I did contact Dr.Hollins regarding a problem I was having with my left arm. He took care of everything right away.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience with this Provider was good. He's a fantastic Doctor. I did however advise him that another reason I was there was because of some continuous pain in my upper left shoulder. He didn't respond about taking xrays or anything. I did however mention that I had swelling around my ankles, he checked them out briefly and advised me that he would prescribe a water pill.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Edwin Hollins is a knowledgeable,professional with a great bedsidemanner. He is attentive to my concerns re. my health issues and offers suggestions to help me improve my chronic illnesses.I appreciate his recent referral to the Case Manager due to my ongoingdifficulty with paying for rxsdue to being in the Medicare donut hole.I am pleased to have a doctor with Dr. Hollins expertise, caring and sensitivity.

September 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Edwin Holland was assigned my case after my physician left. This was our first meeting and he was very professional and courteous.

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

The visit with Dr. Hollins was insulting, unacceptable, unprofessional, insulting, with me being seen an hour late as my appt. was at 2:30 pm but was not seen until 3:30 pm. Upon entering the room Dr. Hollin's introduced a gentleman who was taking notes an i am still not sure why someone is taking notes each visit I have with him. After inquiring with Dr Holiins why am i being seen an later than my original appt. he starts to state teh front desk books him every 30 minutes and he has spoken with them and it should be resolved. I responded with well Dr. Hollin's I came to take my physical and I was stating that this was a waste of my time as my appointment was for 2:30 pm and I had other task to complete at which time he started raising his voice to a level that was unacceptable and loud stating I told you the front desk situation. I interrupted this unprovoked verbal attack and stated to him "do not take your anger/frustration out on me. We continued going back and forth until I picked up my personal items and walked out to the sound of Dr. Hollins saying BYE in a matter of fact, rude, unprofessional tone which was insulting,disrespectful. This entire situation was uncalled for as no patient should have to endure this type of a service and berating by a doctor. Now on top of all of this my blood pressure was high when the nurse checked before Dr. Ho;;ins walked in and due to the terrible service I left and suffered head aches x 2 days. Additionally, I had surgery in 3/2019 and needed to discuss m,y recovery with a Dr.,. I did get my blood work done with the help of X RN, MSN/ADN who was fantastic unfortunately when I received my results there was issue with one of the blood test line items which was high and due to this episode had no doctor to discuss it with as I do not feel Dr Hollin's is capable of taken care of my healthcare needs moving forward.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

very good

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Hollins was Very professional and helpful and I was very comfortable with him

March 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Provider not attentive enough. Visits rushed.. Have to ask for referrals, routine check-ups, medication changes. etc. Not assertive.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Last year l was recommended to Dr. Hollins by the Advocate Group when I was looking to change my Primary Care Physician. Consequently, his office was not only closer to my home , but his demeanor is professional and knowledgeable.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I am not pleased with the care I am receiving from this provider I'm considering seeing a doctor that knows more about diabetes. After 2 years I still have no medication from my condition.

February 22, 2019 6:00 PM

I was kind of disappointed about wait time for checking in and to get Labs drawn.

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

my experience was pleasant as always, with a good report.

February 9, 2019 6:00 PM

I've had other doctors before with poor beside manners and I was not satisfied with their service, until I learned of Dr. Hollins. My visits have been very satisfying. Happy to have him as my doctor.

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM


January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

wait for blood test was way too long, only 1 tech. in lab.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

It was pleasant and informative.

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

As a patient my experience was very good in as well as to be expected

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Edwin E. Hollins is by far the best internist who has ever treated me. He is also a fine and well rounded gentleman. I always look forward to visiting him in South Holland. Hollins is extraordinarily spirited and fun.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Good visit. Appeared dr was genuinely concerned about my medical needs

January 16, 2019 6:00 PM

Thank you for getting me the medical help I needed; medical equipment, parking placard and assigning an advocate to see that these issues including Dr.appts are addressed.

November 11, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Hollins seems to be very passive about my health and I think it was because of my insurance. I should be treated like a patient with non Medicaid. He shouldn't judge the book by its cover. I have Meridian Health and since I've obtained this insurance I have been treated differently. When I had BCBS through my husband job I was treated like a real patient should be treated. I have never been on Medicaid. This is my first time. My husband was in a very bad motorcycle accident in which he was hit from the back and thrown at least 30 feet in the air and not only that, he had to rollover and over to safety to keep other cars from hitting him. To make a long story short, my husband and I have always had great jobs and great insurance but before his accident he was laid off two weeks prior and etc...... therefore we fell on hard times . My husband is still recovering from his accident. He is presently disabled. Please do not judge me because I do not have good insurance. Please have that doctor treat everyone one regardless of their insurance with respect . I am still having the same issue and I can't wait to see my doctor who truly care about patients. When I left Dr. Hollins office I was hurt and in tears. Thank you!

November 9, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Hollins is always there when I have questions and responds through phone and the portal. His MA is fantastic!

November 4, 2018 6:00 PM

I've been a patient of Dr. Hollins for about 8+ years, and it has been a great experience. However, I'm beginning to look into ways to treat my diabetes and high blood pressure besides just taking the same medication over and over. The process seems routine to me.

November 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr.hollins is a very nice doctor.
