Was having a major problem had seen Olafsson on a previous occasion and was scheduled for another appointment on March 30, 2015. My condition worsened. I requested to see him early because of my problem. Olafsson REFUSED to see me early told me to come in as scheduled. Decided to go to office a week early (March 23, 2015). I was in a wheel chair unable to walk. Sent a nurse into the waiting room to see me ? Enter St. Thomas Hosp in Nashville.via emergency room. Recovery Began.
