Wow! From the moment I met Dr. Montgomery this summer I felt as if I had found the right surgeon. Her office is well run as Is her surgical team. She is personable, even with a mask on, she comes across as caring. She explains the procedures clearly, gives you plenty of time during your office visit and is a great surgeon. I am healing quickly and I have every confidence that she will be there for me through the entire treatment phase as well. Whenever I spoke with a nurse or tech, they assured me that I had made the right choice.

I started off my BC ordeal at a different hospital and a different surgeon after being diagnosed with ILC- 5mm big- the size of a pea. The surgeon said I needed a mastectomy & to pick out a plastic surgeon. All for a 5mm tumor? I am well endowed & this seemed drastic. I asked about a lumpectomy & surgeon said she would NOT recommend it. So I said that I was going to go for a 2nd opinion & all that surgeon did was talk about Dr. Montgomery-for a good 20 minutes. I said to myself, I need to meet this Dr. Montgomery. I am glad I did! I switched doctors on the spot after meeting her! Dr. Montgomery IS amazing! Great sense of humor, confident & knowledgeable in course of treatment- told me that I was the perfect case for a lumpectomy and assured me that post-op "my girls" would look the same as before surgery and they do! She is prompt, office staff is courteous and polite. Cancer is a TERRIFYING thing, but she put me at ease and made it not so scary. SO THANKFUL FOR DR. MONTGOMERY!

She is a very erudite physician. She is clear and precise in her evaluations. She also instills confidence and trust in you when you are going through a crisis in your life. Most of all she is a skilled physician. After seeing other physicians she saved me from a more complex and dramatic surgery. Her alternate procedure was and continues to be the successful approach. I have and will recommend other woman to her.

Post 4 yrs after my Breast Surgery, I was given the thumbs up on an annual visit instead of 6 months. Big! Dr. Montgomery thru my diagnosis, options were explained and questions were answered. She helped me process and accept. She answered my questions throughly and never once did I feel rushed. I have and will continue to recommend her to any woman who asks for guidance.

I am very lucky to have Dr.Montgomery as my breast surgeon. Dr. Montgomery is an expert in her specialty and her decision is always towards patients benefits. Staff in the office are always helpful and courteous. I have recommended Dr. Montgomery to my friends who were at loss when their family or friend had to face breast issue.
