I did not enjoy being compared to either range fed or feed lot beef-cattle or being told my hunger is psychological and that I'm an addict. Considering second opinion.

I've had surgery from Dr Olsen on 3 different occasions for various reasons over the last 4 years. In my opinion, this man is wonderful. He's no nonsense, so don't expect to be babied. He tells it like it is. He's always taken the time to listen to me and he explains things where I can understand...more

He was very short, rude and made me feel like a loser and I honestly feel like it was because I had Medicare for my insurance and he said they don't pre approve and if they didn't approve after the procedure then he was out because he was pretty sure I couldn't afford it !!!
