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.

At first she was good to go seeing my husband and 2 of my children but then as I would call to make appointments for any of them she was NEVER available. She is either always closing early or out of town for some reason, always an excuse. The answer we get from someone there is go to our extended care. Why have a primary care provider if she in never available, that doesn't form a doctor patient relationship My family will be moving over to Roper where they have time for patients

Dr. Montoya listens carefully to all questions and descriptions. She offers explanations and possible causes of problems. Together we select an appropriate testing or treatment. She does not rush through appointments and is not condescending or accusatory in her communications. Her staff is cheerful and pleasant. They are conveniently located in the center of town. I arrived on time and waited only 3 minutes before my appointment began.
