Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Olson takes the necessary time, listens carefully to my concerns and thoroughly explains any requests for further testing or treatment.

As my Primary Care Physician for well over a decade, I appreciate her attention to all aspects of my health. I have never once felt rushed out of her office without having all of my questions discussed at length. My 65 year friends are envious of the excellent care that I receive!

One Star

I had a similar experience with this physician. I was very uncomfortable with the length of time she examined ears, throat, breathing, breast exam etc. I actually felt assaulted by her continual heavy hand in her manual examination.

Blood Test

She was a nice to talk to and gave decent answers to my questions. When it came to her questions it seemed like she was very very judgmental. When it came to my physical, I thought I was only there for a blood test when she really was going to examine me. I didn't mind that I was getting a check up. What I did mid though is it took two hours for her to complete the physical that's checking ears, throat, inside the throat, breathing, and abdominal. She kept going side to side looking and re-looking and when I asked how everything was she said it was just fine. Nothing is wrong. This happened on the very first thing she examined. After that I was getting irritated and annoyed with how long this physical was taking. This is or was officially the longest physical I've ever had. Not happy about my experience there. I would NOT recommend this family practitioner to anyone!!
