Lori was patient, understanding, and very informative. She remained a professional relationship along with being able to relate and make us feel cared for and about. She didn't just brush us off and feel that "the doctor knew best". She listened, analyzed, and cared about my sons health getting better. She took her time and over ceded my expectation and gave us extra care and concern in other areas of his health that doctors beforehand have given up or not cared to solve.
Lori is wonderful! She is respectful, caring and always takes her time to listen to us. She always knows my daughter's history and takes that into consideration. She is professional and extremely approachable. My daughter loves her and we wouldn't want to see anyone else!
dr. Holt is my kids pulmonologist and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone she is amazing
Provider was very apologetic for running behind. We don't mind the wait because we know she will spend the time needed with a patient as she does with us. She is very caring and precise.
I would have liked more of a steady plan going forward. there was a lot of well try this or that. in one aspect that is good, but it leaves open to too much chance that she could get another exacerbation.
Lori is kind and loving. She wants the best for her patients and makes sure she is attentive when the patient is discussing their concerns.

we adore dr holt
Lori Holt is a caring and thoughtful healthcare provider. I always feel as thought she has my child's best interest at heart. She listens and takes time to make a true assessment about my child's healthcare issues. In addition she speaks directly to my child so my child is learning to discuss her health concerns and communicate effectively with health care providers.
wonderful. I like her very much
The only bad thing with this visit was the wait time that we were in the waiting room, but the office has a lot of things for kids to do and look at which is nice.
I never got to see the provider. I was kept waiting for 90 minutes until I left. It took months to even get this appointment, and we wasted an entire afternoon without even seeing the specialist we were promised to have seen after my son's second hospital stay in February.
We love Lori Holt! We've seen countless providers in these two short years and she's by far one of our favorites! We always look forward to seeing her!!
Lori Holt takes her time with us as parents as well as our child, the patient, to make sure we all feel our questions and concerns are asked. Her knowledge is impressive and we always walk away feeling very cared for and that we have all the tools and information we need.
always receive great care from Lori holt!
I love Lori Holt... I wish she was his regular primary Dr!!
Lori is very easy to talk to. She listens to all of our concerns. She is very genuine which reassures me that she is providing the best care for my daughter.
Today was the first visit with Lori Holt. Previously my daughter saw Dr. Spahr, Lori Holt will serve as my daughter's new provider. Lori was extremely thorough and thoughtful during the visit. Lori was very familiar with my daughter's case. She was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. My daughter and I actually enjoyed going to the doctor, as is usually most people may view the doctor as an unpleasant experience. We had a great time!
very thorough. asked me a lot of questions to get a good history.
