Dr. Bill Holgerson is always there for me, from the simplest email question, to a phone call from far away to fill a prescription, to direct contact with him at his office. He has a way of making me feel like I am his only patient. I am confident that he knows my health history. Most of all I appreciate his accessibility. Thanks, Dr. Bill. from Ted P.
Along with my own physical and mental ailment, caring for both my parents with Alzheimer's causes a tremendous amount of stress. Having Dr Holgerson as my physician has reduced my stress levels by always being available for me as a professional, empathetic and caring person.
