Dr Olmstead is a great surgeon, very knowledgeable about breast cancer and surgical procedures. He is courteous and professional, he took the time to explain my surgery and spent time at the hospital making sure the procedure would go smoothly. I would recommend Dr Olmstead to any woman needing surgery for breast cancer.

Utmost confidence in Dr. Olmstead and his staff. Such a gentleman and knowledgable and his nurse was equally good. The whole office made me feel at ease.

Great provider.
Guthrie Patient: February 2017
*Dr. Olmstead (in Feb. 2013) added my surgery to a full surgical day to save me from any further advanced breast cancer and possible chemotherapy. As a result my cancer was removed at stage 1 1/2 and I only required radiation and medication.
