Do not go here. He will rip you off. Dr. Montes does not care about anyone’s well being. I was late to an appointment 10 minutes, he dropped me as a client. I literally was there for 4 months and paid over 3,000. There are other dr. In Rockford that won’t do that.

I saw this provider for many years. He is condescending. He doesn't handle crisis situations. Hard to get refills due to him canceling and rescheduling appointments. Front office staff has a very high turn over rate. You might get 5 mins out of a scheduled 20min appointment. He's not easy to talk...more

I had an intake appointment with Dr. Montes. He was very condescending in his tone. And he disagreed with a former diagnosis of social phobia and was dismissive of comments that I had made to support the diagnosis...was even argumentative; I shouldn't have to feel as if I need to defend a past...more

Attentive, expressed care and concern, expressed desire for me to get well...all his interactions with me leave me feeling hopeful and heard. I have had many psychiatrists and Dr Montes and one other are the only ones I would recommend to a friend. You can tell Dr Montes cares about people.

I recently ran out of the SSRI that Dr Montes prescribed. I called almost a week ago to have the rx refilled. It STILL has not been called in and I leave tomorrow to travel overseas. I experience severe discontinuation symptoms if I stop my med suddenly. I was able to speak to the answering service...more
