Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Olson "I am grateful for the values instilled in me through my medical education at the Mayo Clinic. 

These include their primary value "The needs of the patient come first" and logo of three interlocking shields representing a model of care based on integrated excellence in clinical practice, education and research.

Being a physician is a blessing and a privilege, and child neurology is a special field.  The resilience of children and families gives me strength.  I strive to do my best every day for the needs of my patients today and the hope of contributing to better treatments for the future. I am thankful to my patients, their families and my own, and excellent colleagues for all that they do to help me achieve my goals and your goals."
