Went today because my 14 month old got tubes in her ears last monday and she has been running a fever since then, for a full week! She needed tubes because she had been treated 6 times for ear infections, they kept coming back. Now heres my complaint, today dr monte told me that ear infections dont cause fevers(which was usually her only noticable symptom during each ear infection). Also he said her fever she had since the tube surgery was unrelated and that it was probably a cold or strep or something else even though she had no signs that she was sick besides a fever, same as all her ear infections. He did say that there was blood around the tubes but they were clear so they were fine( the day b4 her pediatrician saw a clotted blood blockage but i assume it fell out?) and to have a follow up in 5 months. No thank you, if she needs tubes again i am going elsewhere. Also he only saw us like a minute.

I had suffered with serious sinus issues, with non-stop coughing for 34 days. After seeing 3 doctors, his Rx reduced thw cougjing in just 2 days, & stopped the coughing in 4 days. He was professional & answered my questions. I like!! I am 63 yrs old.

Today was my second visit to Dr. Monte, each for a different issue. I was very satisfied with the exam and diagnosis for each problem. Dr. Monte’s quiet personality might come across as a negative to some, but to me, getting to the root of my problem is a priority. I recommended him to my daughter and she has used him for different ENT issues. She has had good experiences, too.

He was extremely short with us. He did not take the time to even look at my child's chart from our PCP to see the issues he had been having for several months. He didn't take the time to listen to our issues or concerns and wouldn't do what our PCP had recommended he needed. We went to another ENT doctor and he said we did need done what the PCP had recommended because we had exhausted every medical option there was. Dr. Monte has an air to him that he thinks he's better than everyone else.

Dr. Monte has to be the worst October I've ever been to. He's vey non-personable, doesn't let the patient explain or have any input . He did nothing for me other than ordering tests that I could have told him I'd already had done. He gets a ZERO from me.

Staff is not friendly--rather short with patients. Dr. is extremely cold and indifferent and makes a person feel like he or she has been referred by inferior people who do not know nearly as much as he does. Will not return. Another family member had been referred by our PCP and his experience was similar to mine. Will not go back.

Recently I was referred to Dr. Monte. His office staff was very helpful in getting me set up with an initial appointment. Dr. Monte told me my condition would require a procedure which could be done by him in the clinic. He explained the procedure and answered my questions. I was apprehensive at first, but Dr. Monte is very knowledgeable and quickly gained my trust. The procedure was completed quickly and painlessly. I am very impressed by Dr. Monte's skill and I highly recommend him.

I took my 3 year old to Dr. Monte because he was recommended to me and I'm so glad I did. Dr. Monte was great with him, and my son is normally terrified of doctors. In fact, they shook hands when we were leaving. I was thrilled! I was very satisfied with Dr. Monte's diagnosis of my son's condition, and the treatment he prescribed. I will go back to Dr. Monte and I will recommend him to my family and friends who need a qualified ENT doctor.
