Excellent provider, great for my daughter who is 12. She felt comfortable with Dr. Chaudhry and was able to share any concerns or questions she had. Dr. Chaudhry provided plenty of time to address these questions and concerns. Couldn't have had a better appointment. Thank you!

She treats her patients with dignity, respect, and patience. One of the few providers that actually work with their patient and cares.

My consultation and surgery with Dr. Muirderman was a pleasant one. The expertise and attention to detail was incredible. My recovery and results were amazing. I will be scheduling another procedure soon with him. He is truly a hidden gem in North Dakota.

Dr. Roller is very intelligent and explains your diagnosis and why you’re having your symptoms well. He is kind and charismatic, making his visits comfortable and easy. He has a lot of confidence and gives you the feeling that things are/will be alright.

His divine healing song in this trying time reveals the most compassionate heart of this doctor. No fear as you said . The virus must die in Jesus name. I believe you were the person that sang with a piano to all wailing and fearful hearts

This is my second total knee with Dr. Leetun. My left knee has been such a God send. Dr Leetun has always been professional, friendly, thorough and competent in our encounters. I was happy to know that he is no longer with Altru, as I have had some less than positive experiences there.

Dr. Argenziano is wonderful. She takes her time and never makes me feel dumb for asking questions. If I call her office because I am nervous or anxious about a new symptom, she gives me an answer or reassurance and doesn’t write me off.
