John Olsen

Dr. John Olsen, MD, FASAM

Psychiatry

OVERVIEW

I chose psychiatry because I feel psychiatric illnesses can be the most painful of any medical illness, and I chose a career in medicine primarily to help with people’s pain. The most rewarding part of my practice is helping my patient get through their struggle whether it’s with depression, addiction, anxiety, attention, or memory...that is very rewarding. It’s not unknown for me to share a fist bump when a patient overcomes a particular struggle or life challenge.As a psychiatrist I treat and try to prevent a variety of illnesses. I like to spend the 1st visit getting to know my patients, exploring their diagnosis and the symptoms that have been making them uncomfortable. I like my patients to have a place to understand their diagnosis and talk about how we can treat it. We'll have a 1:1 conversation about the risks and benefits of treatment and for the most part my patients drive their own care after those conversations. When they leave the clinic I want all of my patients and their family's questions to have been answered. If pt's come to the clinic with an open mind it may make a better experience for them. Sometimes patients are disappointed if I don't offer a medication they feel they need or may benefit them, which can happen if I feel that treatment won't help them. I think it makes sense to weigh the risks of a medication as well as its possible benefits, especially when it comes to the mind and emotional health.

"I would rate him a "0" if I had that option. I have anxiety and PTSD and I take 2 medications for it. One happens to be Lorazepam and after just seeing him one time he refused to fill my normal prescription and cut me off without warning. I have been on them for 18 years and I just found out he is against these types of medication all together. Cutting someone off and letting them have withdrawals and not caring does not help a person with my issues and makes them worse. I would recommend finding a doctor that doesn't make his own opinion Gods word and think about the patients needs. I am 68 and would like to live a good quality of life with what I have left. Unhappy Manitowoc patient. "

"Dr. Olsen doesn't read records or listen to patients. He doesn't look at lab work either. He recommends medications that are on allergy lists or that caused issues. Is in the wrong line of work."

"My primary doctor will no longer prescribe my anti-depressant & this is the only one I could see. He is cold & lacks any empathy. He choose the wrong field of medicine!"
