I have been going to Dr. Olsen's office for years (my wife and 4 kids as well). He's good at what he does. I have not needed anything major done, just exams and a filling. The hygienists at his office are also friendly and knowledgeable.

Mr reddy was a rude jerk, he would leave the office with a huge frown and slam the door in the middle of my sentence. I asked him to repeat a sentence that he had mumble with his back pointing to me, and he took a long sigh and angrily repeated the Sentence half yelling.

Awful. Wouldn't prescribe stimulants for narcolepsy without parental involvement despite being an adult and wouldn't prescribe Xyrem without use of CIPAP despite no sleep apnea.
