About Kristen Elizabeth Holtz, DO

Dr. Holtz returned to her home state of Virginia after spending nearly a decade in the Atlanta area, where she earned both her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine and master’s degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Suwanee, Georgia campus. She completed her family medicine residency at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon, Virginia, and is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

During medical school rotations, she was drawn to family medicine for both the opportunity to create lasting relationships with patients and the challenge of staying up-to-date on numerous aspects of treatment. She looks forward to cultivating meaningful relationships and open dialogues with her patients.

While she treats various conditions and patient populations, she has a special interest in women’s health and provides birth control counseling, pap smears, mammograms, preventative care and menopause guidance. Her other specialties include various musculoskeletal conditions and joint injections for chronic pain.

Originally from Alexandria, Dr. Holtz attended high school in the Virginia Beach area and spent her undergraduate years in Newport News (at Christopher Newport University). She is excited to be “back home,” where she and her family enjoy exploring the area’s waterways, admiring the foliage and one-of-a-kind views and quick weekend trips to the beach or mountains. She is married with two daughters.
