Dr. Montalbano did back surgery for me and I couldn't be happier. The outcome was better than I could ask for. His office personally is so friendly and caring. I have enjoyed going for office visits as he is very straight forward and his office nurse Deb is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Don't expect Dr Paul Montalblano to spend much time with you. Usually over schedules. He only sees patience once per week and does procedures the rest of the week. Lots of other very reputable surgeons to choose from in the Treasure Valley.
