I have been reluctant to write a review on Dr. Dennis R. Holmes because I knew I would run out of adjectives.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of November. I had gone for thermography at Safe Body Imaging and was lucky, so lucky, to meet Julie Steele. It was the results from that test that made me ask my internist for an ultrasound. I was floored by the results.
Julie came to my rescue. She told me about Dr Holmes and cryoablation. Who ever heard of cryoablation? Even doctors don't know about this amazing technique.
I called and spoke to Allison. Don't forget that name because she will be a big help if you decide to do the procedure. A conference call was set up between Dr Holmes, my daughter (an 8 year oncology nurse and now a Nurse Practitioner ) and myself. Dr Holmes has such a gentle nature, patience for a whole myriad of questions and he was able to calm my fears and hesitation. A few minutes after the call ended, my daughter called to say that, in her opinion., Dr Holmes was the best surgeon anyone could have and she totally supported.my decision.
The following week I went to California. Even though I had complete trust and faith in Dr Holmes, I was still anxious.The morning of the procedure , I was put into position and promptly fell asleep. An hour later, I awoke and was shocked that everything was finished after Dr Holmes told me all that had transpired.. If I lived in California, I would have been sent home. Instead I was so hungry that I went to lunch, Since I live out of State, Dr Holmes wanted to see me the next day..
I can tell you that I had no side effects. No pain, no discomfort. It is not like surgery. No cutting, no scars etc. Everything looks the same. If you could feel your cancer before, you won't feel it now.
You will bless this man for his talent, his humility and his humanity. There is no ego that gets in the way. This will be the best thing you will ever do for yourself with the best surgeon. Don't hesitate.
