What People Say About Dr. Jose Montes-Rivera, MD
Reply
Dr Montes-Rivera is one of the best newer doctors I’ve ever encountered. I feel as if he actually loves his job and cares. He doesn’t just make you feel like a number. He takes his time, he’ll even let you whine and complain about life in general ?? He’s is very knowledge and uses his heart along with his brain to treat you.

He went above and beyond. He spent nearly an hour and a half explaining all of the test he would be running. On subsequent visits, he alays asks about any changes, gives a very thorough exam, and runs memory tests each time. Highly recommended!
