Follow up visit was quicker than initial. No wait time. Used ZOCDOC to check in on line prior. Just told office tech my name and sat down for 2 minutes tops. Still has the feel of a small Physician type practice. Thanks

Dr. Montell really sets the bar for quality patient care. I have been to his office two times, and on both visits, I was seen right away and was out the door within 30-35 minutes of my appointment time. Dr. Montell is extremely knowledgeable and efficient yet maintains a compassionate, down-to-earth demeanor. His office staff is stellar as well. I really wish my other doctors' visits were this good!

I went searching on ZocDoc last Friday morning because I was still feeling pain due to Haglund's Deformity. Saw an opening later that day and off I went to see Dr. Montell. Got to the office, waited maybe 5 minutes and saw him immediately. Dr. Montell, was great. Took x-rays and showed me right away what the problem was. The great thing about Dr. Montell is that there's no upselling. He told me surgery should only be done as a last result. Dr. Montell gave me some Anti-inflammatory medication that is starting to work. Dr. Montell was able to answer all my questions I had about my problem. I highly recommend his services.

Dr. Montell is the best orthopedic doctor I know. I have been playing ice hockey and riding motorcycles for 25+ years, and I have seen several doctors over the years. Dr. Montell is very knowledgeable, he is a great communicator and he is patient and compassionate. Generally, I don't like doctors much, but Dr. Montell is the exception....he's exceptional. His office staff is always professional and they are very good about keeping appointment times. Highly recommended.
