Ratings for Dr. Eileen M. Olinger
Dr. Olinger has been my primary care provider for the past 6 months. As a retired physician, I have been extremely impressed by her caring, compassion, competence, and professionalism. She is an excellent listener, she has made appropriate referrals to necessary specialists, and she has ordered appropriate tests and procedures that were required for a 71-year-old male in fairly good health. I can highly recommend her highly to anyone who needs an internal medicine specialist and geriatrician. I have thus far found nothing to criticize in this most excellent physician.
She is either profoundly incompetent or entirely vindictive toward her patients, neither of which is acceptable in a doctor. For example, upon her first interaction with my mother, she cut my mother's description of her medical concerns to inform her that suing the doctor wouldn't help her. My mother had mentioned nothing of the kind...this was not a good sign. While we were on vacation in the Mississippi Delta on a Monday morning we were told for four hours that she would call us right back by her equally hopeless and disgusting staff and then received no response. Ever. She comes to appointments unprepared, as though she woke up that morning surprised to find herself a doctor, and then is angry and standoffish when the patients aren't thrilled the fact that she's treating them like foolish children. But then perhaps expecting this doctor to know anything about your case when you've already been to see her several times is foolish. Not like she's a real doctor or anything...
This doctor is extremely rude she doesn't ask you questions in a caring way she interrogates you as if you are lying about your past health problems on anything and looks at you like you are an idiot when you answer her questions or ask questions. I went to her in search of a GP and will NEVER go back to her again. She has a very cocky uncaring personality and I would never recommend her for anyone. I have a friend who goes to her and a few of her family members go to her and none of her family members like her they also said she was rude to them.
Dr. Olinger is not a capable, caring or compassionate doctor. She is rude, dismissive, and judgemental. She does not and will not take the time to read any past medical history and is a very poor communicator. Dr. Olinger will ask a question & then not let you answer, without interrupting and talking over you as you speak. If you want a doctor who relegates all of her duties as a physician to other doctors and is uncaring, rude, uncompassionate and judgemental..then this is the doctor for you. She cannot even talk to you and look you in the eye. She CAN however let you know all about herself and her training. Too bad she doesn't reflect that in her treatment of her patients.
