Dr Holy grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas with a degree in history. She is a board-certified Ophthalmologist with fellowship training in diseases and surgery of the retina and vitreous. In 2010, Dr Holy joined Retinal Consultants of Texas.
Dr Holy appreciates the personal interactions with patients and staff, as well as the chance to participate in clinical trials.
“Extremely professional and efficient practice. All three technicians who dealt with me were courteous and knowledgeable, and constantly kept me fully informed about what they were doing. There was minimal waiting time between seeing different technicians. Dr. Holy has a great bedside manner, is a good listener, is obviously very knowledgeable in her field, and technically superb. I can honestly say that this is the best patient experience I've had to date.”E.C.
