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.

Also, Dr. Olstein is open to discussing (& learning) any new information researched & presented to him by a patient...A rarity nowadays. GREAT doctor!

I look forward to my next visit!!
