Sleeps with a blankie!

This guy is weird! He plans an hour each day to take a nap and can't do it without his blankie! One of the nurses he has worked with told me. I knew he was weird, but this is outrageous. He needs more help than he can provide.

This man does not care for his patients

After first visit, I thought I was truly on the road to getting better. Then, because of this terrible dr. I was cast off like a pirhya. He accused me of being someone I'm not and was a grade A A$$HOLE! He could care less about helping his patients, even when they're truly suffering. I would never suggest seeing this guy, as he'll only take your money and leave you feeling worse than when you came in the first time. To boot, he has the personality of a still life photograph.

Not my favorite

I believe Dr. Olmstead knows his stuff. However, he does not have a very good personality, nor a good bedside manner. I've been going to him for three years and don't think I've ever seen him smile.
