Comment from patient satisfaction survey

Dr. Holm has performed 10 surgeries on my arms and shoulders. I would go as far as saying he is the best and he is the only surgeon I would let perform any procedure on me.

Survey Feedback

Dr. Holm and his staff are the best at courtesy, professionalism, concern for my health and test results, surgeries, aftercare, and just plain doctoring and caring.

Survey Feedback

Dr. Holm is a wonderful doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone needing upper extremity care!

comment from patient satisfaction survey

Dr. Holm is a great doctor/surgeon with excellent listening/knowledge skills. His staff is just like him and very caring. If he is late seeing me it is because he is giving excellent care to someone else – and I will get that care as well.

Survey Feedback

I trust Dr. Holm 100% with my care.

Comment from patient satisfaction survey

Dr. Holm is an excellent doctor. More than 20 years ago he repaired the ligaments in my right hand after I ran it through a wringer washer.  I regained 85% of the strength in my hand. I am returning for a tune up. So far so good.

Love the service, concern, and follow up from all Summit Orthopedics staff.  Dr. Holm is the best.
