Ankle, Foot, Trauma

Dr. DuMontier was born and raised in Northwest Montana. His family owned a small ranch where he was exposed to farming and ranching. He also enjoyed the outdoor recreation that Montana offered.

He attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he received a B.A. in Biology and experienced life in a big city.

He attended medical school at the University of Washington as part of the WAMI program. He spent his first year in Montana and the remainder in Seattle. After receiving his Doctor of Medicine degree, he completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Washington in Seattle. It was during residency training that his interest in Trauma and Foot & Ankle was fostered by several outstanding mentors in those specialties.

He completed fellowship specialty training in Foot & Ankle surgery in Pontiac, MI with Art Manoli II MD. This provided well rounded training that complemented his previous Seattle education.

He worked in Ronan, MT for 4 years doing general orthopaedics. He then moved to Kalispell, MT where his practice evolved to be more sub-specialized. Initially with a mixture of Trauma and Foot & Ankle, and gradually shifting to primarily Foot & Ankle.

He joined Olympia Orthopaedic Associates in 2014 to establish a Foot & Ankle Center. His professional interests include complex trauma to the lower extremities and reconstruction of post-traumatic and arthritic deformities. He also specializes in ankle replacements. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.

Dr. DuMontier is married and has three children. They are excited to be in the Olympia area. He enjoys sailing, running, classic cars, and spending time with his family.

Dr. DuMontier has been very pleasant to work with. He is very knowledgable and addresses any issues I have presented directly to him. However, the staff needs to work on some communication with patients. I have never had surgery before, so the information given to me was important, and I was careful to take the instructions as directed to me by staff. But it was not conveyed to me that I would need to call so far in advance to renew a prescription for the post-op pain meds, which in fact left me needing to call the next day after receiving the few they would prescribe. There is also poor callback when leaving a request on the nurse's phone answering machine. There were at least 2 occasions when I had to call and leave a message, and no one ever called me back. There was one other time when I did call, leave a message, and a call was returned to me, but well after the time indicated on the voice message (I believe the machine said there would be a call returned 24-48 hours later, but I did not receive this call back until 4 days later - I was told the machine I left my message on was for a person who was actually on vacation...would have been nice to not have been transferred to this person instead of wondering what I am supposed to do in the meantime and hearing nothing from anyone). Clearer - PRINTED - instructions would be nice, regarding prescription renewal and recommended exercises; callbacks would certainly be appreciated, especially when promised. Communication is important, and I do feel the clinicians lack this. Things have improved, but moreso because I am only dealing directly with Dr. DuMontier himself in my follow-ups. I don't like voicing complaints, but I do feel these things should be addressed and amended for the next patient who comes along and does not receive clear communication. Thank you.
