This being the Monday afternoon following Thanksgiving, I was expecting a bit of a wait, but it was all worthwhile. In stark contrast to the alarmist and unsympathetic demeanor of my previous physician who recommended surgery for my brokencollar bone literally as I entered his office, Dr. Montalbano was both optimistic and caring, not to mention having used equipment far more sophisticated than what I witnessed at the previous office. At this point, he sees the collar bone recovering over a reasonable period of time, and was not hell bent on performing any surgery. On that front, his integrity matches his compassion and professionalism. I most highly recommend the office of Dr. Montalbano.

Doctor was good and professional but the staff was unprofessional. I asked them many times to make sure that the doctor is in-network. They said yes and then they billed me a big amount. Very unprofessional.

Dr. Mantalbano was quite cold - his bedside manner was severely lacking. He was really short with me, and made me feel silly for asking questions. The women who work in his office are incredibly rude - one put me onhold for 10 minutes, another promised to call me back and never did; they all spoke to me like they were doing me some grand favor by talking to me. I was very unimpressed by their unprofessional behavior.

Waited for 2 hours and 15 mins...from talking to other patients in the waiting room, discovered that they double booked all the appointments...when I finally saw the doctor there was no apology for making me wait for two hours and within a minute of poking at my knee he told me I needed an MRI...Its all about the money and I wouldn't send my worst enemy to these crooks.

Saw this doctor for the first time for some hand pain. He looked at my hands but didn't take any xrays. Instead he listed a number of diseases that I could have and told me to go to a lab fora blood test (his nurses couldn't take my blood in the office). I thought the appointment was a bit strange so went for a second opinion to a different doctor. The other doctor did a through exam and took xrays. The other doctor also recommended things I could try before going further (none of which involved a blood test). Whats worse? This doctor charged me twice as much as the other doctor and did half the work! I feel like I was overcharged and will never come here again.

I have been going to this office for several years. Sometimes I see Dr Montalbano & sometimes the other doctors or the PA. In all cases, I have been very happy with the level of care. They have been thorough, informativerespectful & gentle. Wait time can vary a lot from visit to visit, however. Despite that fact, I highly recommend the practice.
