SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Well trained and caring.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

The best service and care received.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

The care provider does good work but is very busy. I would have been more comfortable with the final outcome if there had been a clearer presentation of my options. This was clarified after the surgery, not before.

I really felt the importance of my visit. They slowed/provided me w/great care from registering to see the eye doctor and to all my telephone conversation.

Dr Montague impressed me as a caring physician well skilled in the art & science of medicine. Her competence was reassuring.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Everybody seemed to be running to get to the next patient. Dr. Montague seemed fine ... but she fell into the trap of just entering data into the computer in the exam room. She never asked me any questions, she never asked me if I had any questions, mainly: she never said any word to me about the results of the examination.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I have already recommended Dr Montague to a friend who was inquiring about my procedure since I raved about the care and the results of my own experience. Thank you, Dr. Montague!!
