Ratings for Dr. Eric L. Olson
Dr. Olson patiently was able to prescribe the best regimen of medications for my adult ADHD in a short amount of time. His showed his genuine concern for this sometimes cash strapped patient by often (after giving the prescription) making sure I could receive very expensive psychotropic medications at much reduced prices. It took me around 20 years to find a doctor like Dr. Olson who competently help get me the correct medicinal prescription for my ADHD regimen.
Although I am not a patient of his anymore, I still have mixed feelings about this doctor. I strongly believe as a person he is a great guy. Not once did I believe him to be rude or unethical, he has an exceptional bedside manner... however, I felt that some of his treatments were questionable. I am educated in pre-med, and I am still learning, but I look back and find a lot of his reasoning to be a little off skew. They are usually pretty flexible when it comes to medicine emergencies, which is good. Once again, I think he is a great person with good intentions, but I am not sure of the efficiency of his treatment. I dropped him as my physician after he denied me refill requests because "I was not his patient anymore." This was something that I wished to be communicated differently. In conclusion, I recommend another psychiatrist other than Dr. Eric Olson, MD.
I gave this doctor three years to try and help me. He didn't. I was over medicated. Although he comes off as knowledgable, I feel that he isn't in sync as a psychiatrist. I would say this doctor is not a good choice for psychiatric matters.
He spent a lot of time quoting books and movies and talking about himself. Loaded me up on so many meds I went from being functional to being completely nonfunctional. I have been 100% better since getting off all that crap and away from psychiatry. It's a great place to go if you want to end up a chronic, nonfunctional patient.
