What People Say About Dr. Richard Montgomery, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
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.
