Kaitlyn Olson, MD

Kaitlyn Olson

Born and raised in North Carolina, Dr. Olson came to California for residency training, and never looked back. When she is not a Hospitalist, she enjoys gardening, sewing, and raising her active family.

Kaitlyn completed the Kentucky Derby marathon. We are told no horses were employed during the marathon, but we’re not really sure. The photos seem to have gone missing.
