Dr Montgomery did a complete hip replacement a year ago - it was the best thing that I could have done - he and his staff took complete care of me - I would and do recommend him very highly - if I ever need any type of joint work in the future, he will be the one to do it

I feel truly blessed that Dr. Montgomery and his wonderful staff are in charge of my care. From my first visit here after a sudden accident, everyone has been so kind and caring. Anyone in need of orthopedic issues should definitely consider Dr. Montgomery as their first choice!
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Pretty much a waste of 50.00. Saw me for two minutes and moved me on out. I had seen another Dr in his office and Im thinking he felt I was trying to get a different second opinion. Did not take any time with me at tall.

Great guy, took his time and listened to me. Didn't waste my money!

I had suffered with a knee problem since I was 18 years old and had meniscus removed in Lubbock, TX when I was in college. After 47 years, I decided it was finally time to see about knee replacement. I contacted Dr. Montgomery and had him perform the replacement in 2014. I received excellent care and just had my 3 year follow up. He and his staff are very caring and definitely concerned about the patient. I would strongly recommend Dr. Montgomery for any orthopedic needs.

I was initially referred to the Core institute in Lafayette. I had previously been there for my back but they just couldn't get it together and I sought out a referral from my chiropractic provider because I trust her and her opinions. She suggested Dr. Montgomery. I called and got right in. The staff was super to work with and all are very sweet ladies. I have seen Dr Montgomery many tines and will continue to go back as needed. I love his staff and him and that's hard to find these days.

Dr. Montgomery has been my orthopedist for many years and has treated a variety of ailments and injuries during that time, including 2 surgeries. I have always found he and his staff efficient and professional. Since he has his own x-ray equipment and staff onsite, you can get a review and diagnosis of your problem immediately. This immediacy of diagnosis means any treatment, if needed, can begin at once. His staff has always attempted to schedule an appointment very quickly, depending on need

Work was top notch and the results were better than I expected. Side effects were best case you could expect. I am scheduling the other knee today and hope for the same good results.

Dr. Montgomery's nurse was knowledgeable and personable as well as courteous! The entire staff was friendly and helpful! Dr. Montgomery was friendly, efficient and diagnosed quickly after checking out my knee!

My son was injured during a Sunday baseball game and Dr Montgomery staff was very friendly and able to get my son seen on the Monday. Everyone was welcoming, the wait time was minimal, the doctor was very thorough. I recommend Dr Montgomery for any orthopedic needs!
in Maurice, LA |
Office staff was very nice and I didn't feel rushed through. Was able to schedule an appointment for me within a day of calling them.
in Lafayette, LA |
staff is extremely cordial, wait time is minimal, and Dr. Montgomery very attentive to your problem and wonderful disposition.
Don't have any...but his office staff did not allow my wife, a school teacher, to see him because she misplaced her wallet...she offered for me to take a picture of the card and send it over...she refused saying she couldn't see the doctor unless her insurance card was scanned into the chart....my wife took time off of work to make this appt....our toddler is home sick which was probably the reason she misplaced her wallet, We have very good health insurance with LPSS. Very poor cust. service
in Lafayette, LA |
Excellent!! Loved everything. Everyone in the office is very courteous, and very helpful. Very Professional and Proficient.
