My experience with this practice was absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough about the kind and caring, even patient, nature of each and every member of the staff. I had numerous questions and concerns that were addressed and Dr. Oliver not only answered questions but provided reasoning why. I was very at ease with scheduling surgery and on the day of. Best of all, the results were wonderful and the cost was very reasonable considering his expertise.

My 2 visits with Dr. Oliver were both good. The first was in his office where the staff was very polite and professional. The only problem was with the paperwork layout being poor. The visit was on time and he was very pleasant and easy to talk with. The next visit was at the hospital where he performed the surgery. He was very good about visiting with me before surgery as well as in recovery and conveying information to my care giver.

My visit was a very unpleasant experience. The staff were impatient and impersonal. Dr. Oliver could work in his bedside manner a little more to make ALL patients feel comfortable. The nature of his business is delicate and each person should be treated with care and compassion.
