I find " good " & "doctor" in the same sentence to be an oxymoron.

It's about profit,not healing in the world of AMA certificate holders( for the 99%)... and especially HMG minions.

seek elsewhere, would be my advice

Dr Holt is an excellent Dr but he's a general surgeon. If you are looking for primary care/ family medicine, I would go with Dr Poortenga or Dr Metcalf / Dr Hicks. They are on Ravine St. Other good ones in Kingsport are Dr J Brazee, Dr Carroll, Dr Amylynn Crawford, or Dr Louthan.

Sorry, didn't realize you were looking for pain management. PCP's rarely do pain management anymore because it is a high risk specialty. Look at Kingsport Pain Management but for your sake make sure the cause has been looked well into first. Your not helping yourself if the pain is treated but not the cause.

I agree with finding the cause. However due to the drug abuse in this area chronic pain management is non-existent. Primary doctors won't touch chronic pain patients. Kingsport Pain management will try some treatments like spinal shots that may or may not help after 5-6 months for a price (I emphasis the word try). This list of primary doctors above are good from what I've heard and if lucky, a surgical procedure will cure the problem. If surgery doesn't work....plan on moving as you'll be out in the cold!
