Dr. Lucinda Mundorf, MD
Dr. Lucinda Mundorf is the oldest daughter of 6 children, 3 girls and 3 boys, blue collar Baltimore family, I was determined to attend college even though my parents had not. After beginning as a music, piano, and history major at a small women’s college in Virginia I realized I would not be a concert pianist. I considered and thought about skills I should acquire to “work in the missions”. Eventually I graduated from nursing school. While there I realized I preferred a physician role. Two years later I enrolled at Goucher College with the intent of applying to medical school – but this was not so direct.
I continued to work as a nurse at the Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) in pediatrics, oncology, and home care. After coordinating a research program at JHH NICU, I was encouraged to pursue medicine by my mentor.
After prolonged soul-searching, I decided to go back to Goucher for the post-bac premed program even though I was, by then, a single mom of a 5 year old.
At long last, I entered GW. With not a little perseverance and two more children, I graduated in 1999.
All along the way I knew I wanted to work in rural areas where access to health care was not as straightforward as it is in Maryland, where one can easily see world renowned physicians and have well-established health care systems. Most importantly, I hoped to concentrate my practice on wellness and prevention!
Familiar with roadblocks and detours, two months into Family Practice Residency at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh I learned there was doubt the residency could survive! Thankfully, I transferred to Internal Medicine within the Mercy Hospital to avoid potential move, etc.
Since finishing residency in Fall 2002, I have worked in Mississippi, Maryland, Nebraska and, now, North Dakota!
The comment I hear most frequently from my patients, “You listen!”
“Dr. Ramage has been working side by side with all stake holders ofMCHS for many years.He has been committed to the healthcare system during his tenure. I am one of the many whose life was saved as a result of his exceptional ability to diagnose a life-threatening brain bleed. Our community is grateful for Dr. Ramage.”

“I had surgery on a torn meniscus in Feb 2022 and the entire process was very pleasant and professional. My surgery was done by Dr. Joshi and the referral by Dr. Tomjack. I found both to be very professional. Following the surgery I was forwarded to the Connie Wold Fitness Center for physical therapy and the therapist there that I worked with were professional and knowledgeable. The entire experience was positive and I’m the most excited about the fact that all took place right in Watford City. No more traveling to Bismarck for medical appointments!”

“I wanted to thank the hospital staff and doctors for the amazing care I received during my unexpected stay. Your professional care is beyond words. The nurses were very kind and helpful and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, and my needs were met …Again thank you from the bottom of my and my family’s heart. God bless each and every one of you!”

“I had a very good experience with my knee surgery performed by Dr. Joshi. He is very friendly and made me feel very safe about the operation. Recovery was quicker than I anticipated. I highly recommend Dr. Joshi. 5 Stars”

“Dr. Ravindra Joshi performed a total hip replacement on me in September 2020. I never imagined what a total success it would be. I’m back walking, hiking, and enjoying life without pain. An added bonus to my surgery was the outstanding care I received in the hospital, at physical therapy, and the long term follow up by Dr. Joshi and his associates.”

“It’s never easy to see our parents and loved ones age out of staying in their own homes, but our experience with both my mother-in-law, Olga Anderson, and our aunt, Helen Muirhead, showed us this next stage of life can be filled with joy and contentment. BothOlga and Helen lived in the HorizonAssisted Living and later in the Good ShepherdHome.The Horizon facility is beautiful, and Helen was lucky to move into the newly constructed GSH. But the best part of their life in both places was the personal, wonderful loving care they received from the entire staff. The staff treated our loved ones with complete love; we could ask for nothing more.”
— Myra Anderson; Keene, ND
“My mother received wonderful care at the Good Shepherd Home where she was surrounded by loving, caring professionals every day.Although I live in Alabama, moving her here was never a consideration. The quality of care provided at the Good Shepherd Home cannot be matched. My 103-year-old mother was tended for and loved like she was a family member.”
