Ratings for Dr. Timothy A. Holt
Went to this man for simple vertebrate dislocations. Was told I had bone degeneration of vertebrates. Of course there was no degeneration . And because of dislocations and said degeneration surgery was my only option. First botched surgery was a cage from tailbone to vertebratesee. In witch case i was told that cage and screws are made of Titanium and strong. Screws broke in least than three weeks. On top of that got staff infection. Went to five appointments in one month nurse told me nothings wrong cleaned wound sight and dressed and sent me on my way. Went to a sixth appointment a few days later and saw Dr.Holt and his surgical assistant and I suddenly have a staff infection. Went in to get cage removed but wound up with bleeding from stomach due to medicatins. Took six months to figure this out. And of course had to have cage removed and since it could not be replaced Dr.Holt said he would have to go through my stomach and insert bone dowels between the vertebrae
Dr. Holt performed an emergency spine fusion on my 19 year old daughter after she was in a vehicle roll over accident on her way to Gulf Shores from Nashville to a family gathering. She fractured her T12 and exploded (lack of a better word) her L1. She was given a 100% chance of being paralyzed if she did not receive this surgery. Dr. Holt saved my daughter way of live by given her the 6 rack spine fusion. We are grateful that Dr. Holt was the surgeon. His bedside manor with not just my daughter but my family was exactly what we needed to get through this difficult time. His follow-up as well as his Nurse Stephanie as been remarkable. We have to drive all the way from Nashville to Alabama for her follow-up and they are so accommodating. I think he is amazing and wish we had more Doctors like him here in Nashville.
I had three lumbar surgeries and have never regretted them. If you do exactly what you are supposed to do, there will be no problem. I never had pain afterwards. I always have my questions written down and he answers them thoroughly. Also, I do my research. As far as the staff, I treat them as individuals and most are extremely busy; not to mention the patients they have to put up with. I do agree that Jennifer could be a little friendlier, but that is just her personality. I just overcome it.
Dr is very cut happy. Run. Run fast!!! They went thru my stomach NOT to have nerve damage.... I have more damage now and have not been able to return to work and probably won't ever be able too.... after 6 months of nerve problems I was told he wanted right do more surgery. My feet aredifferent colors and different temperatures.... always had to wait for long periods in a very small waiting area...if you have any back problems PLEASE go see Dr Patrick Ryan and NOT Dr cut happy!!!
Dr Holt is great, he listened to me, reviewed my case gave me different options, told me about my surgery, the entire process, however Jennifer his obnoxious treasure troll of a front office staff was rude, very rude. I was told to come in the next day for PreOp. I was on time, I sat in the waiting room for 35 minutes, in alot of pain since I can't sit for long periods of time or stand or walk etc. I asked her when she would get to me, she very abrubtly told me FIVE minutes, there was NO ONE else in the office, she was in the back on the phone! 10 minutes later while I'm pacing back and forth and in tears from the pain she calls me to the window hands me ONE piece of paper to sign then sends me on my way. I could have killed that little troll. He needs to get rid of her! PERIOD!!! She was rude my first visit rude my second visit and rude on the phone, she can't even smile. Doc-do your patients a favor, hire a friendly staff and get rid of the rude ones.
Excellent Dr, poor offices really small & crowded, lots of noise in waiting room & throughout, staff becomes to concerned over minor values (Sugar in Urine (I'M NOT A DIABETIC) would stop a operation dead even after having given blood, did MRI's & X-Rays, In Attendance Day Scheduled For Surgery In Hospital, & have been fitted for a Back Brace), Staff is negligent 100\% to postpone past date which 2 units of blood will expire so I will seek legal services to file a case against them with Medicaid. I have already had a successful operation to remove a spinal disc in my neck, this 'Sugar' occurred as a result of having drank Hummingbird Food & eating lots of candy, it isn't everyday I make a mistake thinking I am drinking Kool Aid & it wasn't. If I had diabetes, my Retina Eye Dr. Massey would have told me & so asked him resulting in him telling me I have Histoplasmosis in my left eye, that got there from a exploding Golf Ball in my face & up my nose when I was a kid, he told me No I Don't.
