Dr. Montgomery and his staff are very friendly and professional. I had surgery on my arm from a fall which required putting a metal plate. The injury was severe but thanks to Dr. Montgomery I healed quickly and I have full use of my arm.

went in for a second opinion on my ankle and elbow, and had a nice time there. They really show that they care. They are all wonderful and kind there. He take the time with you that is needed, listens to you and answers all your questions. wonderful place go go, my only mistake was not finding out about him and going to him first. Would love to be a patient of his and will probably go straight to him if I ever have any other orthopedic needs. The dr. and all his staff are wonderful. Thanks your your help and such a great experience there.

Dr. Montgomery and his staff were very professional and caring. They took excellent care of my needs after a total knee replacement. After 3 months I was completely healed and back to doing all activities. I highly recommend him.

Two months since my TKR and I am extremely pleased with my left total knee replacement! His staff is the best; always friendly, professional, and answers all questions when asked. As far as his surgical ability......I am quite pleased and will have Dr. Montgomery and Angela (his N.P.T.) do my right knee soon after my left knee fully recovers.

I waited a little over a year to post this review to include post surgery care. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Montgomery's medical services and staff. Recovery was quick, total R & L knee replacement. Had surgeries 6 months apart and could not ask for better results Staff is highly knowledgeable, quick, and very professional. As for Dr. Montgomery, very professional, good bedside manner and takes the time to explain things so I could understand them. Highly recommended by me and RN wife.

Dr Montgomery repaired my torn rotator cuff last December 4 and he did an amazing job. Still a little sore but looks like its going to be like new. His office is amazing and his expertise must be top shelf because he found some strange things happening in my shoulder but was able to take care of it and complete a great job. If I ever have another need for an orthopedic surgeon, I will definitely return to this same "PRO".
