About Dr. Holden

Dr. David Holden was born and raised in Oklahoma City. He is an avid Blue Devil fan, as a result of his undergraduate studies at Duke University.

 

A history buff, Dr. Holden once considered being an architect, since he enjoyed drawing and working with his hands. However, the time spent listening to the stories of his father, who was a Navy Corpsman (and later a local veterinarian), who shared his experiences caring for injured soldiers, ultimately swayed him to look at a career in medicine.

 

Over the past 32 years, Dr. Holden has cared for many gymnasts. He has provided care for many club teams in the area, University of Oklahoma gymnastics, and Olympic gymnasts, such as Oklahoma native Shannon Miller.
