Holly S. Gilmer, M.D., is just one of the many highly-talented specialists who work with patients at the Michigan Head & Spine Institute (MHSI). Dr. Gilmer was recently appointed by Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to represent physicians on the State of Michigan’s Board of Medicine for a term beginning Jan. 1, 2020 and expiring Dec. 31, 2023.

“It is an honor for me to be chosen by Gov. Whitmer as an advocate for my physician colleagues and to represent patients, not only those I assist at the Michigan Head & Spine Institute but across the state,” Dr. Gilmer said.
In addition to her work for MHSI, Dr. Gilmer is an attending neurosurgeon at several hospitals including Ascension St. John Hospital, Ascension Providence Hospital, St. Joseph Mercy-Oakland and others.
