By far, the worst practice I have ever dealt with. I was seen for an IUD placement that I verified prior to the visit would be covered at 100% with the receptionist I booked the appointment with as well as my insurance. The experience itself was experience was awful. At my follow up visit a week after I was told it wasn’t placed properly and had to be removed the same day. I was also given a prescription for emergency contraceptive by the physician I saw at the visit. I was told I could schedule a visit to try again but refused because of how horrible the first attempt was. The office billed out a ton of different line items to my insurance (who reviewed them and even agreed that they weren’t billed correctly) and something that was supposed to be covered at 100% ended up with me being responsible for an over $800 bill when I didn’t even get what I originally went to the office for. I tried to discuss this with them multiple times but the office staff is rude and only care about money. They refuse to work with people although they will claim that’s what they are trying to do. They have incorrectly billed multiple times and then sent me to a collections agency. After all of this I also found out that Dr Montanarella has been involved in with a medical misconduct lawsuit. If I had known any of this I would have never went to this office. Do yourself a favor, stay FAR away from this place.
Needed an ablation procedure and thought I was in good hands, with someone who was giving me the best advice. Was told it was a quick and minimally painful procedure that could most easily be done in the office with local anesthetic. . Sounded much better than I expected, thinking I'd need a one-day surgical center sort of thing, so I happily agreed. The procedure was NOT quick, nor easy. Though I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, I can say that this was the most painful thing I've had done...about 15 minutes of cauterizing (burning) the lining of the uterus with only a local shot to the cervix. No pain control other than a pre-surgery pain pill and nurses standing on either side of me telling me to squeeze their hands to help calm me. I then had horrible post- procedure stomach pain and fever, leading me back to the office for IV fluids and on to a CT scan to be sure she hadn't perforated the uterus. Luckily, that was not the case, but I had contracted an infection, probably because it should have been done in a sterile setting. I had the impression it was minimally invasive, or I'd never had agreed to have it done in the office- in an ordinary clinic room, not any sort of special procedure room! If they knew it was going to be like this, why on earth was this done at the office??? BECAUSE she had lost her privileges at the hospital! This was something I found out long after the fact by a third party and I was completely shocked, feeling a bit duped. Could have turned out much worse and I felt lucky to be done with it. Fast forward a year and I was having new issues with bleeding. Now have found out I have severe scarring from the procedure, leading to new problems. Just amazed at how unprofessional the whole situation has been and most definitely found a new doctor a long time ago. Beware. Dr. M seems very kind and knowledgeable, but in the end I feel I was manipulated.
Um by all means, google it as the review below says but it's not the way this angry person is making it sound. No one was 'forced' into anything, the article is really clear that the operation was done with consent of both parents AND the child's pediatrician. Not really that big a deal actually, if you don't like the doctor that's fine but don't spread lies out of bitterness that you didn't read the paper work they gave you on your first visit that clearly said you would have a canclation fee if cancled in less than 24 hours notice
