I have been seeing Dr. Holmes for years. I would refer her in a heartbeat, just as I was referred to her by a friend of mine. She is professional and she really shows she cares. She keeps the appointments concise and finds quick possible solutions to avoid wasting anyone's time. She also conducts her appointments with a smile. It is always a pleasant visit when I go to see Dr. Holmes.

My apt. time was at 3:00 pm. Usually this office is able to see me on time however this time I waited about 90 minutes before being seen. I suggest providing patients with updates as to when they will be seen so they have the option of rescheduling, rather than waiting around. Fortunately I didn't have somewhere to be until 6:30 pm

I was disappointed. The front desk staff was not very friendly. I signed in and waited. I was the only one in the waiting area. After about 15 minutes I was called up to the desk and asked for my insurance and ID cards. Then I was handed papers to complete! I completed the forms and thought to myself that I could have completed the forms sooner had they just been handed to me once I walked in. I returned the forms to the desk and asked if the forms were available online. I was told that the forms were in deed online. I commented that I wish the gentleman that made my appointment over the phone would have let me know. It would have saved time. I was called back shortly after completing the forms. Dr. Holmes and a young lady in “rotation” appeared relatively quickly. Dr. Holmes asked if it was my first time in the office. The doctor spoke very loudly and rather fast. Her observation of my condition and the reason I came in was very fast and not very thorough. She simply prescribe medication and a follow-up appointment. I had to review with her assistant the instructions since she went so fast.

I have a long-term, insidious skin condition with my lower lip, but something tells me if anyone's to figure this one out, it'll be Dr. Holmes. To quote Reverend Jesse Jackson, "Keep hope alive!"

Dr. Holmes was able to answer my questions without any hesitation and gave me samples of products for eczema and dermatitis so I can see if they are effective before purchasing full-sized prescriptions. My past two visits I saw Caroline, the PA, and she was wonderful too!

Dr.Holmes and her staff, especially her Medical Asst or Nurse Practitioner, Caroline (can't remember which one she is) are excellent. They are very caring, knowledgeable, patient and efficient. They put care in healthcare. I highly recommend Dr. Holmes and her staff to all (man, woman, child, etc.). When you are good at what you do and love what you do, it shows in the fruit your bare. Great practice!! :0)

Each time I've gone to Dr.Holmes, I always feel that I received the best care. She is not only very professional and knowledgeable, she takes the time to explain in a lay persons language exactly what the condition is and what the treatment will be. She is always cheerful and I have recommended her to others, who found her to be exactly as I described. Dr. Holmes also makes follow up calls to check on my progress. Many stars on all fronts to Dr. Holmes

I came in for an unexplained rash that was spreading all over my face, arms and chest. Yolanda spent literally 2 minutes with me, and kept trying to cut me off and leave the room but I had a bunch of questions. She didn't know what it was and didn't ask me any questions about possible exposures. She just wrote me a prescription and left. I had also wanted to get some acne medication but she was out like a light. The prescription didn't work in the end, but 2 weeks later the rash went away on its own. Never again- she's just trying to rack up insurance claims by seeing as many patients as possible it seems.

This is a very high-volume practice. I probably spoke to Dr. Holmes for less than 5 minutes and I had to specifically ask for her. Her PA was very professional and seemed capable of dealing with most issues, but I wanted to speak to Dr. Holmes anyway.

Dr Holmes is very helpful and her office assistant Cristina is wonderful. However, the rest of the staff is disappointing. While Cristina will answer my emails and questions promptly, the rest of the staff always makes me call in though I don't see why they have to do that as opposed to emailing. When I speak with him he is impossible to understand over the phone- very soft spoken and doesn't really come across as a professional or like he cares. His voice tends to trail off at the end of sentences. I have also had issues with him returning my calls.

Dr Holmes is an OUTSTANDING doctor. I have alopecia which is a stressful and depressing condition. She is encouraging, always looking for a positive angle, and giving stress reducing techniques. She is not only well versed in her field but she has given me referrals to other doctors that are just as professional as she is. I adore Dr Holmes and how professional she is and she is extremely empathetic regarding the situation faced by those of us with dermalogical issues. So grateful for Dr Holmes!!!!!!

I was initially disappointed that I wasn't able to meet with Dr. Holmes and wasn't given an explanation as to why I was assigned another doctor. With that being said, the doctor I met with was attentive, knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions. I'm excited to see the results of my new treatment.
