My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I have been a general internist in private practice for many years. Because of my experience as a high school and college athlete; I have always maintained a focus on healthy living, wellness, prevention and physical fitness. The mission of my medical practice is to catch potential medical issues early and treat them with a holistic approach. My interactions with patients often include not just an explanation of treatments and outcomes, but also the contribution of appropriate nutrition, lifestyle adjustments and physical activity. My view of a holistic approach to medical care is to attend to a multisystem appreciation of disease processes and take the same all-encompassing approach to how my patients interact with the world around them. Therefore, when appropriate, I may provide guidance on choosing an activity tracker, insect-proof clothing or avoiding environmentally associated illnesses. My medical experience and training includes not just internal medicine, but also aviation medicine, occupational medicine, physical therapy, infection control, public health, disaster medicine and bioenvironmental medicine. One of the most rewarding aspects of medical practice is to meld medical knowledge and training with extensive varied experiences to explore a patient’s concerns or conditions.

Recently I had a gastrointestinal problem over a weekend. Extremely painful and one I couldn't resolve even with the assistance of my wife a retired RN. Thanks to MDVIP, I was able to contact Dr Holthaus early on a Saturday morning, and he listened to my problem and symptoms and gave me advice on what OTC drugs I needed and how to resolve my pain and get relief.

Dr. Hothaus has has taken a personal intrest in my health. I feel that he cares abount helping me with today's issue and tomorrow's unkown issues. He also coordinates my care with other doctors, as a PCP should.He listens, provides advice, and acts. His Staff is also GREAT!

I met Dr. Holthaus last summer and have appreciated our relationship in all respects. He is helping me facilitate my path to improving my health, and I have never met someone so willing to be of assistance. Recently back issues presented themselves in a very quick and painful manner. He did everything possible to help me manage the condition and when necessary referred me to a great… See more
I have been a patient of Dr. Kevin for over ten years. I have high confidence in his advice and counsel. Although I live almost an hour from the office, I will continue to rely upon him and his excellent staff for my primary care needs.
I met Dr. Holtaus in December 2016, I was dying of liver failure and badly in need of a transplant to survive. Dr. Holtaus not only provided me with guidance and care that helped extend my life long enough to receive a transplant but he acted as an advocate with the transplant center to help me get considered for the gift of a life saving transplant.
in a hectic world, few professionals take the necessary time to get to know a patient's needs - beyond just their stats and lab work - I deeply appreciate Dr Holthaus' commitment to having a real health partnership with me because nothing is more precious than my health.
I have been seeing Dr. Holthaus for 25 plus years. We have a very good relationship as he knows just about everything about me. We have had a love/hate relationship which has kept me alive. I say that because he would mince no words with me when I came for visits. He totally understands me and sometimes I dreaded my visits because I sometimes had not been a good patient.
He has guided me… See more
