I was under do Oelke’s care for upward of twenty years. During that time I found him to be knowledgeable and professional with a wonderful bed-side manner. He always had time for me and was always able to send to the right person in cases that went beyond his expertise. I highly recommend him.

Have been going to Dr. Oelke since 2008. He helped me finish out my working career. He has gone above and beyond the call to help me with all my R/A problems. If you have a problem he’s always willing to get you in to see him. Five stars in my book !

My initial appointment with Dr. Oelke went extremely well; he spent a lot of time with me and was very professional. Unfortunately that changed when I faxed FMLA paperwork to his office for the condition he diagnosed me with. His assistant called me back to say that Dr. Oelke would not fill out the paperwork, and she was incredibly insensitive, mean and rude when I asked why. I highly recommend not going there.

I have been seeing Dr. Oelke since 2012 and he is by far my favorite doctor. He is the only doctor that I have had who listens to my complaint and finds the cause very quickly. It's usually pretty easy to get an appointment schedule too. Dr. Oelke cares about his patient's physical and mental health. He has always gone out of his way to help resolve my medical issues. I'm lucky that I was referred to him.

It took over ten days to get my Mom into Dr. Oelke after she had a stroke that took the eyesight in her eye. During that appointment, he mostly looked at the computer, hardly looking at her. When her health deteriorated due to infection and I called him at the hospital doctor's advice to ask his opinion on continued use of prednisone and options if she is unable to swallow a pill, he did not listen to her situation and instead was unprofessional, rude and flippant in reply.
