Dr. Holub hails originally from New Jersey.

After two years, following his strong interest in residency education, Dr. Holub relocated to Pennsylvania and joined the residency faculty at the Penn State University/Good Samaritan Hospital Family Medicine Residency.

Dr. Holub joined the University of Rochester in 2010. His clinical interests include obstetrics and the management of chronic illness, particularly diabetes. His teaching interests include obstetrics and practice management. He and his wife, who is a surgical oncologist at Strong Memorial Hospital, have two small children, are avid skiers, and are committed supporters of animal rescue, especially pit bull rescue.
