Patient Comments (6)
Galesville, MD |
I agree with the other negative reviews. Dr. Olenec was dismissive and peremptory when my husband had concerns about the medication he was prescribed and when he asked to discuss alternatives. So, we had the next procedure done by a different doctor in the same office. We're now receiving a letter from Dr. Olenec with the same brusque, presumptive tone.

Dr. Chris Olenec provided excellent care and service to me. He was quite attentive, focused on my disposition and procedure. Dr. Olenec met with me prior to my procedure and after he completed my procedure. I applaud his professionalism and commitment to his oath and practice.

Dr. Olenec is a wonderful and caring doctor. I was able to get in immediately as a new patient and he was able to take care of my issues right away. I would recommend him 100%.
Pasadena, MD |
I felt he was dismissive and condescending during the office visit.

Dr Olenec seems fine if you are the type that accepts everything a doctor says without doing your own research. Personally, I found him to be confrontational, dismissive, unaware of new research on dietary implications in bowel disease, and unwilling to research it even after three appt's. He was unwilling to work with me on finding an acceptable treatment after I declined the use of certain dangerous immunomodulator medications. He refused even to renew long term maintenance prescriptions.
During my initial consultation with, Dr. Olenec, he ordered a colonoscopy and a CT scan. After the colonoscopy, he took time to review the pics and results with me and answered all my questions. The extra precaution of ordering the CT scan proved to be the right call because it revealed a condition that requires further review and care from another specialist.
