Dr. Olvey has really been helpful to me with my Diabetes. He has helped me lower my A1C significantly and I went from three injections daily to just one. He has made himself available to me on his cell phone a lot. I also enjoy the friendly relationship I have with Doc Olvey ........makes going to the doctor a not so bad thing (I used to hate going to the doctor).
Dr. Olvey has always been on top of my diabetes problems. He hasnever said I'll get back to you when I called with a personal problem or question. He lists his cell number for his patients and is always prompt to answer. He is definitely 5 stars in my book
Dr Olvey is my doctor before he went into mdvip 6 years ago. I have had no problems and he and his staff have been super with listening and envolving with medications and appointments. Donald W.
