I have so far had 5 surgeries with Dr. Montgomery. He and his staff have been excellent. I have never had problems with any of my three joint replacements, and I would highly recommend him for orthopedic surgery. Most of his staff have been with him for years which speaks volumes.

I found Dr. Montgomery to be a caring and competent physician who goes about his work in a meticulous manner. My wife and I both had procedures in 2017 and were very satisfied with the outcome.

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
