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.
