holdridgeDr. Regan Holdridge’s medical philosophy centers on the power of patient education. When meeting with her patients, the doctor takes care to identify and explain all standard of care and clinical research study treatment options in order to empower patients to make the best decisions to fit their individual medical needs.

“Being an oncologist allows me to have a complete patient-physician relationship and to be involved in their care on every level, including helping them to cope with their diagnoses, and navigating through the highs and lows and managing the physical components of their diseases. As their physician, I am with them every step of the way,” Dr. Holdridge said.

For almost four years, the medical oncologist has been practicing at the Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, treating patients with hematology or oncology concerns. She is one of the few physicians in Southern Nevada who are board certified in both hematology and medical oncology. Her primary focus is to provide comprehensive, thorough and evidence-based health care for her patients, with a particular interest in the areas of breast, lung and colon cancer and lymphoma and survivor care.

Dr. Holdridge earned her post-baccalaureate degree and began premedical training at Columbia University in New York City. Later, after studying at the College of Medicine at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vt., she earned her Doctor of Medicine, board certification in hematology and oncology and board certification from the American Board of Internal Medicine. It was there that Dr. Holdridge received the coveted David M. Tormey Award for her perseverance in the pursuit of medical education.

The Fletcher Allen Health Care serves as Vermont’s academic and university medical center in alliance with the College of Medicine and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at the University of Vermont. Here, Dr. Holdridge completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine, a three-year clinical fellowship of hematology and oncology and served as chief fellow of hematology and oncology. During this time, she also took on the role of clinical instructor for the department of medicine, where she was a member of a hematology and oncology fellow education and a cancer committee.

An involved member of the medical community, Dr. Holdridge has held a number of positions. She is an associate member for both the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Hematology, served as chief oncologist for Southern Hills Hospital Division and was elected chairman of St. Rose San Martin Cancer Committee. She currently serves as adjunct assistant professor of Internal Medicine for the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University Nevada in Henderson, Nev.

Born in California, Dr. Holdridge was raised in a northern Vermont town where the dairy cows outnumbered the 2,000 residents. Since moving to Las Vegas, she has discovered a real love for the desert and the Southwest. Dr. Holdridge is married and has two daughters. Her hobbies include photography, hiking, traveling to the beach and baking with her daughters.
