Philosophy of Care

I believe that the patient will tell you their diagnosis if you take the time to listen and I try to treat conservatively before considering operative cures.

Interests

Medical Interests

I am an active generalist.  I treat all parts of the musculoskeletal system including knees, shoulders, neck and back including hands, hips and feet.

Personal Interests

Outdoors is my love. I love animals and enjoy training my bird dogs and generally being outside.

I chose to live and practice medicine in Polson, MT because the St. Joe's is very interested in quality medicine and the staff is like family. I love to teach and mentor and often have a shadow from one of our teaching institutions.

I tried to contact Dr. Righetti. The phone rang about 14 times with no answer and not even a voicemail to leave a message.

[...] Regetti was discouraging & made me feel that I was crazy to want to have knee surgery. He also said I needed to take ibuprofen for the pain & inflamation, before I even thought about surgery.

An excellent listener - Practical but pragmatic - gave an on - going observation plan. Made appt. personal - not "medically detached" assurance of any time availability.

Stroke recovery and medication issues make communicating with Dr's difficult. My husband helps with these problems [...] on the day of this visit we were unprepared for exactly what was going to be discussed, that in addition to medication problems made for a less than productive appointment.

He concentrated on the arthritis in my knee and did not address the peripheral knee problems which are now being dealt with bu physical therapy without their knowing the whole problem.

I had never met the doctor before. I came to the walk in clinic with a shoulder problem. He and his staff took great care and spent a lot of time with me. It was much appreciated.

[...] I had been anxious about the procedure, and Dr. Righetti put me at complete painless ease, and I left St. Joe's soon after, feeling completely satisfied with both Dr. RIghetti and [...], his nurse-practitioner.
