My son considers this doctor his friend because he takes his time to make him feel comfortable and that's rare because my son is extremely shy. Great doctor.

We had to wait for more than an hour & a half. Not so good when you're going for your children's check up. Doctor is good but the wait is ridiculous . After a while all you hear is people complaining about the wait time.

Dr. Montes is great! He explains everything thoroughly, but usually seems rushed and does not really ask any well being questions about my daughter. Also, I don't like the fact that this clinic weighs my child and takes height of herwith her clothes and shoes on. Seems innacurate. Lastly, immunization card has been missing shots and not fixed until brought to their attention. I wouldn't want my baby to get double shots when not needed.

Alejandro Montes is a very great, great Doctor! I am extremely happy that he has been seeing my 2 boys since day one! I'm very disappointed with Roxanne, which is the Physician that unfortunately represent Montes Medical. She does not takethe time to actually check her patients the way it's supposed to be done, very intimating. She never looks happy, looks like she's over her job, and just wants to get every single patient done and over with. But she won't stop me from continuing to visit in the future, because as long as Doctor Montes is there, we will gladly come back for check ups. ??????

Dr. Montes is great, I love that he interacts with my girls and makes them feel comfortable. From day one I felt I could trust his judgement and knowledge as my daughters pediatrician. If I have any concerns Dr. Montes isvery good at answering questions and explaining what is going on. The PA's are great alternatives when Dr. Montes is not available. His staff is friendly and very helpful, especially Marcia and Diana (the office manager). I definitely recommend Dr. Montes to others.

Dr. Montes is always amazing he is very good with my daughter and always open to listening to any concerns and questions we have. it was the girl who took us to the back who was horrible!!!! Idk if she's astudent or new or what but first she weighed my daughter wrong and then when she went to give her shots at the end of our visit she almost stuck my daughter 2 times with the same syringe and she was very rough when trying to hold my daughter down. . She was clearly not confident yet and needed to be supervised. I believe her name was Alex. She a also did not take my daughters hemoglobin at the beginning of the visit and then told the dr she did and followed up saying my daughter had it done in February, which was all inaccurate. Usually we have an amazing experience I was so dissatisfied and disappointed this visit.

My whole family has been sick since 02/01 I went in with half of them i was told that they had a virus im,back again with them with eye infections URI and he still did not give my son antibiotics Iwork in the medical field I would never want to give my children medication and make them resistant to none but I believe he should of scoped my child out a lil more I ended up at urgent care and they gave him antibiotics so I believe we wasted valuable time for one another I told him I was taking my service some were else and he told me to do as I please .

This place is gross. I will not be going back ever. The place looks like a prison kids screaming like animals because there's nothing to distract them. With the Dr. old idk if he was busy that day or having abad day but he rushed and just seemed over it. I will not be going back. I also don't like that the place sees everyone and their mother I want an office that only sees children

He was very polite, which is uncommon with Medi-Cal doctors in my experience. My son does not like the doctors and he was screaming and crying and Dr. Montes was very calm about the situation. I highly recommend him to otherparents. I did have an issue with the nurses at the front desk. One of the girls was rude and made it clear that she was either having a bad day or that she just didn't like her job.
