My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

One patient at a time with one goal in mind: keep my patients healthy. Predict health issues before they arise; treat current problems aggressively; walk the terminally ill through their passage to the end. Our health is a precious asset that needs nurturing and constant reassessment. My ideal is to maintain that personal touch in a world of ever expanding technology. Relationships are crucial in medicine and my objective is to know every patient personally and to foster those relationships as we both go forward in our journeys. Respecting each patient's unique perspective and helping to guide the patient in making the best choices. Oh, and remember: “always think outside the box”.

Dr Holliday's availability has been amazing and reminds me of History and how it used to be when you could pick up the phone and get help with your concerns.
His office staff has been incredible.
Not many doctors in this world comparable to him.

Dr. Holliday is a very caring and concerned Doctor. We are blessed of the Lord to have him as our Dr. He knows what he is doing and has helped get my diabetes under control and my blood pressure also.
Dr. Holliday listens and explains things well.

from Reba and Russ in TN February 11, 2014 for H. Douglas Holliday, MD

The first time I met Doc, he and Dr. Miller were out front of the Bellevue office planting a tree. That was close to 35 years ago. We are getting old! I have never needed him when I did not get connected to him in some way. When Russ had his last surgery, he was in Argentina hunting ducks and I think he spent more time texting me that he did shooting ducks. Even with his weird sense of humor… See more
