Dr. Holt is a family physician who has been in private practice since 1986. She received her Master's Degree in Anthropology, and then her medical degree in 1984 from McMaster University Medical School in Ontario, Canada. In 2006, Dr. Holt focused her practice exclusively on the care of headache patients. Dr. Holt believes that optimal healing of all health concerns depends on empowering patients to make positive health-promoting changes in the areas of sleep, exercise, diet, relaxation and positive mental attitude. Her focus on individualized patient education distinguishes her practice from the care headache patients receive in other primary care and specialty settings. Dr. Holt and her extended family, including 6 grandchildren, live in the San Antonio area.
