Great visit.
November 16, 2021
This provider is on time and knows what he's talking about. I've never had to wait for long periods of time to be seen. I wish I could say that about all PIH providers.
November 08, 2021
He is efficient, friendly and courteous. He is very knowledgeable.
November 04, 2021
My Doctor is the best.
November 04, 2021
Dr. Holmes I highly recommend to all.
November 04, 2021
The doctor was very unprofessional in regards to my refusing the Covid vaccine. He went on to lecture me about how I won't be "free" for not wanting to get a simple shot. Then he walked out of the room.
October 29, 2021
Dr. Randolph Holmes is a compassionate, caring man. We can go to him with any problem and there is a solution, no judgment. He is down to earth, with no panic, no judgment; he walks you through everything in simple terms. Not many doctors like Dr. Holmes.

Great doctors and caring nurses. Quick service also
October 04, 2021
Dr.Holmes needs to spend more time with his patients. I saw him for 3 or 7 minutes and he was gone. This needs to be corrected. Have a nice day.

September 16, 2021
Discussed things I was feeling but documents underplayed what I was feeling and had very minimum of symptoms I have been feeling from injury.
September 16, 2021
Love Dr. Holmes and his staff; always made to feel safe and important. Here I am a "person" not a "number". I feel like I have a personal relationship here and feel free to discuss any medical problem I may be having.
September 15, 2021
As always, I was seen in a timely manner and received the health info I needed
September 13, 2021
Short in and out.

September 09, 2021
I just want to say the Dr. Holmes has been my physician for probably close to 40 years. So he's a wonderful man. I, you know, I really would not ever want to see anybody else. So I hope he doesn't ever retire. Thank you.
September 09, 2021
It is so nice to have appointment and that the doctor is on time and I was in and out in about 30 minutes.
August 30, 2021
I was very pleased and grateful that I was able to see Dr. Holmes and got taken care of.
August 30, 2021
Dr. Holmes was great
August 24, 2021
I don't feel that all of my concerns where listened to and addressed. Some things were addressed but overall I felt like i was rushed out of there as quick as possible.
August 23, 2021
Dr Holmes & his assistant are great!
August 13, 2021
Well-organized, professional and courteous.
August 12, 2021
This was the first time I seen Dr. Holmes as my doctor of choice was unable to see me. He was pleasant and new exactly what was wrong and explained the time and symptoms I would likely have. I would have no problems seeing Dr. Holmes in the future
August 12, 2021
Always receive the best of care and advice.
August 11, 2021
It was my first time at your office and couldn't of had a better experience. Thankyou to all !
August 05, 2021
The reason I wouldn't recommend this office is that the doctors keep leaving. It is a revolving door. This makes me think that PIH is a toxic place to work. Why can't an office keep a doctor? I can understand one or two doctors leaving every now and then, but every 6 months or so I get a notice that my primary care physician has left PIH.
August 04, 2021
Great service
July 20, 2021
Great Office wonderful Staff
July 19, 2021
Always a pleasant visit!
July 16, 2021
Didn't listen at all. Total lack of empathy. This old horse needs to be put out to pasture. Surely retirement must be on the horizon? I won't be seeing this doctor ever again.
July 14, 2021
I felt I was rushed for this visit. Dr. was in a hurry to see an unscheduled person.
July 14, 2021
Great Dr been going to him for years.
July 14, 2021
Dr. Holmes has been my doctor for many years, and I have always appreciated his amiable, patient personality during my visits. He listens, answers my questions, and provides advice pertaining to my meeical issues. I rarely feel rushed through an appointment.
July 12, 2021
I wanted to ask a few questions about some other health concerns I had, but was told by Dr. Holmes he only had time for one quick question. I understand there is a time frame for each appointment, but I thought his response was rather curt. I guess I will have to reschedule.
July 08, 2021
I just wish there was a little more bed side manner to the nurse that checked us in. It's obviously she didn't want to be there, you didn't get a warm welcome from her. My mother and I who my mother was there to be supportive of my needs. Thank you.
July 08, 2021
Dr Holmes put me at ease to not worry, that it's not a serious condition
July 07, 2021
Dr. Holmes, this is very attentive. He listen to my concerns and he was able to make a diagnostic diagnosis for me. So I was very happy with the visit
July 07, 2021
Dr Holmes and his nurse were so understanding and remembered who I was and wear genuinely concerned for my well being.. Both individuals have a wonderful bedside manner
July 02, 2021
My Granddaughter is the 3rd generation to be a patient of Dr. Holmes. I wouldn't trade him or his staff for anything. It will be a sad day when he decides to retire.
July 01, 2021
Everyone was very professional and nice.
June 25, 2021
Hello. Yes, I'd like to say that my doctor's appointment was very well organized. I did a video telephone call, and the doctor was able to meet my needs, and spend the time with me that was needed in order for me to get better. Thank you.
June 18, 2021
Dr Holmes and his staff are great and I feel like they know me and my family! I have confidence in my health care team.
June 18, 2021
Great service!! Wish more doctors were like Dr.Holmes. He is there to help
June 10, 2021
Very comfortable settings.
June 09, 2021
I work at PIH and my coworker was tested positive for COVID. I became sick three days after my exposure. I am vaccinated and understand that the chances of me getting COVID are not as high as someone who is not. This provider told me COVID is not a problem anymore and that he is not doing swabs because COVID is gone! Really how is this professional or true? If COVID was not a concern then how did my coworker get COVID?
June 07, 2021
Very caring and professional.
June 04, 2021
I would have done the survey online, but the link that you guys sent me didn't work. So would have been much easier for me to do it online, then do it over the phone.
June 03, 2021
I was given answers to many of my health questions, along with a couple of prescriptions to try.
May 27, 2021
Always pleasant, polite & engaging!
May 25, 2021
Best experience, more than I could hope for

