Dr. Olivares is a professional, thorough, caring physician who was able to figure out what was going on with me when others could not. He saved my life.

My whole family goes to see Dr. Olivares. He has been my doctor for years. He is incredibly compassionate and always takes time to listen to my concerns. He explains things in terms that are easy for me to understand. He is bi-lingual. He speaks Spanish to some of my family members and English to others. He is very personable and has checked in on my family on weekends. I give Dr. Olivares my highest recommendation.

This was my first and final visit with Dr. Olivares. I had an incident that put me in the hospital over the weekend and was told to follow up with my doctor. The office I usually go to got me in with him. He barged in to the exam room while the nurse was still doing the vitals and didn't even introduce himself. He started taking notes and talking at me through his voice to text microphone. Never asked me any question or even talked to me really. I left very insulted. Horrible doctor.

After years of seeing Dr. Olivares he seems to be losing his passion. I went in for a yearly physical and he just spun me around to look at my skin. He asked about the FOB fecal test...and never gave the kit to me. I didn't receive a referral for a mammogram. I was so frustrated with his lack of caring. He couldn't get out of the room fast enough. He didn't even know I was there for a physical for Pete's sake. Lame!
