Patient Comments (1)
in Sahuarita, AZ |
I took my Mom to see Dr. Olson for a removal and pathology of a tumor inside the forward vestibule of her nose. His knowledge and attention to detail was beyond reproach. He is a Physician that will listen to you and will take the necessary time to explain in detail what needs to be done. He is a "patient first" and "solution focused" Physician; which makes him a "Top Doc". Dr. Steven R. Penny, M.D (EU)
