About Beth Olson

Beth Olson, certified physician assistant (PA-C), grew up in Elm Grove, Wisc., a small suburb of Milwaukee. She lived there until finishing her Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies at Marquette University, then relocated to Seattle and Minneapolis before making her home in Boulder, Colorado. While growing up, Beth always knew she wanted to be involved in medicine and helping others. Beth knew she had found the perfect fit when she discovered the profession of physician assistant.

As a physician assistant specializing in orthopedics, Beth enjoys helping patients define their goals for healing and working with them to develop a plan to get there. “I am inspired by watching patients progress as they recover from an injury or surgical procedure,” she says. “One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing patients return to the activities they love.”

In her free time, Beth loves spending time with her three children. She also enjoys all types of cycling, skiing, and swimming, as well as travel and getting out into the mountains as much as possible.

Beth has practiced as a physician assistant for 24 years, initially specializing in emergency medicine and then focusing on orthopedics.

She administers hyaluronic acid and cortisone injections when indicated. In addition, she assists Dr. Michael Repine, Dr. Dominik Rog, and Dr. Jennifer Beck in surgery.

Her care philosophy is to work together with each patient to provide the best care possible while treating them with compassion and respect.

“Dear Dr. Grauer and Beth Olson (and the whole awesome team at Boulder Medical): I hope this letter find you well. It’s hard to believe but one year ago I was hobbling around at home recovering from the first of two knee surgeries. Today, I am pretty active and only have tolerable soreness on the left knee afterward and hardly any problems with the right. Having had issues with these old knees since the first dislocation in middle school, just having that stability and joint endurance has been amazing. My wife and I want to thank you for giving me the confidence to pursue all of the fun outdoor stuff that Colorado has to offer. I just wanted to take the time to say – many thanks for being such an awesome team.”
