Your trust is our top concern.

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

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 is truly a wonderful pain specialist. He is a retired neurosurgeon and is not satisfied with just treating pain - he makes it his job to discover the cause of the pain which hopefully can be corrected. I highly recommend him.

Overall, I was very impressed with Dr. Olson. He's very easy to talk with. This was my first appt and he spent 90 minutes delving into the history of my pain(s). I learned some valuable information that other specialists failed to disclose. I appreciate that he's not offering false hope, instead focusing on the reality of my pain(s) and ways to manage it effectively.
