Dr. Olson was very kind, attentive and helpful at my visit with her. She shows concern for the wellbeing of her patients, and I trust her with any advice she gives me. One of the very BEST.

Dr. Olson performed a difficult, complicated intestinal surgery on me in 2010. My personal physician frankly was not sure that anyone could make it through that particular procedure, which lasted for several hours. I did, and Dr. Olson's determination and skill were major reasons. Why write a review after 10 years? Because the ultimate measure of the skill with which a medical procedure is performed is its long-term effectiveness. I have had no serious follow-on problems in 10 years. Dr. Olson is a dedicated, skilled surgeon.

Did not have a good experience. Starting with the appointment where she did not explain the surgery options and ending with problems after the surgery. Never got a followup phone call.

Superb and watchful hospital care from emergency room, through hospitalization and follow up appointments. Dr. O is kind and very professional. Her presence takes the worry out of recovery.

Extremely rude and unwilling to spend time with patient during initial consultation. If you need surgery, find a different doctor. I wouldn't trust her for a moment.
