Robert M. Holtzin, DO

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I want to convey my sincere interest in your health and wellness in order to spark your own interest in helping manage your medical care in order to achieve your goals. I encourage my primary care patients to take ownership of their health in order to control and improve it. As a private doctor, I will help by being a partner and advocate.

In my personalized healthcare practice, similar to a concierge medical practice, I see a reduced number of patients, allowing me the needed time to develop close, personal relationships with all patients and tailor their care to their unique needs. There will be open communication, discussions, understanding and cooperation in decision making and taking action. I love the role of being a coach and cheerleader as patients succeed. It is just two of the many ways I can help you attain optimal health.

I am board certified in family medicine and emergency medicine and have specialized interests in nutrition, primary prevention, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. And I am proud to be a U.S. Army veteran.

My family medicine practice is located in Northfield, New Jersey. I have privileges at Shore Memorial Hospital and AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