April 19, 2021
He is the best doctor.
April 12, 2021
We have total trust in the good doctor.
April 02, 2021
Doctor Holmes was not courteous and did not seem to care about what I had to say nor did he seem to care about my condition. The urgent care doctor helped me out prior to seeing Dr. Holmes and told me Physical therapy would help my condition. Dr. Holmes however said it's useless. I did a lot of research and found out that physical therapy does help. Dr. Holmes didn't want to run any more tests or X-rays to follow up with my condition. The Dr. at urgent care I saw prior also recommended I get testing done to make sure my condition isn't the cause of something worse.
April 02, 2021
I feel so much better today with the medication. Thank you
April 01, 2021
Yes, this is the first time I've seen Dr. Holmes, and it was because I needed to get in that day and couldn't see my provider. He was wonderful. I loved his personality. He was very comforting to see just a really good guy. So I would recommend him to anybody. Thank you.
March 26, 2021
I have trusted Dr Holmes with my life, and care for 38 years of my life. I have complete faith in him, and I know one day he will have to retire, and I am not looking forward to that day. I look forward to my appointments because I always learn something new from him, and it's not always just about medicine.
March 25, 2021
Dr. Holmes has been my primary doctor for over 25 years because he's a great provider who takes time to explain things to you. In addition, he provides treatment options while listening to your concerns. Always a pleasant doctor visit with Dr. Holmes, nurses and administrative support staff.
March 24, 2021

March 03, 2021
Randy's always personable. He is the best health care provider I've ever had. Suboxone has saved my life and I love Randy and I love coming to that place and he is the best doctor and best staff ever. Thank you so much for helping me through the rough time in my life. Thank you, Randy.

This was a Tele-Medicine visit. I look forward to the time when I can be seen personally by my provider.
February 19, 2021
I found out that we will not be able to get our blood drawn in the local lab, because they don't have a contract with my provider. I wish that could be corrected.
February 18, 2021
Good bond with Dr. Holmes. He understands my experience about my heart problem plus others.
February 18, 2021
I am still his favorite patient, ok, I pretend I am, but he always remembers me and is always concerned with changes to my health and career.
February 18, 2021
I always feel comfortable and safe. Dr Holmes listens to my concerns and spends more time than most physicians tending to my health concerns and questions, would not trade him for any other doctor
February 17, 2021
dr.Holmes is an amazing man. And he's the best doctor I've ever had. I gave him a 10 star out of 10 Stars. Yeah, I recommend him to all my friends and family members and and if they don't have his insurance actually just they gave his insurance has he's an amazing man.
February 16, 2021
After talking to Dr. Randolph. I felt very encouraged about my health situation, and he was encouraging and gave me some good advice.
February 16, 2021
I have been pleased & grateful for PIH with one unfortunate exception- PLEASE make phone-contact available to us. I needed anti-seizure pills (you know the alternative) and regardless of patience was unable to get ANY help. Please.

January 20, 2021
Dr. Holmes is an excellent physician.
January 14, 2021
The doctor needs to listen more to his patients, what they're telling him. Other than that the staff is wonderful. You just need some people skills. I am not happy with him.
January 11, 2021
Always courteous, and well explained appointments, feeling very confident.
January 08, 2021
Always a positive experience with Dr. Holmes and his staff. That's why I have been going there for 30+ years along with my family.

I felt that Dr. Holmes was extremely rushed and stressed because I've been patient of his so many years I recognize that. Actually I don't really know what else to say.
January 07, 2021
Dr Holmes is the best!! Great doctor!!
