Testimonials

With time, care, education, ease, and humor Dr. Claire Putman fitted me with a pessary. This little plastic device that looks like a diaphragm changed my life. If you’re like me and have bladder leakage problems it could change yours too. Now I do not leak urine at all! No more embarrassment. I feel free to work out, run, hike our mountains, backcountry ski, dance, shovel snow, and even jump on the trampoline with my kids! I had been other places in town and had been improperly fitted. Dr. Claire Putnam really is our best option in the valley.

I met Dr. Putnam at Kaiser for an annual exam. She was professional and also very warm and managed to make a time constrained visit seem unrushed. I have since had the privilege of working with her in my role as a Certified Nurse Midwife in California. She is a wonderful colleague and a joy to work with. She truly cares about women and their families and is an excellent physician. Montana women are very fortunate to have such a skilled and compassionate provider!

“I can’t thank Dr. Putnam enough for all of her support, kindness and wisdom figuring out some of my female stuff!  I feel so lucky to have her help and am feeling happier and more confident knowing that I have an amazing doctor that has my back!” 

A.S.

“I am so lucky I found Dr. Putnam at Nova!  She offered me options that weren’t give to me when I saw another physician.  Because of her, I made the right decision for me, ended up paying much less, and had great care!  And I love her beautiful office–cute, private and comfortable!”
