She has been my GP for several years. I like her a lot and she listens. I have a very complicated medical condition that few doctors understand, but she does. I do recommend her to family and friends l.

Dr Drendel is a kind, caring and very intelligent physician. I am very pleased with the care she provides and the time she takes with me when I am in the clinic.

Dr Drendel was great. I ended up selecting her as my PCP after 3 awesome appointments. Listens, allows me to speak before providing care, and never has an agenda. Always thinks outside the box.

I wouldn’t recommend her to anyone. She labeled me with mental disorders and as a drug seeker. A Missoula gi diagnosed me with severe gastroparesis which was causing all my symptoms. If I had stayed with Ms Mangold I would probably be dead by now.

Dr. Drendel has a poor attitude, is condescending, and provided poor medical care after a serious automobile accident. Did not care about my needs, or listen. I ended up filling a complaint at her clinic, who had her follow up with me, and her attitude was worse than ever. Found a competent doctor to replace her.

After Dr Tollerson saw me for years and cancelled in one day all my medications including nitroglycerin, then wouldnt give me my records even by registered request. I am healthier now then then.

We never have to wait for Dr. Anderson. He is always on time and pleasant. He explains things completely and if he is not sure, he always checks on the spot. We couldn't be happier with his thoroughness although, sometimes not with his diagnosis. I recommend him highly

She really wasn't concerned about what was going on with me she just wanted the money she would get for labs(huge profit industry these days)and unneccessary invasive tests that specialists usually perform.Strange entitlement attitude for a small,not so great clinic.

8 hours ago My husband had a vasectomy on February 9th. John Tollerson told us that he was having an assistant. Ok, fine and good, except John made the initial cut, and he let let the trainee doc take over. At one point he said “wrong one” when someone is doing surgery on your boys, that’s scary, then Dr Tollerson says”you might want to numb that first” and then he says “ your knife is backwards” GOOD GOD!! My husband called the clinic 3 weeks in and they told him that he was still in pain beca

Dr. A spends a lot of time with each patient. He is very bright and keeps up to date with latest research. He examines all of the information before arriving at a diagnosis. He is humble and has great bed side manner. He is an excellent listener. Very practical.

Andrea Meiers is a very patient, comforting and lovely person to help you with your health issues. She always knows what to say and always makes sure you leave knowing what to do about your situation- or will help you to take the steps in order to get there. I have been with her for short time but I know that I am confident with her, and that I am in good hands.

Doug does not listen to his patients. He believes everyone is runny away from something, everyone is depressed and everyone lies. Not a great way to establish a trusting relationship.
