I was very pleased with the expertise, advice and care received from Dr. Willstein for a broken collar bone. He provided clear direct options and advice. Surgery was excellent and all follow up visits were great.
Thank you for sharing your experience with others. Patient care is very important to us at Missoula Bone & Joint so we are happy this was your experience. Best wishes from Dr. Willstein and the MBJ team.

Dr. Willstein performed a total knee replacement on my left knee in April, 2017. He had been very helpful in addressing my knee issues for approximately 1 year prior to surgery. He came highly recommended by my long-time personal physician. From my perspective the surgery simply could not have been handled in a more professional manner. The result has been excellent! It has given me back my mobility. I'm truly looking forward to his replacement of the other knee after duck season in Jan. 18'
It makes us so happy to hear your positive experiences. Dr. Willstein and his team strive for excellent patient care and excellent surgical outcomes and we love to hear this feedback from our patients. Best wishes from the MBJ team.

Dr. Willstein ruined my husbands shoulder & our lives, all in one foul swoop. He used 2 metal screws/anchors to repair a torn shoulder labrum. 1 backed out into the joint because it was not properly placed & each time the arm was used, the screw tore up the inside of the shoulder. He has had 4 ADDITIONAL surgeries to try & repair the damage, but unfortunately there wasn't a lot that could be done & a full shoulder replacement was needed. His arm & our lives will never be the same. Thanks Doc!
Patient care is very important to us. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with you so we can get the details. Please call us directly at (406)532-8782. Thank you

Not very helpful. Talks a good game. Hard to get a hold of on the phone. Nurse doesn't return calls. My physical therapist called 5 times and didn't ever get a return call.
We are sorry this was your experience. Patient care is very important to us so we are following up on your comments. If you would like to discuss your concerns please call us directly at (406)532-8782.
