One Star

At first she was pretty good but after the 3rd or so time calling for an appointment (there are 3 people in my house that see her) she was never available to see patients. She is either out of town all of the time or she is closing early. Not at all a good primary doctor because she can never see you. Will be switching my 3 in this house over to Roper care. Worst Dr experience ever

Excellent pick

I was new to area and needed a family dr. I choose DR. Montonya and I'm glad I did. She is very thorough and she spend time with you without rushing. I feel very comfortable with her. She breaks things down so you can understand and she answer your questions. She is very nice and caring. She is great!!!!!!
