I went to Dr. Holvick for 12 years and was always treated with respect and kindness. He did an excellent job on my bunion surgery on my right foot. I work in the medical field and know how difficult it is to manage a private practice and try to keep people happy when their insurance doesn't pay and you have to collect money from them. The office I worked in referred patients to him for 12 years and everyone liked him and the podiatry care he gave to our patients was better than most others in the area, hands down.
I only wish I had him operate on my left bunion before he sold his practice and got out of it. The new doctors are money hungry as are most today with all the new insurance regulations coming.
Some people complain about everything, as I see in our office.
Dr. Holvick was 5 stars in my book.

I went to Piedmont Podiatry to get fitted for orthotics. Dr. Patel, and the receptionist, Michael, are both very nice. However, for all 3 visits I waited longer in their waiting room than any other clinic or office I've been to. Also, the process for getting reimbursed for my orthotics (through my insurance company) was a pain. I had to call Piedmont Podiatry several times to check on the status of my reimbursement. I know part of that is the fault of my insurance company, but once I confirmed that my insurance company had approved my orthotics (and being told by Piedmont Podiatry that my check was in the mail), I had to call back a month after not receiving it. I finally received my money, but I wasted a lot of my time in their waiting room and making phone calls; I'll probably go somewhere else if I need this type of service in the future.

Why isn't negative 5 stars an option???

I called and made an appointment, told the receptionist exactly what I needed (inserts because mine were 4 years old) and what insurance company I had. Went in for the appointment, sat 45 minutes in a frigid little room waiting for the "doctor" who came in and immediately gave me a song and dance about how expensive the inserts are (I know this) and that they may or may not be able to do them there depending on what the insurance company would or would not pay. So I could put my shoes back on (he never even examined my feet at all) and his receptionist would call me later in the day to let me know what if anything the insurance company would pay and then I could come back again! Given that I was assured that yes they did take my insurance (duh, I asked that when I called) you'd think they would already know this.

So for 5 minutes of his time, my insurance company will be billed $150, I had a $15 co-pay, and had to pay the thieves downstairs $3 for "valet parking".

Avoid like the plague, unless you just like giving your and your insurance company's money away. It's because of doctors like THIS is the reason that our insurance goes up EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR.

Great job Dr. Holvick! You're a credit to the medical profession.

Pros: None

Cons: Parking, wait time, non-service (multiple visits planned right off the bat obviously)

Dr. Holvick fitted me for orthotics which enabled me to complete the Atlanta Breast Cancer 3-Day walk which is a 60-mile walk over a three-day period. I"m not sure that I could have made it without his help!

His staff is THE BEST! I am always seen on time, treated courteously and with respect. His office has a very friendly atmosphere and I feel that each person in the office is genuinely interested in me as a person, not just a patient.

I have recommended several of my co-workers to him, and they have all been pleased with his care.

Cons: None that I can tell you about!

Dr. Holvick was rather brisk with me, "diagnosed" my issue in a few seconds, and after his suggestion of orthotics for $400 and physical therapy for 4 weeks didn't offer any relief, threw up his hands and said he didn't know what else to do and sent me back to my primary care doctor. (The problem was numb toes in both feet and pain when walking on balls of both feet.) I will say he *did* give me a full refind on the orthotics, and I didn't have to ask for it.
