sussex, wi |
Dr. Olafsson and his nurse Tracy are not only very caring and compassionate, but are extremely knowledgeable. I like how they work together as a team to get to the bottom of what is going on with me. I receive frequent phone calls from both Dr. and Tracy regarding lab work and test results. Tracy is easy to get ahold of and if she is off, another nurse calls back within 2-3 hours. I have worked in health care myself for over 30 years and this Dr. provides some of the best care available.
