Arrived for my surgery appointment only to find that the Dr Did not plan to do the surgery discussed in consultation for the price he quoted. He was raising the total by 3,000 dollars and suggested that I was trying to get him to preform an additional procedure for free. I told him I was very clear about what we discussed and that procedure was included in his quote but he did tell me the work could be done at a lesser cost if I had the work done under local instead of at the surgery center. Dr Holds may be a good surgeon, I will never know but the lack of any written contract with a full explanation of work to be done was very unprofessional. He added insult to suggest possibly I couldn't afford the work. Well guess what I had already paid the man in full. A very bad start to a surgical event. We cancelled and I made my appointment with Dr Brock Ridenour who laid out specifically in a signed contract what I will be paying for.

I had droopy eyelids that prevented peripheral vision in driving.

Dr. Holds was recommended and I was out of work for 7-10 days. Very pleased with progress and I would recommend Dr. Holds to anyone that needs a blepharoplasty. I thank Dr. Holds and staff for kindness and compassion and I would pray for all of them every day.

Outstanding Experience!!!

I could not be happier with the results of my eyelid procedure. And equally, I can't speak highly enough about the office and staff. From consultation, to procedure, to follow ups, everyone has been so kind and professional. I chose Dr. Holds because eyes are his specialty and I could rest easy knowing his particular expertise. Dr. Holds has a great demeanor and I knew I would be in good hands. SO HAPPY with results!
