  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.

Dr. was unable to provide a solution to knee pain stating any procedures are not a great out come. No alternative ideas discussed, I voiced concern about the pain however physical therapy was only offered. No long term plan currently in place. I'm unsure what is next step or where I'll be taking it.

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
