Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Olson saved my life. I got an e coli infection from food at a restaurant in Las Vega and thought it was the flu. After a few days of having symptoms get worse, I called his office and he got me right in, (that a miracle in itself). He examined me and immediately called emergency at Mercy Medical and somehow got me to the head of the line. Three days later I was released from the hospital. A week later my blood test came back and I was told if I had waited just 2 more hours to get treatment, all my organs would have shut down and I would have died. Dr Olson knows his stuff, and saved my life. Plus he is a great person to talk to and he is very caring.
