Having been associated with Swedish for over 40 years and only 2 cardiologists, I have been very well cared for from other surgeries and the cardiologists are always involved in my care.

Excellent care this time. The doctor stayed after everyone was gone to go over everything with me. Then the assistant [...] called to tell me test results and was extremely helpful.. This is in contrast to previous experiences with this clinic. Love the great improvement!

I have nothing but the highest regard for John V. Olsen, MD. I most highly recommend him and the Heart/Vascular Institute to anyone I care about who has any cardiovascular issues. He is present, competent and has consistently worked on my behalf throughout my 8 year history w/him. I have nothing but the strongest endorsement of him.

Dr. Olsen was consistently disrespectful and dismissive of my concerns and needs. I had no confidence in the care he was providing.

Dr Olsen and Dr [...] have been taking care of my father since 2010. We think of them as part of our health care family and value their input on not just Dad's cardio health, but his over all health. They are a great asset to Dad's Swedish Team and we look forward to seeing them every 6 months for Dad's pace maker check.
