"Dr. Hollander has been a Big Island physician in both clinic and ER settings since 2005. While traditionally trained in Western medicine, he prefers an emphasis on healthful lifestyles and evidence-based prevention of illness, approaching the source of chronic medical problems rather than simply treating the symptoms, and recommending the least invasive treatment options in times of acute need. Dr. Hollander graduated from Princeton University in 1991, and attended the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine from 1998-2002, before completing his residency at the Santa Rosa (CA) Family Medicine Residency Program in 2005. He is fortunate enough to be married to Dr. Suber and share the parenting of their two daughters; on a day off, he likes to be near the water, hiking through Hawaii’s native forests, or tending their land."
"Dr. Hollander and Dr. Suber transformed their practice in the summer of 2016. The new Iris Integrative Health is a place where patient and physician are free to make their own choices around health and medical treatment, clear of the influence of mid-level administrators and insurance companies. After years of practicing typical “fee for service” medicine, they shifted to a new model: direct primary care. Patients pay a regular membership fee directly to their doctors — a system which enables physicians to focus on providing the best possible care, and patients to be active partners in their health. Naturopathic medicine alongside conventional, prompt access to physicians who can take all the time that is needed with their patients, all within a system that embraces technology while emphasizing the importance of a personal, long-term relationship between patient and doctor."
