Staff Testimonials

Here are some of the wonderful things our employees have to say about Missoula Bone & Joint:

"Last weekend my family went to our place in Trout Creek. In the middle of the night my daughter came in crying that her ears hurt. She had been running a fever so I figured she probably had an ear infection. The next morning I took her to the family clinic in Thompson Falls. When the two office ladies found out I work at MBJ, they both raved about our services. One woman told me that her dad and Doug were tight, and said how great Dr. Price is. There was a long wait to be seen in T Falls so they took my information and sent me to their clinic in Plains. The office people in Plains also raved about MBJ. They love having Dr. LaPorte hold clinic there. One person said Joan fixed his hand and someone else talked about how Dr. Jarrett helped her with her foot problems. It makes me feel good to work for a company with such a positive reputation!"


"I have worked at MBJ for the last six months and I have to say that this has been the most wonderful place to work. I did my internship here in college and I always had a goal of ending up back here as an employee. I love coming to work every day, I love that my co-workers are so wonderful and I love that from day one I have been treated like family!"


"I have been an LPN for 29 years and have worked in a variety of medical facilities in several states and I can state without reservation that Missoula Bone & Joint is the best place I have ever worked. I have never worked for or with a better or more caring group of people. And besides that, it´s fun!"


"The doctors and the staff strive to make each patients experience one that they will want to brag to their friends and family about. Our goal has been met when a patient leaves Missoula Bone & Joint with a smile on their face!"


"What a joy it is to work at MBJ. I have patients tell me daily what a pleasant place this is to come to. They enjoy the attitude and pleasantness of the employees. This thrills my heart as that is what we are trying to do."


"We have the best doctors to work for! They are very compassionate and truly care for their patients and employees!"


"Where the employees are concerned, the doctors and administration at MBJ always have our best interests in mind. They really care about us!"

"I am very proud to say I work at MBJ."


"The finest group of physicians I have ever worked with. They are fair, honest and very caring."


“It is such an honor to work at Missoula Bone and Joint Surgery Center. The surgeons are not only extremely skilled at what they do, but they are wonderful people as well. They do volunteer work yearly in foreign countries as well as volunteer work for the needy right here in the community. The monetary benefits at MBJ are great, but what I love most is the level of competency and cohesiveness with the staff.”


“I have worked at MBJ for almost 15 years. I work for and with extremely knowledgeable and caring people. Patient care is truly the #1 priority. MBJ offers competitive salary ranges as well as some of the best benefit packages around. The physicians here lead by example. They truly respect their employees and often ask for input or suggestions on ways to improve patient care and efficiencies. The physicians work hard and in turn we want to work hard for them. The physicians and management ask for employee input. MBJ has created several committees that focus on health & wellness, process improvements, charitable contributions, etc. Each position is granted yearly education funds that can be used for seminars or classes that focus on customer service, billing/coding, and the latest trends in healthcare. Job openings are posted internally first to promote and encourage employees to challenge themselves and encourage advancement.”


"The physician/owners and management care very much about the people who work for them, their patients and the larger community. In spite of a shaky economy, every effort is expended to assure job retention and benefits for the employees, not to mention continued charitable giving and donation of time and talent. Our opinions are asked for and listened to. It’s the best place I have ever worked and I have been a nurse for 34 years. The organization is constantly looking for new and better ways to serve our clients and the community while keeping a family atmosphere. Employees are asked for opinions on changes and input is encouraged. Numerous committees exist for those who wish to participate including ones for charitable donations, process improvement, and a “fun” committee for morale. Every licensed person is given money for continuing education and encouraged to share information received. Doctors and staff have participated in outreach to clinics in Central America, fund raising for Camp Mak-a-Dream, and a local low cost clinic. Opportunities exist within the organization for job shadowing, mentoring and advancement in most areas."


“I believe MBJ has excellent benefits and very generous personal leave policies as well as being a “family” organization. MBJ supports our individual families and allows us the time and ability to be employees as well as parents and spouses. Our physicians are very devoted family men as well and support our community and youth. They are also very philanthropic as individuals as well as a group in this community and abroad. Our staff is very caring and committed to great patient care.”


"I love working at MBJ! It is a family atmosphere with wonderful co-workers and physicians who really do care about their employees."


“As an employee, I love working at MBJ! It offers benefits and job positions that are filled with variety which makes each day new and interesting. Our physicians are just the “Greatest” to work for! They really care about their employees. MBJ offers in-house committees and programs for their employees to take part in. This brings them together in fun/sharing atmospheres allowing them to grow in relationships within the company. MBJ offers each employee the ability to seek continual education. There are also other areas of growth professionally within the company. When new job openings occur within our company, it allows employees to apply. By doing this, employees can venture into a new professional area which is of interest to them. This promotes knowledge and growth within the employee, making for a HAPPY employee! The Mission Statement says it all. This is not just an ordinary clinic. Our physicians really make every effort possible to provide the BEST possible care to their patients from check in to check out. I am very grateful to work with such a Wonderful Group!!”

MBJ works as a team to better serve the patient. We work like a “well oiled machine” to serve the needs of our patients and our community.
