Physical Exams

Certain types of injuries and conditions require specialized treatment to ensure a full recovery. Specialists in general surgery can repair or perform other medical procedures often necessary to restore an injured patient to their former quality of life. Our general surgery team offers office consultations to discuss and choose the best possible treatment option for each case. Minimally invasive surgical options, comprehensive care, and advanced surgical treatments are conveniently available for patients in our community.

"Met Dr. Holzer in the ER last year. She is very knowledgeable. Returned to update me and check on me and listened to me. That is much appreciated. I described her to friends as being able to talk to a friend, but knowing how experienced she was as a doctor. A 5 heart rating!"
