"Dr. Shurtz is one of the best medical professionals we have ever worked with. We like everything about him and his practice. He is not only extremely knowledgeable in his field, but also compassionate with his patients and he communicates in a down-to-earth and easy to understand manner.  When we moved to Missoula a few years ago, we were nervous about finding a good fit for our medical needs. We were thrilled to find someone who could deliver what we needed, is kind, and is in town!"
