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 30 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.

original visit for left shoulders in w/injection, recently after appointment made, I injured my left knee, my PCP ordered another referral for knee to be examined by Dr. Olsen while in for shoulder. Dr. Olsen refused to examine my knee, wouldn't even look at it, as I stated its swollen through pant leg, he said he only can care for shoulder, even after I told him I was in pain. told me to get X-rays then reschedule. at checkout no order was placed, I was planning on going to hospital that day, front person called to back for order, whomever said I had to wait for appointment 4/27/16 made, that's not what doc said. no one cared, had to call my PCP for an X-ray

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.
