Verified Patient Reviews
I think he and the staff so far have been fantastic.
Staff was very professional and attentive.
Professional and friendly environment. Willingness to answer questions and provide additional referals
I found Dr. Montalbano to be a caring professional, with vast knowledge concerning my knee problem. He took all the time needed to explain what his diagnosis would be and any future treatment. He indicated if I need his services to please call his office. He was thorough with his exam and explained my course of treatment. Robert S.
Dr. Montalbano is a great doctor. This was a follow-up and I went to get an MRI for more information.
He was totally professional and he is taking one step at a time. He doesn't jump to conclusions. I like that!!! Barbara T.
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 broken collar 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.
Love the fact that Dr. Montalbano really knows athletes and he treated my daughter as such.
Dr Montalbano was a very attentive during my visit. He took the time to answer all my questions and was very polite and kind. I was there for a knee issue and he performed an ultrasound and explained everything he saw. I highly recommend him.
The assistant and the doctor were both friendly and thorough. I would recommend this doctor without hesitation. It was a friendly office and did not feel rushed.
Very professional modern office, iPad for filling out forms. Multiple large screen t.v.'s , coffee, water,snacks make waiting area comfortable. Professional staff, X-ray and MRI on site.
Wait time can vary quite a bit. But thee doctors and PA are thorough, professional and pleasant to deal with. I trust them becuase I have gotten good care.
Dr. Montalbano is a very good doctor but the office staff is the worst. You have some of the girls willing to do anything to help you and than you have others that should look for another job.
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 with in 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.
They cancelled and reschedule for June 4 @ 10:30 Thank u
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 on hold 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.
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.
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, informative respectful & gentle. Wait time can vary a lot from visit to visit, however. Despite that fact, I highly recommend the practice.
The doctor didn't seem to listen to my concerns. Once I said I was a runner, he seemed to make up his mind as to what my issue was.
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 for a 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 experienced the expected professionalism that I have come to expect from this doctor and his staff. Treatment and diagnosis were promptly and expertly done and I had no questions or anxieties.
It was great
Offices were clean and visually pleasing. Was a bit confusing figuring what which entrance to use to locate the office (have to use the north door rather than the south). Staff was fine though not great. Dr. Montalbano was professional and courteous.
The girls were very polite answered all my questions accordingly. Made me feel comfortable. The doctor was very precised with what ever was done in his office explain the details.
Pleasant. Besides my pain, he got my problem. Imediatly. Great Dr. And a nice guy.
I saw the PA Michelle...
Friendly,caring staff. My wait time was about 10 minutes. Very pleased with overall experience. I'm continuing with rehab and will be reexamined in a month.
It was professional and well organized
Dr. Montalbano was great. However, the office staff put us in for an appointment with his physician's assistant despite twice specifically requesting to be seen by Dr. Montalbano. Consequently, we had to wait so that they could fit us in to their bookings.
Staff and doctor were very professional, friendly, and helpful.
i was impressed with the employees and the efficiency .the Doctor was very professional but also down to earth and informative.
They were very efficient. Took their time with my daughter and explained their findings.
Glad I went. Doctor knew exactly what to do for my broken hand. Better than treatment in Staten Island hospital ER
Staff are very professional. It's a pleasant visit.
Good, and Thorough

This is the most organized office I have ever been to.

It went pretty well, he was very patient while listening to my concerns and I would definitely recommend him.
Beautiful office setting, very pleasant and friendly staff, convenience that all can be done in one setting, doctor visit, scans, X-rays and physical therapy. Thank you.
Good doctor, very thorough.
I have found Dr. M and his associates to be friendly, thorough and capable. I feel I have gotten good treatment and good advice about keeping fit. The only issue is wait time, which is very variable. Sometimes I am seen quickly and other times, the wait was lengthy. Despite this, I recommend the practice.
My visit with Dr. Montalbano was a pleasant experience. He is very professional and has wonderful bed side manners, which made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions and I will continue to see him, until my problem is solved. Also, his staff gets a heads up.
All went well. Just the wait. What's the point of an appointment if I still have to wait an hour to see the doctor?
I saw Dr. Savarino, and he was so nice as well as the staff. I would highly recommend.
Love them all

pleasant, ans the questions, was happy with the service
The office is ran very efficiently! Check-in could have been completed online prior to the visit. The check-in process at the office was easy and tech-based. The Dr. Assistant introduced her self and took all pertinent information down for Dr. Montalbano's review. When seen by Dr. Montalbano he was patient and couteous. He explained the possibile problems with my knee and answered any questions I had. I need to return for a follow up due to insurance regulations, but am looking forward to another visit.
Well mannered professional. Great interaction with patients. Tests performed onsite and done immediately. Aside from short wait time overall good experience
He was patient and listened careful to what I had to say about my injury. He gave a choice of treatment and involved me in the decision making about my treatment. Made you feel very comfortable. Staff was very nice and efficient. Did not have to wait long to see the docotr.
I am an exsisting patient. I returned for a reason
Everyone in the office was great.
Straight to the point without feeling rushed. Exactly what I want from a doctor.

It was his assistant ,
Dr. Montalbano was very professional, courteous and had a demonstrated expertise. Dr. Montalbano's office also had a great ambiance with an interesting collection of contemporary artwork.
This office is very popular and successful so some days you will have to wait. The staff is always professional and prompt to assist.
Very nice, reassuring, and informative.
I couldnt believe the interest they all had in this first time patient. I was seen by dr. Savarino for the initial exam, then was followed by an overview by Dr. Montabello. Everyone in the office was concerned and helpful. this is the place to go if you want people who want to help you. Top notch. Kudos Kudos Thank you. Thank you.
my questions were answered and very informative. I would recommend this office to anyone need a specialist. Front Office was professional and friendly.
The office seems pretty efficient and up to date in technology. The wait was as expected, not too bad if you go early enough. (It was extremely crowded when I left.) I was in and out within 2 hours. Dr. Montalbano was pleasant and his staff were attentive and professional. I have not yet been back for a follow up visit but I'm confident that he will be able to help with my back pain.
Great guy. Super professional and did an amazing job for me. Broke my foot in Bahamas, and he and his staff took great care of me. His office is state of the art and his staff is extremely professional and well qualified. I highly recommend him.
short,simple to the point.
It is a very modern practice with an excellent and helpful staff. The Doctor is extremely professional, has a wonderful "bedside manner" and is extremely easy to understand and talk to. I was very impressed with the entire operation and would also return when the need arises.
Waiting time has to be adjusted to fit into everybody's norm.
thorough and professional,
Dr. Montalbano was wonderful. He listened to my complaints, explained in detail what he felt may be the problem and how to correct same and was very thorough. I would definitely recommend him to others.
