Was a patiend for a few years and was terminated as a patient without warning for a misunderstanding that could have been explained at a dr visit. Was very disappointed, but when one door closes sometimes a better one opens.

Dr. Olson is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. He is also attentive and offers adequate time for each patient. He has helped me get through some very tough times. There have been times when I have had to advocate for myself but that is true of every doctor. They are not mind readers. I have had trouble with front desk taking correct notes and leaving important details out of refill requests, but I made the issues known and they were corrected. I am a huge fan of this office as I have received the best treatment in Bozeman, Dr. Olson has far surpassed my many other experiences in the area.

There's no doubt in my mind that Dr. Olson has Dementia or Alzheimer's. I was in a crisis and saw him 2 days in a row. On the 2nd day, he couldn't remember who I was, what he assigned my diagnosis as, or what he had prescribed me the previous day. He then got extremely mad at me for reminding him that I had just saw him the day before. I was so scared by his temper that I've never seen a Psychiatrist since then. Absolutely traumatizing. Board of Medicine, PLEASE look into him!

I am just absolutely baffled by the positive reviews. He is by far one of the worst psychiatrists I have ever dealt with. He doesn't listen or display any signs of compassion. He just sits at his little podium with his prescription pad. After seeing him for a few months (far too long) I realized that I was essentially a "guinea pig". I was on every medication he could possibly throw at me, he even had me on a medication for restless leg syndrome. His employees think he's a quack..Very odd man

Dr Olson has been kind, patient, and compassionate with me as we worked together towards a healthier mental state. He prescribes nothing without thorough assessment and consultation. His medication recommendations have been spot on and he has always offered additional holistic care options. I’ve been very happy with my treatment plan.

Dr. Olson is careful to watch for negative symptoms when starting a new medication and if there is anything concerning he is right on it to make positive changes.
