“Thank you for doing such excellent work on my total hip replacement. I have come through the surgery with little pain and am well on the road to a full recovery.”
“I wanted to send you a thank you and tell you how thankful I am that you got up in the middle of the night to fix my leg after my terrible car accident in December. It has been 6 months since the crash and I can say I am pretty much back to normal...”
Dear Dr. Gelbke, Stacee and staff, We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your care when my husband had his accident in Bozeman. His wounds have healed with no problems and he has returned to work. You, your talents and your organization are nothing short of awesome!!”
