Patient Comments (2)
in Albuquerque, NM |
Went to his clinic for trouble with my voice. He asked me some quick questions and did not do a physical exam at all. Said he would look at my vocal cords with a scope. His very young speech therapist then came in to get me for my test. I asked where Dr. Olson was and she said she was going to be doing the procedure. She was unwilling to examine my nostrils prior to putting the probe down my nose. I felt that he put too much trust into the staff and did not do enough hands-on.
in Mimbres, NM |
One of the best ENT doctors that provides excellent patient care, professionally, skillfully and with kindness and compassion. His Resdient Physicians reflect the same committment and level of patient care that he sets forth. His reputation speaks for itself then once meeting him a client/patient feels reassurance their health care is in the hands of one of the top in his field.
