in Rock Island, IL |
Dr. Olson is very professional and caring. He will explain what needs to be done and give you the best care plan possible. He is a great surgeon, as he does his surgeries laparoscopicly which made my recovery a lot shorter! I would recommend him to everyone. He has great bed-side manner and has the patients needs at hand. If your looking for a great, personable, honest surgeon he is the doctor!!
