in Richmond, KY |
Dr. Montgomery is very involved in the entire process. Very personable and easy to work with. He did numerous tests to try and avoid invasive surgery and explained everything he was doing fully. After surgery he checked on me every day in addition to the resident doctor's checkup. I would highly recommend.
Wonderful bedside. Took great care of mom. Answered every question. Really cared about her on her situation.
