Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Olson "My goal is to provide my patients with optimal care- for some this may be surgical while for others it may be a combination of natural remedies with medical care. I have completed my undergraduate studies in Biology at Yale University then medical school and residency in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. This intensive training at the world famous Texas Medical Center led me obtain an extremely competitive fellowship position in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California at Irvine."
