    My wife had been suffering from leg and lower back pain for a year. We were not sure that surgery was the best option but she had tried everything else, including steroidal injections, acupuncture, physical therapy and chiropractic approaches. From our first appointment, Dr. Montgomery was certain that the pain my wife was suffering was due to a stenosis between L5 and S1 vertebrae. But he could not guarantee that his surgery would eradicate 100% of the pain . After consultation with other surgeons and specialists, we concluded that Dr. Montgomery’s diagnosis was correct and his surgical approach was the right way to proceed. His approach consisted of operating from the front (through the abdomen) without incurring any cuts to the sensitive muscles in the back. This procedure is known as Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF). He removed the disc between the vertebrae and inserted a prosthesis to correct the stenosis. The prosthesis would in time fuse with the two vertebrae. The operation has been 100% successful. My wife’s activities will continue to be limited for several more months until the joint is completely stable. Beyond that, Dr. Montgomery predicts that she can do anything she wants. In all our interactions with Dr. Montgomery, we found him to be pleasant, spending all the time we needed to answer questions, and explained very clearly what he planned to do and how. His manner is confident but cautious. We would definitely recommend him for any surgical issues related to the spine.

    I definitely like Dr. Herzog. He does amazing work and knows how to get to the problem and make it feel better. I will continue to use him in the future.

    Overall the experience was perfect. Parking at the office building was a breeze and very convenient. The process once inside the building was seamless. Once the appointment had been made, the office sent via mail, a packet containing forms to be filled out regarding health history, primary physicians, etc. Once inside the office, handed over the packet of paperwork, paid the copay, saw the physician and then left. No fuss, no muss. Everyone in the office from the admitting staff, the radiology staff and the physicians was pleasant, informative, caring and attentive. I recommend this group to anyone who asks me about an orthopedic physician.

    Arrived 1/2 hour early to fill in new patient info. Was called the previous Friday to switch from Tuesday to Monday of same week. Did not see doctor until 5:00pm. Although I had all medication, supplements written down, as well as, when symptoms started to the day I arrived in his office, he still wrote a report with incorrect information that he could have gotten from my written info. The doctor knew immediately what was wrong. Since it was not his area of expertise he quickly moved me to the next step in my care. Rating is for time spent waiting and lack of attention to detail.

    He is also a spine surgeon. He told me I was not a good surgical candidate and to live with what I have. I have heard that for 9 years. I decided to take matters into my own hands and, through the internet, found another doctor who did perform the surgery I needed. It is always at least a 4 month wait to get in to see him. From what I understand he is a good surgeon, he just did not want to do my particular case.

    He treated me that I was like something that he stepped in!  This was the second time he had done this to me, I thought the first time that he moght have just had a bad day.  He told me that I should have cortizone medicine, and I explained to him that I had been getting them since 1970.  I have been told by other Doctors that it stays in your body.  I have had so many during the years that I am filled up to here with it, and I touched the top of my head.  He said no it only stays in the body for 60 days, and I am the one that went to Medical school, not you.  He told me the pain pills don't help you, they only tell your brain that it doesn't hurt.  He said a couple of very rude things to me, I walked out and was almost in tears.  I am not going back to him again.
