    Dr. Olson med with us because my 8 month granddaughter was having seizures. We had been to Vandy and spent a week there. Vandy is wonderful but we needed more time with a doctor and more info. Pediatrician recommended Dr Olsen and she is incredible. She made everyone feel at easy, understand the disease and assured us she would help us get thru this. She spent over an hour with us answering our crazy questions and we never felt like we were being hurried thru and out the door. Great doct
