I ended up having to have multiple hernia surgeries because he did a poor job. After having the third one done by another surgeon it is clear that he is careless and inexperienced. Go somewhere else if you want it done right the first time.

He makes it a point to ask if all of my questions have been answered every time we’ve seen him. He explained the surgery very thoroughly to me and has also been very thorough at all of my follow up visits.

If I can leave zero Stars I would! When I asked if Dr olaveson would put my daughter on antibiotics after surgery he said she wouldn't get an infection. She did! When we finally got to his office, post was spewing out of her belly. His bedside manner was horrible! He didn't give her an option for anything to try to reduce the pain as he squoze her belly, he didn'ti rrigate it either. Instead of using a sterile instrument, he used the wooden end of a Q-tip to shove the packing into her open wound

I had been experiencing abdominal pain for some time, about two weeks. I saw multiple physicians in the span of three weeks with blood tests, ultra sounds and a CT scan. Nothing was shown in these so a HIDA scan was recommended. The HIDA scan showed a non functioning gal bladder, one surgeon disagreed with the scan saying it was not working the day of the scan. Dr. Olaveson looked at all the work done and got me in the next day to have my gal bladder removed to finally releive me of the pain
