“I’ve going to the Bone & Joint Clinic since 2014, I have always found the staff to be very professional and helpful answering any questions. I started seeing Dr LaPorte for a left knee issue and ended up getting a full knee replacement recently. Dr LaPorte is professional and answers all questions. He is not too chatty, but gets right to the point. He shows concern for his patients and does try to help them to the best of his ability. I am in recovery from my knee replacement and will be having my other knee replacement done in the next 6 months, Dr LaPorte will be doing that knee replacement too. That is how confident I am in having him as my Orthopedic Doctor.” Laura, online review April 2019
“My visit with Dr. Jeffrey LaPorte for a knee issue was one of the best Dr. appointments I’ve had. All of the staff that assisted me at Missoula Bone and Joint were professional and friendly. Wait time was minimal and since I arrived early I was expecting to wait much longer than I did. Dr LaPorte was professional, friendly, and very detailed about what I was looking at as far as treatment. I feel like I’m in good hands. Thank you Missoula Bone and Joint.” Trish, online review April 2019
“Dr. LaPorte was a refreshing experience! He took the time with me to discuss my shoulder issues and also took the time to check into other areas that might be aggravating the problem, after being told other opinions that surgery was my only resort, Dr. LaPorte took the time to evaluate MRIs, xrays and other tests. He took the time to question me on my needs and expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. LaPorte. He is VERY thorough and his dry sense of humor was greatly appreciated by me. When and if the time comes that surgery IS the only option I would not hesitate a bit to trust his skills and judgement as my orthopedic surgeon.” Tracy F. 6-6-19
“The great experience starts with Jessica in Dr. Laporte’s office and continues all the way thru the OR with PA Greg Murray and the great staff. At 56 I needed a complete right hip replacement (hip was bone on bone with arthritis) I had never experienced anything close to this. But with some guidance from my GP Dr. Stritzke I’m more than happy I had the surgery with Dr. LaPorte. At 7 weeks out I’m rehabbing on my own, climbing stiars and spinning on my bike again. Thank you all.” Dennis B. online review 2018
“I found Dr. LaPorte very encouraging, very compassionate, and professional. He is a good doctor, I trust him.” Patricia, April 2019.
“I had Rotator Cuff surgery on my left shoulder with Dr. LaPorte. This was my sixth different surgery since 2002 that has been done at Bone and Joint. My experience with Bone and Joint has been nothing but professional, that is why, if Bone and Joint can perform a surgery I may need in the future, it will be done there. I highly recommend using their services. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being on the top, I would give their services a 20. Thank you Bone and Joint.” Dave C, Oct. 2018.
