Review for Dr. Bukacek

I am a new patient. My mother in law who recently had a heart attack and is under his excellent care recommended him to me. I have never had a more thorough and productive physical exam in my 60+ years. Highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Lyle

He is my cancer doc. He doesn’t pay much attention to me. His office staff is not helpful. I feel like a bother more than a patient.

Misdiagnosed me. Didn’t call back for weeks with results. Went off talking too much and didn’t let me express other concerns. Office also won’t let me switch providers. Pretty sure that’s how dr diegel keeps patients! Worst service experience I have had!

Review for Dr. Berkram

We talked about all the treatment I have had for my back. My last doctor really didn't do much to evaluate my problems. I can't believe how much better I feel after having an injection done. I have reduced my medications. I haven't felt this good in years

Review for Dr. Jahnke

Linda Brevik Feb 13 2020

Review for Dr. Drendel

I thought it was a good visit. However, Dr Amidon promised and I mean promised to call me after he reviewed my images and history. It has been almost two months and I am still waiting for promised follow-up. I feel he really didn't even care about me as a human being, let alone a Dr.

Feb 13 2020

Review for Dr. Amidon

Best surgeon as far as we are concerned in the valley. Compassionate, thorough, extremely knowledgeable and knows when to say...not my specialty; but I can refer you to someone. I would highly recommend her for your next surgery.

Review for Paul Coats

Worst experience with a podiatrist I have ever had. Would not listen to patient when patient dealt with same issue over and over. No bedside manner, rude and condescending. I should have trusted my gut about her and not wasted as much time as I did. Staff was great.

Review for Dr. Jonas

I think Dr. Peterson is the BEST! And I am so happy to have him for my doctor. I live in Libby but it is worth the trip over to have him do my yearly checkup. He is wonderful as you all are in that office.

Fantastic surgeon. I had broken a bone in my foot and it was misdiagnosed so a year went by before I had the surgery. It was pain free too. Very nice person.

Review for Dr. Magill

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.

Dec 16 2019

Review for Dr. Tollerson

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

Dr. Lillard was compassionate, caring and extremely thorough. She takes the time to answer questions, believes in a collaborative approach to medical care and her bedside is outstanding. She’s the best surgeon I have ever been a patient with!

Excellent work - first class. Total knee replacement. Very professional. Dr Bergman and his team at North Valley were excellent. I was very impressed and happy with the surgery.

The staff is pleasant at this clinic but this doctor is very rude & arrogant. She talked over me and did not listen to my opinion at all. I will not go back to her.

I found Dr. Alme sensitive to ways to avoid serious surgery, and found a way around such, though I have a retinal hole. I now enjoy 20/20 vision again.

Nick Chickering in Whitefish, MT - Jun 09 2019

Review for Dr. Alme

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.

Review for Dr. Drendel

Excellent diagnostician excellent surgeon. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Federico. Appreciative of his speedy diagnosis of non small cell cancer and resolution with lung surgery 5 years ago. Un fortunately he felt the need to leave Ct.

Dr. Krass and DR Johnny Delashaw operated on my neck in 2012 at UC Irvine. They treated me terrible. I cant say more than that.
