“‘To whom much is given even more is expected’ are the early memories of the encouraging words my father would say sitting on the edge of my bed while I fell asleep at night. No dream was too big as I saw myself as a future astronaut, nuclear physicist, engineer, or even surgeon. We were taught that dreaming wasn’t the problem, but to have never tried was. Growing up in Detroit, the sixth of seven children, my mother watched over us like a hawk. She gave us a good example of a loving, caring environment from which anything was possible. My father is a well-respected physician who broke racial barriers in medicine decades ago. I grew up watching his example, as he treated Detroit’s underserved patients and mentored others rising in his wake. It was through his example that I became the man I am today”, states Dr. Hollowell.

Upon the completion of his training, Dr. Hollowell attained board certification in urology through the American Board of Urology.
