I highly recommend Dr Holden. He performed my CABG surgery 2 years ago, with a triple bypass. He was kind, professional & caring. His office team & PA were very supportive. Dr Holden is an excellent Cardiac surgeon. I thank God for his expertise in repairing my heart. Feeling great, walking 3 miles a day, back to practicing yoga & playing tennis!
