Ratings for Dr. Joel E. Holloway
Dr Holloway incompetence has left me scarred and cancer has returned less than 6 months in the exact same spot. Staff seems to live in fear and will barely even talk. He may have been a good dr 25 or 30 years ago, maybe. Dr's have a responsibility to educate patients and patients are entitled to explanations.
I get that some people like the fact that Holloway is fast and efficient. However, it comes at the cost of the patients who are merely trying to get the proper diagnoses. This man is extremely curt, has zero bedside manner, doesn't ask questions, and he definitely won't answer any of your questions. He is one of those physicians who has already diagnosed you before he's even seen you. If you do attempt to even politely tell him about just one symptom you have, he will immediately make a snide remark or hurtful comment. I will never return to Dr. Holloway's office after my one visit. I think a doctor should possess some semblance of an open mind whenever he or she walks into the examination room. And he or she should be willing or able to answer a question that any patient may have. I really wish I'd have been more assertive when I was seen by him. I spent 45 minutes filling out patient forms, and all of two minutes in the examination room with him. Why bother with the forms if he doesn't even read them? Waste of time and money.
I have been to dr holloway many times. .. He is great ... I have had many cysts and bumps cut out and never have a scar..., I love it that he is efficient and proficient... If you want to talk .. Pay for a counselor... If you need a dermatologist see dr holloway... I live in north Okc and can drive to Norman get fixed and out of there instead of waiting two hours in an office....
Worst doctor experience I've ever had. The staff was great, but the doctor was horrible. He came in, told me what he was going to do, then walked out without asking if I even wanted to do it. I spoke with the nurse about other options, and when the doctor came back in, he was clearly angry and ridiculed me for considering other options. Needless to say, I left immediately without any service done. I wrongly assumed he would discuss options with me and also wrongly assumed he would listen when I expressed concerns.
Dr. Holloway is straight and to the point, no nonsense, I have been seeing him over 6 yrs annually. I never wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room and procedures happen quickly. If your looking for a doctor to hold your hand, talk sweet to you and tell you everything YOU want to hear--look elsewhere. I have had no problems with the man even when he is holding a knife. Quick, painless and to the point, I go to him because of his experience with skin cancers, and continue to recommend him to friends and family.
It never ceases to amaze me that there are people who have anything polite or nice to say about this man. I am also amazed that he is even allowed to practice medicine. Getting an appointment is not hard because he is horrible and probably only sees the same people that he has seen for the last 29 years. He is the rudest person I have ever met. He was hateful and refused to answer my questions. He glared at me and told me that he didn't care how I felt. I don't need him to be my BFF, but just being decent would be helpful, however, I don't think there is a decent bone in his body. I told my general physician that I went to him and he apologized and said that if he would have known, he would have never let me go. My friend works at the hospital and said that he is the most complained about doctor they have. It's sad that we should have to suffer this man because he thinks he can treat people so badly. Do yourself a favor and avoid him at all costs!!
