Dr. Olmstead was an amazing doctor and we are so thankful he took care of my husband. He was compassionate and caring. Everyday he called us with an update on his progress & also informed us when things were not getting better. He saw the need to let him come home to be with his family. We are so thankful that he was with us when he passed.

This was a phone exchange - Dr. Olmstead always "calls back!" He is on "top" of our family concerns. He is the "best."

April 16, 2020 9:24 AM

Really like Dr. Olmstead - problem is it's difficult to see him on a few days notice when I get sick. Even difficult to see anyone at the practice. Usually wind up at Prompt Care. That is not what should be expected. Too much scheduling - not enough about actual care. I was advised to go to prompt care by scheduler at Dr. Olmstead's office. That is not the level of service I expect from Advocate.

April 4, 2020 11:00 AM

Dr. David Olmstead is the most concientious Doctor I have ever know. Dr. Olmstead is very thorough and always calls me personally to go over any test results. I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Olmstead as my Primary Care Physician.

Dr Olmstead is an excellent Dr one of the only providers that I trust.

As always. Dr. Olmstead is kind and a caring doctor. He is always pleasant.

March 12, 2020 10:55 AM

Dr. Olmstead has been my doctor for years. I see him twice yearly to monitor my blood pressure, but also, when I feel on black ice and when I had pneumonia. I would not want any other doctor.

March 12, 2020 10:55 AM

He is fantastic. I have "all the faith in the world" in him. I love Advocate Medical Group. I'm treated with respect and would recommend Advocate Group to anyone, and also, Dr. Olmstead.

great - he's always thorough and present during the entire appointment. he always seems to spend more time (in a good way) during his visits compared to other providers, which seems like part of the reason he is as good as he is (and i am also a healthcare provider, so i pay attention to this)

February 17, 2020 4:15 PM

Dr. Olmstead is a wonderful listener, a concerned provider & the best doctor I ever have had!

February 16, 2020 5:20 AM

Dr. Olmstead is absolutely excellent. Old age is really tough, but he makes it a little easier. My wife and I have been seeing him for years and we would never consider seeing anyone else. We believe he has probably saved our lives on some occasions. (He's keeping us alive.)

February 13, 2020 12:10 PM

Everything went great - we have seen Dr. O. for more than 20 years, and do not plan to change.

February 3, 2020 3:34 PM

I am EXTREMELY pleased with my recent visit with Dr. Olmstead for a check-up. I had two minor concerns that he proved these were not problems at all...Dr. Olmstead had a concern with my PSA & recommended that I follow up with urologist, which I did and I am glad Dr. O made this recommendation.

February 3, 2020 3:34 PM

I consider Dr. Olmstead as a medical genious...I've been seeing him well over 10 years, not as frequently as I should, but any time I had a problem, he was able to cure me very quickly. Everytime I see Dr. Olmstead, I sense the passion that he has in maintaining his patient's health.

January 29, 2020 11:18 PM
