Gifford Health Care has hired the general-surgery team of Dawn Holman, MD, and her husband, Aleksandr Sokolovsky, DO, who have spent the past 20 years working together in private practice. The pair met in the 1990s while Sokolovsky was attending the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and Holman was a resident. They married in 2001 and started their practice shortly thereafter.

“We know each other on multiple levels, which makes for an easy work environment,” Sokolovsky said.

“When we’re working, we understand how the other person thinks,” Holman added. “We’re each other's best assistant.”

Holman's specialty is breast surgery, which includes biopsies and special reconstructive techniques. Sokolovsky specializes in laparoscopic hernia surgery, which is minimally invasive.
