Care Philosophy

I subspecialize in otology - disorders of the ears, with a particular expertise in the surgical treatment of chronic ear infections, tumors, and reconstruction of hearing in patients so affected. This is extremely meticulous work, and experience and training count. I am one of about a dozen otologic subspecialists in the state of Washington, and treat a large and diverse group of patients living in Whatcom and San Juan Counties.

Dr. Olson solved the inner ear problem I was having and I am most grateful. His manner is compassionate, positive and helpful. He was skillful in providing information about my condition as well as helping me understand how to alleviate my chronic coughing. His staff was friendly and put me at ease, and I had no wait for my appointment. I would DEFINITELY recommend him.

Dr. Olson is competent and does his work well. Did two surgeries for me and both went very well. He explains things well but sometimes seems like he is in a hurry to get on with the next patient. But, if you ask questions and insist on thorough answers he will take the time to answer them. What more can you ask for in a doctor?
in Bellingham, WA |
Dr Olson is very smiley and expresses lots of interest and concern. However, I left feeling that he had too much interest in subsequent business for his practice. I never heard from him any assessment of the cons and financial implications of his suggested next steps. I have no reason to believe he is less than competent as a physician, but I have no faith in his recommendations. Interestingly, although he is an ear specialist, he seemed to have little knowledge of hearing aid developments.
