Dr. Nathan Holman wanted to become a doctor because he is fascinated by the workings of the human body and because he enjoys helping others. “I love interacting with my patients, getting to know them on a personal level, and doing my best to help them feel better,” he says.
For him, the best moments are those in which he’s felt he’s made a real difference. “I had a patient recently who told me that I caught his cancer early to the point he was able to be treated and cured, and his gratitude made all the years of training and hard work worth it,” Dr. Holman says. “It was truly one of the most gratifying experiences I think I could ever have as a physician.”
Conscientious, helpful, pleasant and proficient, Dr. Holman’s clinical interests include general gastroenterology and hepatology, inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer prevention, and nutrition.
Dr. Holman has volunteered in PODEMOS medical brigades, which provides lasting care to underserved communities in Honduras. The group was founded by a fellow student at The Ohio State College of Medicine.
When he’s not working, Dr. Holman enjoys traveling, running, watching movies, and cooking. He also likes drone nature photography and Pacific Northwest hiking.
