What People Say About Dr. Dale Mortenson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Excellent physician. Dr. Mortenson is very thorough and explains options completely. He speaks quickly, but does not hesitate to answer any questions. His recommendations and surgical treatments seem, to me, to offer the least invasive solution to the problem, and he makes certain that family members understand the results of surgery even before the patient has awakened. I chose Dr. Mortenson based on recommendations I received from others, and I was not the least disappointed in his care.

My son sustained a very serious traumatic injury to his liver while snowboarding. Dr. Mortenson was his attending doc while my son was in ICU. Dr. Mortenson gave my son careful and excellent attention. He answered my questions thoroughly and was able to help my son “out of the woods” without any invasive surgery. Dr Morteson is a very good physician, who knows his stuff and isn’t pious like many docs can be. Go to him! You’ll be glad you did, and your body will thank you!!
