My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Wellness is an active process, unique to each individual. Personal wellness requires that we are aware of areas where we can improve our health and achieving wellness can only be accomplished by a partnership between patient and doctor where there is adequate time to identify areas for improvement and then monitoring for success.

from Anne in MA March 26, 2017 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Dr. Holgerson, MD has been my doctor probably since the late 1970s and also my late husband's doctor. He has always been caring in there for both of us through many major illnesses. I feel I can call him and talk to him when ever I need to do so.

from Andrew March 5, 2017 for William B. Holgerson, MD

It is hard to believe that it is now coming up on 5 years since I was smart and lucky enough to choose Dr. Holgerson as my PCP.

He has helped me in so many ways, starting with reconstructing my emotional life, which fell apart during 2012-13 when I was going through a very ugly divorce and estrangement from my entire family. When I look back I realize how close I became to becoming… See more

from Dorothea in MA March 4, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Hi,

I am in very good health and would like to keep it that way given good health is one of the most important things in life next to family and friends. When Dr. Holgerson joined MDVIP, my husband and I had to discuss justifying the expense to join MDVIP and here were our thoughts.
1. Dr. Holgerson has been our internist for many years and we have been so pleased with his care -… See more

from Elaine in MA February 24, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Dr. Holgerson has three important gifts that make him stand out: the ability to listen, the ability to make a real connection with his patients, and a great sense of humor. The office has a personality. The artwork, the books, and the staff create an environment that is warm and welcoming. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have myself and my family under Dr. Holgerson's care.

from Pamela in MA February 23, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Bill Holgerson is everyone's dream doctor. He listens, patiently and carefully, and he hears what is not being said as clearly as what is. He treats me like a full partner in caring for my health. He has been with me through raising my small children to productive adulthood (while simulaneously raising his own), through my husband's devastating and finally fatal illness, early… See more

from Joanne in MA February 23, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Dr. William Holgerson has been my primary care for close to thirty years. When he joined MDVIP there was no hesitation on my part or my husband that we would follow him. He is one of the most intelligent and compassionate physicians I have known in my seventy plus years. He is readily available and caring. If there is problem outside of his expertise he recommends the appropiate specialist. Dr… See more

from John in MA February 23, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

My experience with Dr. Holgerson goes back some 27 years. He was actually my first doctor in my adult life and it was my life that he saved.I had never had any physical problems in my life and therefore never had a physician. At 48 I had an angioplasty procedure and I was still experiencing what I believed to be chest pain from my heart. The angioplasty had gone so well and simply that I could… See more

from Julie E in MA February 15, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

From the office support staff to Dr. Holgerson himself everyone is responsive and focused on getting you the help you need. My husband and I have been grateful for the ability to address even small problems quickly and not feel foolish for calling over something that turns out to be nothing. Medical issues can be frightening and we worry so much less because we feel we are a phone call away… See more

from Betsy in MA February 13, 2014 for William B. Holgerson, MD

I have known William Holgerson for many years - starting back when he was a medical resident at our local hospital and I was a nurse in the CCU.
When I heard he went into private practice locally, I immediately entered his practice -- I Think that was about 20-25 years ago. He is now part of MDVIP and I still thoroughly enjoy his wisdom and efficient, wise, and friendly personality. He… See more
