Provider Bio down arrow

Supporting families is a big part of Dr. David Holz’s pediatrics practice because he understands childhood health conditions can affect the whole family.

“I want to make it a holistic experience for the entire family by identifying other support systems they could use and any barriers they have to getting support,” he said.

Dr. Holz also tries to make visits to the doctor less stressful and scary for kids by teaching them new things about health and how to take care of themselves.

“Though the entire office visit may not always be fun, certain parts of it certainly can be,” he said.

Experiencing medical issues as a child and having children of his own have made it easy for Dr. Holz to connect with his patients and their families. He enjoys working with young patients who have a positive outlook on life, and he has a special interest in heart and kidney disorders.

Dr. Holz earned his medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine and completed his pediatrics residency at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in 2015.

When he’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Holz enjoys spending time with his wife and three boys, playing tennis, flying RC planes, and embracing his love for all things Star Wars.

Our PCP is leaving so this was the first visit we had with Dr. Holz and he by far met expectations. I am thrilled to have him replace our previous PCP who is leaving, which I felt nervous about. Furt...view full comment
