Dr. Olson is a great Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a good patient experience and quality care. Dr. Olson takes the time to talk to you, explains treatment and tests. He does have students from time to time and I found his students very knowledgeable, nice and approachable. The office staff is excellent and well trained. When it comes to acute care Dr. Olson fits you into the schedule ASAP, one of the best neurologists out there.

My experience was really poor. The doctor was training a student, so he spoke more to the student than me. After ordering several tests (all outsourced), I never got the results. After a couple weeks, I inquired and just got everything is fine, without any indication of next steps toward diagnosing my symptoms. I sent an email explaining my frustration and instead of receiving a response that showed any empathy toward patience, I received a certified letter discharging me as a patient. Bizarre

Dr. Olson was friendly but a disappointing experience. Referred to him for an EMG to rule out peripheral neuropathy. Ordered an MRI of neck & bloodwork & stalled on the EMG. Results: a mild stenosis and blood panel with mild elevated protein size. Stunningly he refused to answer my basic questions about the results of these tests and instead referred me to a Neurosurgeon, and an Oncologist. Both specialists practically laughed when I showed up to their offices. Seek help elsewhere.

He is a great doctor and he has treated me since 2008 and him and his nurse assistant are both great.
