I have not seen him in about 15 years and he fired me as a patient. I’ve never heard of this before. I had to go and get my medical records. I had gone to his office several times due to a knee issue and was sitting in the waiting room for an hour and a half. Mind you it was over an hour wait every time I went. I thought that it was extremely excessive and said to the nurse that if they’re that far behind on scheduling they should reach out to the patients and give them another option instead of having them sit there for an extended period of time. She said I’m sorry that’s just the way it goes. When I finally got called into the exam room and met with the tech who was an extremely nice man I explained my dismay to him and he said why dont you speak to the doctor about it. Big mistake !! When I questioned Montijo And said that my time was just as valuable he got completely obnoxious and unprofessional and irate & said he would not see me and wasn’t able to see another dr either

Dr. Harvey Montijo has the worst bedside manner of any Dr I have ever felt with in my 70 yrs. He replaced my right knee and I have had more pain after the surgery than before. He was rude and condescending. He got very angry at me because I chose to go to a rehabilitation center after the surgery instead of going home. Had I gone home I would have been stuck in a 2nd for apt where I lived by myself. Since I would not do as he said he sent me to the worst rehabilitation he could find even though there was a bed available at the rehab I chose and my insurance covered it. After the surgery I never saw him again. When I went to his office for follow up he made it a point to only have me seen by his assistant. Horrible experience all the way around.

Nothing but great things about Dr. Montijo. He and his team replaced my left hip in 2009. I was 69 years old at the time. I have never had any problem with my new hip. My recovery time was very fast, I know he is always using the latest technology. I recommended Dr. Montijo and give him a grade above 5 stars. Thank you Dr. Montijo you changed my life.
