Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Olson is professional, personable, and patient. He is refreshing because he actually looks at you when you speak rather than stares at his computer, and he never interrupts you. The only concern is that it takes an inordinately long time to get in to see him. Clearly HHC needs to staff the Mystic office better as there seems to be a shortage of physicians of every specialty, and patients can’t get in to see them.

Made me feel very comfortable and listened to. I had a injection in my spine and I felt I was in good hands. The procedure was quick and painless.

Dr. Olson is very compassionate and understanding. He explained my condition to me very clearly and came up with a plan of treatment that we were both in agreement on.

I never felt rushed with Dr. Olson. He always listened and directly addressed any questions or concerns. I trusted his opinions and recommendations and never felt he was condescending when addressing my pregnancy-related questions as a first-time parent.
