Dr Holland-Barkis is the most genuine, caring doctor I've ever had. she continually amazes me with her knowledge and diagnoses, after- hour follow upcalls, responses to my messages on my chart, etc! I really don't know how she finds the time to get to all her patients so effectively- because I'm sure she treats all her patients the same! I just love and appreciate Dr HBarkis!
