“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!” — Marco Pelton; Watford City, ND
“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.

God bless each and every one of you!” — Ernest Lambert; Belcourt, ND

“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.” — Ron Anderson; Keene, ND
“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.” — Evelyn Wilson; Huntsville, AL
