"I try to treat every patient like they are my own family member. That is how I practice my medicine."
Dr. Holland is a comprehensive ophthalmologist and the pediatric specialist at the Stark EHNW site. He treats children and adults. Because of his special interest in pediatrics, Dr. Holland sought additional education and training through a Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus. As a pediatric ophthalmology fellow, Dr. Holland performed significant and award-winning research in pediatric cataract surgery and retinopathy of premature infants.
Dr. Holland especially enjoys performing cataract surgery and addressing the refractive challenges that come with it. He has performed literally thousands of cataract surgeries since he began his career as an eye surgeon in 1994. Dr. Holland has an extremely low complication rate and performs a very efficient and safe surgical procedure for removing cataracts. Dr. Holland has taken on some of the most difficult cases with excellent results.
Dr. Holland grew up in Texas and studied electrical engineering as an undergraduate. After working for one year in the field, he decided that he needed to do something more people- oriented. He chose ophthalmology because it offered an ideal balance for him-- combining technical aspects with patient relationships.
Dr. Holland considers his patients new and old friends. The way you are successful in life is by building relationships with people and connecting with them. People are what matter. Dr. Holland is very approachable and can easily strike up conversation on a wide-range of topics with his patients-young and old. Being a father of seven has given him more than enough practice developing his patience and rapport with children. As a result, he has an excellent connection with his pediatric and adult patients because he is gentle, playful and down to earth.
Family is the focal point for Dr. Holland, and his wife, Heather. Heather stays home to school the children with the help of a home-school cooperative. When they want to play, the children have five wonderful acres to roam and explore. When the home requires maintenance or renovation, Dr. Holland likes putting his engineering and creative skills to work-a recent undertaking was constructing a pool deck.
Staying active is very important in this family, and they are passionate about sports: soccer, baseball, football and basketball. Most of the children play a sport, and Dr. Holland has coached many of their teams. The family also enjoys spending time in Sunriver where they can bike, golf, canoe and ski.
Church-life is central to the family as well, and Dr. Holland serves on his church's governing board.
