Dr. Holly Cleney is a board-certified family physician. She received her medical degree from SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York, and completed a family medicine residency at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York. Dr. Cleney began her studies at Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York, earning her bachelor’s degree.
Dr. Cleney has a general interest in helping people understand how so many of our physical symptoms come back to stress and how we can worry so much less about our health if we can understand that. Moreover, helping people with their struggles with losing weight is challenging but rewarding when success happens, and people adopt more healthy lifestyles and see its benefit.
Dr. Cleney had the opportunity to speak throughout the country about Latham Medical Group’s work with behavioral health integration and transforming medical care to be higher quality and more patient-centered. She loves working in family medicine because she gets to know people of all ages and families of all types and becomes part of improving or maintaining their health and happiness. She values having the chance to be in that process and share their joys and grieve with them in all stages of life. Dr. Cleney believes being trusted to be in that position is such an honor.
Dr. Cleney loves that every day is a new day and never knowing what will be on the schedule – from a brand new baby to a procedure, to helping a patient out of a depression or severe anxiety attack, to a cancer to diagnose or to simply a well child to hear their accomplishments. She also enjoys working with patients over time to learn how best to manage their chronic diseases like Diabetes.
Dr. Cleney is on the board of Building on Love, a non-profit organization offering support to local families facing medical emergencies, and serves on the Board of Directors of CDPHP. In her spare time, she enjoys fitness classes involving weight lifting, basketball, and golf. Also, you will likely find her cheering for the Buffalo Bills when she’s not cheering her three children on in their volleyball, basketball, baseball, and soccer games.
