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.

We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Holgerson as our primary care physician for over 30 years. He has always been thorough in his examinations, compassionate when dealing with stressful health situations and responsive no matter the time of day or day of week. We could not be happier to be able to give testimony to a very well deserving doctor.

I just wanted to commend Maria Carpenter and her team at MDVIP Dr. Bill Holgerson for outstanding communication and client service.

Dr. William Holgerson, M.D. has been my Primary Care Physician for the past 30+ years and it's no coincidence that at age 70 I'm still in good health.

from Julia in MA March 16, 2020 for William B. Holgerson, MD

In the 35 years that Dr. Holgerson has been my physician he has practiced the balance of what a patient wants and what a patient needs. He always listens to my concerns and has always been there for me. Dr. Holgerson is extremely hard working, intuitive, kind, patient and is fulfilling a life long commitment to taking care of others. I am extremely grateful he is my physician.

from Paul in MA March 12, 2020 for William B. Holgerson, MD

Dr. Holgerson has provided tests, prescribed medications, and suggested behavioral changes that have kept me healthy. His listening to my problems is careful and relaxed. And he assured me or sends me on to specialists. I have history of early death in family from heart disease. He’s kept me alive and healthy. Thank you, Dr. Holgerson.

My mother was a patient of Dr. Holgerson. She was diagnosed with Large B Cell Lymphoma at the end of February 2015. My mom was hospitalized for her first chemotherapy session because she was 91 and weak. Two weeks after she returned home from her first treatment she started to deteriorate. She became exhausted and dehydrated. She wasn't eating and her breathing became very rapid. I… See more

You are THE BEST ! We've known each other since those days in CCU: you as a resident and me as cardiac nurse. That was just yesterday, wasn't it??

Thank you for always being there for me.
