Care team with Lindsay Ostergaard, MSN, AGNP-C.


Patients Say:

“Dr. Holtzmuller was extremely helpful! Very good visit. Very thorough, and he asked a lot of questions.”

Dr. Holtzmuller Says:

“I am a specialist in gastroenterology and liver disease, and began practicing in Charlotte in 2004 after a 23-year career as a physician in the United States Army, retiring at the rank of Colonel. During my last three years in the service, I served as gastroenterology consultant to the Army Surgeon General. I am board certified in gastroenterology and have additional certification in liver transplant hepatology. Overall, I could possibly be considered a boring person because I am constantly working, but I am lucky to be so passionate about what I do.”
