Dr. Olmstead was able to assess my breast cancer diagnosis in ways that I completely understood and offered a treatment plan that was appropriate for my age. I had intended to get a second opinion, but I was so comfortable with Dr. Olmstead I chose to forego that and have him do my surgery at Guthrie/Corning Hospital.
