Practice Statement

After graduating from medical school, Dr. Olson began general surgery training at the University of Texas San Antonio, followed by a residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern. He completed a fellowship in facial plastic surgery at the prestigious Hedgewood Surgical Center in New Orleans, LA under the preceptorship of Dr. Calvin Johnson. Dr. Olson returned to Tucson, Arizona, in 1995 as section chief of otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery at the University of Arizona Medical Center (UMC). While he was there, UMC was nationally recognized for excellence in the area of head and neck surgery. Dr. Olson was the first fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon in Southern Arizona. Dr. Olson established his private practice in 2001. Then in December 2007, he teamed up with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Katherine A. Orlick and founded Foothills Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery. In every year from 2011 through 2018, Dr. Olson was selected by his fellow physicians as one of the Best Doctors in America®. This isn’t just another award—only about 4% of doctors in the United States are recognized. This means that not only do Dr. Olson’s peers hold him in high regard as a physician, they would go as far to say that they would seek care from him for themselves or their loved ones.
