About Dr. Holden

Dr. David Holden understands the value of communication and the importance of presenting options to patients when discussing improvement of their health and well-being. He wants patients to know, not every problem is solvable, but if the course of action is focused on the advancement of quality of life, it will help achieve a successful outcome. Dr. Holden believes good communication of goals prior to treatment is essential in the physician-patient relationship. He learned the value of connecting with patients from his father, who was a popular veterinarian and former Navy Corpsman during the war. Dr. Holden was born and raised in Oklahoma City, attended school locally until his academic and athletic success took him to Duke University, where he was a three-year letterman in Track & Field. For more than 30 years, he has worked with the University of Oklahoma Gymnastic Team, a multitude of Olympic Gymnasts and fellow Oklahoma native and Olympic Champion, Shannon Miller. He served as USA Team Physician at the 2000 Paralympics in Sydney, Australia. Dr. Holden is current Vice-President and has served as President of the Oklahoma County Medical Society. He is an active historian and loves spending time with his wife, kids and grandchildren.
