If I could rate lower than one star I would do it. What a horrible experience. First, It took weeks to make an appointment. The actual appointment itself was awful between the long wait time, Dr. Olan not introducing himself, explaining the procedure in medical lingo I didn't understand, spent barely a two minutes with me, didn't look at my chart etc. What was worse is his scheduler Tracy was so rude to me that after I left the appointment I burst into tears. Oh and she still hasn't called me!

Dr. Olan, great compassionate Neurosurgeon. I definitely would recommend him and his staff to everyone! I had a Brain Aneurysm at work in DC and was rushed to the George Washington Hospital in D.C. My family was contacted in Philadelphia, PA and they rushed to my side in D.C. and spoke with the Neurosurgeon, Doctors and Nurses. Through God's Grace, I survived and am truly thankful that God allowed Dr. Olan and his staff to care for me. There are no words to describe how grateful I am.
