Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

In and Out
If you are healthy, ok with non-masking and short on time, this is the doctor for you. Otherwise, steer clear. This review is late and pertains to earlier appointments. Doctor was assigned due to retirement of original primary care. First appointment was taciturn but did review work that prior physician requested. Second appointment was a waste of time as doctor refused to send patient for routine lab work prior to visit. He therefore didn't have any metrics to discuss. Doctor also did not mask when seeing a senior immunocompromised patient in the Spring of 2022. Office did not call to follow up on referrals to specialists. Office did not schedule routine follow up with primary care. Same office, different doctor, what a world of difference.

Great Practice
We changed Dr after our Dr retired. We stayed within the same practice and are very happy with everything. The staff is very helpful Dr Montalvo has made our transition very comfortable . It’s not easy changing Dr after 40 years. We waited no more than 5 or 10 minutes in the waiting room and even less wait time in the exam room. We are very pleased with the care here.

Dr Montalvo went above and beyond to take care of all of my concerns and to make all appropriate referrals - even taking extra time to do a biopsy on a suspicious mole he noticed! He was super patient in explaining things and allowing me time to make sure all of the reasons for my visit were addressed.

I've been a patient of his partner for many years and my experience with front office today was better than usual, and the MA was great. Dr. Montalvo, unfortunately, left me with more questions than answers by the end of our short visit.

Went in for hip pain. Decided on a medication, which he did not tell me anything about. My chart shows I take methotrexate but he failed to tell me not to take his med and methotrexate on the same day. Directed me to physical therapy but no other info. Same doc who years ago diagnosed me with pneumonia which turned out to be heart issues. It would be nice if he got off his pedestal and had a conversation with his patient. This guy is a malpractice suit waiting to happen. I’m done with him.
