my last appointment, and that seems to be the standard. Now, to be fair, Dr. Holland has an excellent bedside manner; she genuinely engages me in conversation about my health (and my life) every time I see her. She is fantastic. I just wonder if there is a better way to schedule folks to see her so we’re not waiting an hour.

Don't waste your time here. I showed up 10 minutes early and was told my appointment was the following day (after I showed them my confirmation text AND email that it was, in fact, that day) and they made me feel as if i was an inconvenience and said they could "probably fit me in" I then waited in the waiting room for over 25 minutes. A nurse came to get me and had me wait in the doctors actual office, which was another 45 minutes. The doctor finally showed up, we spoke very little about my health issues and when she was repeating my "health history" she was saying everything I had told her incorrectly. Then she proceeded to ask me about my job in the service industry and asked what kind of company i worked for along with details regarding what the company offers (wanted info for a party her daughter was having!) Very unprofessional, and nothing about what I was there for. She then guided me to the exam room, where I sat on the exam table in a robe for over an HOUR. The nurse came in twice asking if the doctor had come in yet, and I said no. She came in a third time and I said I had to leave. NO apologies and she didn't seem concerned, so this seems to be a typical wait time for most patients. I was so upset since my one day off (to prepare for my wedding) was ruined (it was supposed to be q quick, routine check up!) and that they would treat patients like this. I do not recommend seeing this doctor. You will wait and wait and wait again (total time was 2 and a half hours). Its a waste of time and, and on top of that, she is unprofessional.
