I have been under the care of Dr. Holstein for three years now every visit I receive personal care and attention . I appreciate ihis straight forwardness and thorough examination of me through multiple tests in order to receive an accurate diagnosis for me. An aortic aneurysm sounds very scary but under the care of Dr. Olstein and fervent prayers to God , I know I'm in good hands. ??

I was sent to Austin Heart HH, to get a stress test.This test was done by wonderful & professional people. To my unknown delight, this was just a prerequisite to the start of my current journey. The test results came in, I was contacted for a follow up to discuss what the test indicated. During this visit everything was explained and a plan of care was discussed. I was surprised at how at ease all of the staff made me feel and the level of comfort. Dr. Olstein now has me as a new patient.

I would highly recommend Dr. Richard Olstein, a cardiologist at Austin Heart in Harker Heights. He is very personable, happily answers all questions asked, LISTENS intently, does NOT rush your scheduled visit with him, & truly cares about his patients. Also, Dr. Olstein is open to discussing (& learning) any new information researched & presented to him by a patient...A rarity nowadays. GREAT doctor!

My visit with Dr Olstein was in regards to blood pressure meds, and also a echo cardiogram checkup. I found Dr Olstein very patient and knowledgeable. I had a lot of questions, but never felt pressured about taking too much time. He explained things clearly, drawing quick pictures of how things work, making it easy for a layperson to understand! I look forward to my next visit!!

From the first moment I met and spoke with Dr. Olstein I felt relieved and well informed on my options. His explanations of my condition and recommendations for treatment choices provided me with confidence in my choices and his skills.
