I'm just saying that he was very, very patient listening to us and looking at and listening to everything was said and it would get in and tell us anything that he would tell us what we thought so forth so it was seem like it was a meeting that was both of us we're happy to talk to each other and we're both learned something I think. I mean he was the one that no lower than our course I did but he was very willing to listen and see what I had to say or anybody else was with me had to say or on the phone. And so I guess that's what else can you ask him to come ended up and it was a very good meeting. Thank you.

My first visit moving here from California with a long record to go over everybody in the staff was very nice, Dr. Olson spent 45 minutes with me understanding me, understanding my history, and you know now he has a feeling of you know, what we need to do moving forward, but he's the best doctor I've had in 20 years as far as my Cardiology. So it was a great experience. Thank you.

I was disappointed in the fact that they did not seem to have my metal ... medic ... medical records from Watertown, for the pulmonary test that they wanted to redo. And it was supposed to have been there. They did have them. There was a mix up. I guess I just was disappointed in seeing that, but things happen. So other than that, I was very satisfied with everything. Thank you.
