Dr. Phillip Holmes grew up on a small plot of land in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was looking for an occupation that would allow him to continue to learn new things while working with a variety of people and found that healthcare offered that. Family Medicine allows him the diversity of age and diagnosis while offering a venue to maintain surgical skills. When away from his job, Dr. Holmes enjoys life with his wife, Danita, and their seven children. He likes fishing, sports, singing, working with youth, biblical studies, family vacations involving elements of history, and playing with his children.
