Personable doctor

Dr Montgomery was very helpful, caring, and straight forward. He made us feel comfortable and talked to us as people and not just another patient all robot in and out like. I had to call him after hours and he talked to me and was very understanding and didn't have us wait to come to him he gave us other options if we needed to see someone sooner! We went to the hospital and he personally and one of his nurses called to check in with us and we weren't even technically his patient yet

I was a hospital Respiratory Therapist and currently a patient of Dr. Montgomery, awaiting surgery. If you want dewy eyed love get a dog. If you want top notch, honest surgical care get a surgeon who's honest with you and knows what he's doing. Dr. Montgomery is the later.

I think the world of Dr. Montgomery! Even though the wait times can be lengthy at times, if you want the best, it's worth the wait! I had a couple high risk surgeries, C3-C7, and he totally put me at ease, because I had full confidence in his ability. He was totally upfront with me. He was right on the money regarding pain, recovery, everything. He operated on my husbands back several years prior, and he's still doing wonderful. I'd trust him with any future surgical needs I might have, but judging by the great job he did, it's not likely I'll be seeing him again, anytime soon:)

As long as you stay on top of things.....

Initial waiting was 2.5 hours long. Service after initial eval has been great, direct and without much wait. Kind an courteous. I recommend that if you want it that way that you are proactive and reach out to the staff as nicely as possible. They are super busy all of the time yet took the time to locate information and talk to insurance companies for me. My surgery was excellent and I am really please with the outcome. Dr. Montgomery is very nice and explained all my issues. Excellent surgeon.
