I love this doctor! He is kind and has an awesome bedside manner. He's very attentive to what's going on with his patients.
in Kalamazoo, MI |
Dr. Olivares saved our Mothers life in 1995 when ER doctors and specialists in the hospital had said she would expire. He continued to give her excellent medical care, always encouraging her for the next 20 years, and giving her great quality of life during that time. She finally died just short of 92 years old. Because of his incredible skill, knowledge, and compassion for human life, we had our Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother in our lives for 20+ years. He is 1 in 1,000,000!

Dr. Olivares is unlike any other Cardiologist I've seen. He takes a genine interest in the well being of his patient, diagnoses and prescribes treatment, and meds in the best interest of their individualized care. He follows up with each and every question or request during his own personal time. A totally compassionate and remarkable Doctor.

Dr. Oliveras took care of my mother for 15 years and was patient with her caring and compassionate. Now he is my Dr. and I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else. Sometimes you end up waiting in the office for him, but that is because he is giving the patient before you the extra care that he will be giving to you.

Dr. Olivares saved our mothers life. A Cardiologist at Bronson Hospital told mom nothing could be done for her. Yet two years later she is doing great. We can not say enough good, except we love Dr. Olivares!
