“For years, my wife and I have enjoyed coming to the Hocking Hills area to hike and stay in some of the cabins. Recently, I contacted the hospital to see if there was any interest in bringing another orthopedic surgeon to the area. I have now joined Dr. Kauffman in providing orthopedic surgery services to the community,” Dr. Holt said. “I am happy to be in Logan and look forward to meeting new patients.”
