Board Certification:


“I chose pediatric medicine as a career at the very end of my medical training. It wasn’t until my last rotation in medical school that it became clear that pediatrics was a perfect fit for me. When treating patients, I try to take the whole picture into account: family, social issues, school, environment, etc. This helps to provide a clear understanding and direction for the medical advice I provide to my patients and their families. I thoroughly enjoy the diversity of the patients that I serve and getting to know each family with their own unique background and history.”

Dr. Holdner supports vaccinations for all children. Her patients should anticipate that vaccinations will be discussed at all well child examinations and vaccinations will be offered at all appointments to children who are due for vaccines. Dr. Holdner promotes and follows the CDC’s (Center for Disease Control) immunization schedule.
