    I was in search of a new primary care Dr for myself and family. I met with Dr Efraim Kessous today and decided within minutes that He was ideal for numerous reasons. He understands and listens to what's really going on in your life and at the same time has the ability to communicate medically what's the best course of action to take. I would strongly recommend Dr Kessous on all levels!!!

    Ever since I switched Dr. Kessous to be my primary physician, It has been proven time after time that it has been the one of the best decisions that I have ever made, and THAT is a very bold statement! Dr. Kessous, Norma, and Jennifer have seen me in some of my worst moments and have made it THERE duty to make sure that I am well take care of, and that all of my questions are being answered. I would recommend Montgomery Medical Group to every body! I feel very blessed!!! :-)
