There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Love *Dr. Olson. He did my carpal tunnel surgeries. No problems. SO if I need another surgery in my future I will only have him perform it.

Dr. Olsen was professional and caring. He took the time to explain surgery and post surgery and never rushed me allowing me to ask all my questions of concern. I could not be more pleased with his professionalism.

I have already told everyone about Dr. Olson. He is paying attention and focused on my knee, my pain, my recovery when he is with me. I feel like the mistress..."When he's with me, he's all about me" lol. My husband and I have confidence that with the bumps in recovery he is fully involved in and is so encouraging and always willing to revisit to check on progress. I know that is half of what makes me believe that this injury is fully recoverable for me.

I was very impressed with Dr. Olsen's diagnosis as I was told by another doctor I needed major surgery and Dr. Olsen did not feel I needed this surgery and he was right as I am on my way to healing.

No concerns.

For a first visit, I found it very helpful. Dr. Olson confirmed my suspicions about my issue and explained my options.
March 25, 2015
I thought Dr. Olsen spent good quality time with me; explained everything to me ie: further testing and follow-up. At this point, my son is now going to be seeing him as well.

good
March 16, 2015
Dr. Olson and Eric were terrific. Very easy to explain my problem to. Dr Olson said I would have relief from the pain within one week and almost to the day I realized the pain was gone. So happy I chose Dr. Olson.
March 16, 2015
My previous doctor wanted to do surgery and that was not an option from my point of view. This doctor was sure I could improve my problem with therapy after I fell on the winter ice.
Feb 27, 2015
love him. he is great
Feb 20, 2015
Dr. Olson responded to my being overwhelmed by looking at me, speaking calmly & allowing me time to think about my options. Loved him.

Dr. Olsen repaired my left rotator cuff a few years ago. He is a excellent surgeon. I am well satisfied with his care.
