I have been seeing Dr. Yorganson now for almost 9 months now for a foot issue. Everyone here is so nice and professional. I am always greeted by the front desk ladies and have a smooth check-in. I have not had to wait very long before getting called back for my appointment. I’m always treated kindly and all my questions are answered. I appreciate them taking their time with me and would recommend Ortho Montana to anyone needing their service.
