Patient Comments (8)
My great experience began from the moment I made my appointment. The person answering the phone was so helpful and pleasant and said "You're going to LOVE Dr. Olson!!" She was right- Dr. Olson is great! Their office was particularly busy the day of my appointment, but that didn't stop Dr. Olson and his nurse from spending plenty of time with me! He was very thorough, and answered all of my questions and gave me a lot of reassurance. I will continue to see Dr. Olson in the future.
