Edward Olinger, MD is unique in the 21st Century. He is an acclaimed gastroenterologist. He is a super-star in the GI Lab. He is totally patient-centered. He takes phone calls. He LISTENS. He is patient. He provides full, detailed written reports of results. He is warm, kind and gentle. I just had an EGD and a Colonoscopy. It could not have gone better.McCarthy

Dr. Olinger is a unique specialist. He is a brilliant diagnostician who is not afraid to suggest conservative treatments, rather than just prescribing more meds. More importantly, he is a wise, caring and kind practitioner who genuinely cares about his patients. He takes phone calls during office hours when important and always promptly returns calls. He will squeeze you in for a visit even when booked and always follows up to see how you are doing. He gives you an immediate report on tests, such as colonoscopiesk, to minimize anxiety. He is a rare gem. I recommend him more highly than any other doc I have seen.
