I was referred to Dr Montilla by my PCP after he noticed a "bump" on my right arm, Dr. Montilla took that thing off without any pain at all during my first appointment ..we are not talking about a small procedure, I have about 20 stitches where he removed what he believes is a basal cell carcinoma...he sent the piece of meat out to get examined to verify that it was ... either way he is a gentleman and a very gentle and thorough Doctor Thanks Doc !!

I can’t say enough about my experience with Dr.Montilla. I had trauma to my nose years ago, and met with him to discuss a septo-rhinoplasty procedure. From the initial consultation to post op I felt extremely confident in his ability to give me the results I wanted- and I really did feel he had my best interest every step of the way. The results speak for themself! Dr.Montilla explained every part of the surgery and answered every question I had(multiple times). I’m thankful for his expertise and helping me feel more confident. If you need any sort of plastic surgery done I know you will be in good hands with him and his wonderful team!

No. Not satified with Doctor or surgery. Was not informed by PA or Dr that there was another procedure for my carpel tunnel issue. Thought I was having procedure done on my wrist and not my palm. Doctor marked palm after I was partly sedated. Saw doctor for a total of maybe 5 minutes pre and post surgery. Basically felt like a meat market, doctor doing surgeries every 10 to 15 minutes. Surgery hasn't helped problem, that may not even be carpal tunnel (possibly pain from stenosis in neck). Still having ongoing issues with surgery site. Don't recommend Dr Montilla for this procedure and would not have him operate on my other wrist.

I can’t possibly say enough about Dr Montilla and his staff. What a great experience! From my initial consultation to the surgery and recovery, I never felt alone. Dr Montilla is so calm and very detail oriented. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know. He was very easy to talk to and work with. From the 1st time I met him, I knew I could trust him with this journey and what a great decision I made! He knows his stuff so you’re never really in doubt about anything because he’ll take his time to talk to you about everything especially things you may be uncomfortable about. I had a successful tummy tuck and I’m very happy with the results!

On August 13, Dr. Montilla surgically removed a venous lake from my lip and as of September 2nd, my lip looks amazing. I could not be more satisfied with the results. The work he did on a very visible area was artful and perfect. Beyond his expertise, he is a kind, low key Doctor who doesn’t bring a lot of attention to himself but rather focuses on the quality of the work. The overall tone of any practice begins with the front office. From the very first phone call, back in February, I was impressed with the understanding, patience and support from Jonathan in particular and throughout the process, from the rest of the staff as well. I highly recommend Dr. Montilla for his down to earth, focused approach, his empathetic care, and his excellent skill as a plastic surgeon. I am so grateful to him and his entire practice.

I was sent in for emergency surgery with Dr. Montilla by my dermatologist for a hematoma removal. The hematoma came after melanoma surgery and quickly deteriorated. My deeper wounds bleed a lot. Note to self. After waiting for Dr. Montilla at St Vincent's he arrived after an already long day to a surprise battery of additional patients. He didn't burden me with his already long day but reassured me I would be taken care of and even checked on me a few times in the admitting room and pre-op area. After waking up in the recovery room he was there again, making sure I was doing well. This should be an expected treatment of a patient and we all know Dr's have so little time to spare so I was pleasantly surprised by the attention given. Of note; upon waking and over the next few days I required none of the narcotics prescribed. The previous months' worth of pain was miraculously erased in one short surgery. If there is a downside it is that I can not assign an additional star.

I was referred to Dr Montilla by my Mohs surgeon after having Basel cell removed from under my eye. The wound was larger than I anticipated and I was extremely anxious about the repair. Dr Montilla was patient and kind, explaining everything he was going to do. I had quite a large scar afterwards. He was very reassuring that in a few months it would heal and no one would notice. He answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. He would show me pictures of my progress at each appointment which was also very reassuring. His office staff were all very nice and efficient. My scar is barely visible now and I’m very thankful for that.

The office had no record of my appointment even though I had talked to their office twice the week before. But worse- the doctor was rude and arrogant. Luckily I got a second opinion after he insisted I needed immediate surgery. I didn't...

I needed to have eyelid / eyebrow surgery done as my field of vision was being affected and also being a motorcyclist, this became a priority . A top rated doctor in the greater Boston area repaired (or so I thought) my eyelid years ago and it never came out right. So several years later, I'd had enough with the vision problems. After searching many of the "top" plastic surgeons in my area, none of them offered help for "medical needs" , only cosmetic. Not Dr. Montilla, they said YES, we do help people with medical needs! His schedule person, John, whom I've never met but spoke to several times setting up the procedure got me in faster than I expected and Dr. Montilla did a fantastic job. Prior to the procedure Dr. Montilla went over what needed to be done to make this work, which included brow lifting, unlike the last doc who simply sowed the lid and it never took properly. Dr. Montilla's staff is also quite awesome. You don't have to go to Boston for top care! He's right at St.

Dr. Montilla did my brow lift in June, 2019. He is extremely professional and meticulous. I am extremely happy with the results and would highly recommend him! His office staff is very organized and efficient. Jonathan, in particular, is very helpful and detail oriented. Dr Montilla and his staff were also excellent about answering all questions.

Dr Montilla provided superior cosmetic surgery to a mole that was on my nose for over 15 yrs. I was always self conscious about and and afraid if removed it would leave a big scar and look worse. After just one month, you would never know it was ever there. I have already recommended him to family and friends. Nancy , Ashland MA
