Dr. Dennis Holmes este într-adevăr un înger păzitor pentru mine. Am fost diagnosticată acum 5 ani cu cancer la sân și m-am temut de tratamentele invazive și de posibilele complicații. Cu toate acestea, în momentul în care l-am cunoscut pe dr. Holmes am simțit o rază de speranță care mi-a luminat calea către vindecare. Dr. Holmes mi-a prezentat metoda revoluționară a crioablatiei și mi-a explicat cu răbdare și înțelegere toate avantajele acestei tehnici. A fost foarte pregătit, profesionist și empatic, ceea ce mi-a dat încredere că sunt în mâinile potrivite. Crioablatia a fost soluția perfectă pentru mine. Nu numai că a fost o metodă neinvazivă, dar a fost și extrem de eficientă. Dr. Holmes a abordat fiecare pas al tratamentului meu cu atenție și grijă, asigurându-se că am înțeles întotdeauna fiecare etapă a procesului. Cu ajutorul doctorului Holmes și a echipei sale incredibile, am depășit cu succes această provocare și pot spune ca sunt vindecata complet. Recomand cu toată inima pe dr. Holmes oricui se confruntă cu situația similară. Nu doar că este un medic excepțional, dar este și un om minunat care și-a dedicat viața pentru a ajuta oamenii să învingă cancerul și să recâștige sănătatea. Mulțumesc dr. Holmes pentru tot ce ai făcut pentru mine. Ești cu adevărat salvarea mea și nu voi uita niciodată bunătatea și profesionalismul pe care le-ai arătat în timpul tratamentului meu."

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 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.

I wish I could give Dr. Holmes a 10 thousand-star rating! What a brilliant, compassionate physician he is! I flew to CA last year to be treated with cryoablation by Dr. Holmes. My trust and confidence in him are very well placed, and I am feeling great. He truly offers patient-centered care, which distinguishes him from so many other doctors. His assistant Allison is also exceptional in every regard...knowledgeable, responsive, thorough and kind. They gave me an alternative that changed my life, literally...and I am forever grateful! Thank you Dr. Holmes and Allison!

Dr Holmes is one of the most thorough, knowledgeable, professional and caring doctors I've ever met. From the beginning I felt I was in good hands with him. And now a year and a half after my surgery, I'm doing well. But I am able to contact his staff at any time for questions or concerns. He works extremely well with my oncologist, my integrative oncologist, the radiologist and my general doctor. I live in a different state but was able to travel to California for surgery. Dr Holmes is extremely caring and he goes above and beyond! I would recommend him to any woman who has breast cancer. He is the best of the best!

My mom and I want to thank you and your staff for giving us another option to mastectomy and taking such good care of me before, during and after the cryoablation. I am grateful beyond words to be a part of this trail-blazing effort to challenge the boundaries of conventional breast cancer treatments.

I wanted to express my appreciation to you for reviewing my medical file as a possible candidate for cryoablation. Even though I decided to have conventional surgery, the information that you, your staff and website provided was helpful for me to take a confident decision for my treatment. Allison from your staff was knowledgeable and very patient in answering my questions at a time that was emotional and filled with anxiety. Your staff evidently follows your lead in promoting a positive and kind atmosphere for your patients. Thank you for your time.

Hi Dr. Holmes, one year ago today your excellent surgical skills gave me the very best of Christmas presents by sending me home cancer-free at the end of the day! Thank you for saving my life and for the kindness with which you approach your patients in your practice. You made facing one of the most frightening experiences of my life much easier to navigate. I am so grateful that my primary care doctor sent me your way.

I am so glad that I spoke up for myself 2.5 years ago to request you as my breast surgeon. I can’t image what my experience would have been like if you weren’t part of my team. I was so fearful of this whole process. However, your knowledge, thoroughness, and compassion and the time you spent with me to work through the process was invaluable and put my mind at ease. Thanks for always answering all of my questions and addressing any concerns I may have. You are the best Dr. Holmes. Alba, thank you for always returning my phone calls and getting me in emergency or not. Both you and Dr. Holmes make on amazing team!

Dr. Dennis Holmes is an outstanding doctor. He is caring, personable and very easy to talk with. He is extremely knowledgeable and a leader in the field of breast cancer care. After being diagnosed with breast cancer (my right breast, tumor was 2.9 cm) I was told that the standard procedure with my type of cancer was a lumpectomy, radiation and possible chemotherapy with a hormone blocker which to me was devastating. I was under immense stress! Being scarred for life!! A real devastation to your womanhood! Not being able to dress yourself without second thoughts! I researched alternatives on my own and when I found Dr. Dennis Homes I was so grateful! Me and my husband flew all the way from Europe to Los Angeles! He provided a cure for my cancer, cryoablation, that was much more endurable, minimally-invasive and cared about my emotional needs while managing my problem effectively. Also please note that the recurrence rate (if you are so unlucky is 25% same as lumpectomy! So why scar yourself? Dr Holmes is magnificent! He gave me hope that I can get through this! His office staff is the best! Allison, who I interacted with a lot for appointments, questions to the doctor and whatever I needed always responded quickly, efficiently and with such kindness. I & my husband are forever in his debt! My breast did not change!! highly recommend Dr. Holmes and will be forever thankful for him and his staff! Right now my breast is healing on the inside. Please note that on the outside no difference. You can not see marks,scars, points nothing! Reason I take the effort to publish my experience is that before I came to Los Angeles, I perused the reviews a lot since I felt so desperate and uncertain and everywhere doctors still proclaim lumpectomy as golden standard. Which is not true. Cryo if feasible for you does same, kills the tumor (s), however without detrimental disfigurement. The reviews for cryo really helped me in my decision making. So I hope to help others. Right now I am healing really you can not see anything different about my breast :) The procedure itself was really doable. After they procedure only 1 evening resting and next day I resumed my activities!! I truly am so grateful!! I managed to keep my breast with absolutely no outer changes:) No downtime nothing. Do not hesitate! if dr Holmes considers you a candidate for cryo, and if you want it yourself also, do not hesitate for a moment:) If I could do the process over again, I would not doubt and book the first flight from Europe to Los Angeles again!! Hugs and Kisses and a very great thanks!!
