I often hear people say that if you have a serious problem that requires surgery you must go elsewhere to find quality care.
If something goes wrong, we always hear about it from every corner of town, but rarely hear about success stories. Well, today, I had my shoulder operated on right here in Havre by Dr. Donaldson, and everything and everyone involved from the nurses who were awesome, to the doctor who was as professional as they come, to the hospital staff who checked me in and were friendly and very helpful, I had a wonderfully pleasant experience. My confidence in local health care was very much bolstered.
My wife, my 80-year-old brother-in-law and my grandson all had similar positive experiences with a broken wrist, broken hip and broken ankle repair by Dr. True all in our very own Havre hospital recently.
So when you hear "go out of town," don't.
