Biography
Molly Olsen became a doctor to combine her passion for helping people with her interest in science. She enjoys internal medicine because it allows her to care for her patients throughout their lives.

In her practice, she prioritizes prevention and encourages her patients to adopt or maintain healthy habits.  “I think it’s important to address each patient as an individual,” she said. “I respect each person’s priorities and personal values, which is why I strongly encourage patients to participate in health care decisions.”

Molly graduated from Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., with an undergraduate degree in biology. She went on to earn her medical degree from OHSU in Portland Ore., and completed her residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. She is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Originally from Atlanta, Ga., she is excited to join the Hood River community. She has a son with her husband Steve Olsen, M.D., an ear, nose, and throat physician. They both enjoy outdoor activities and are eager to explore the Columbia Gorge.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Having trouble getting medication that seems to work better that what is prescribed currently and does not really listen to what I would prefer for treatment

Molly acts like she cares. When I first met her, told her I was 75 and expected to live to 100. Her job was to keep me running

I am very pleased with Dr. Olsen, but to schedule my first appointment with her took 4 months. I moved here from the East Coast with a need for blood monitoring, and my doctor from PA needed to continued as my care giver long distance for all those months.

I am unable to sit due to pain [...] I had to stand up so long waiting for their meeting to end. they are a very rude uncaring facility.
