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

my wife and daughters and granddaughter have been going to Dr. Montoya for over 25 years now. she is an excellent doctor, but more than that, she is compassionate, kind and really cares about her patients. thank you Dr. Montoya,

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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
