I am satisfied with Dr Montgomery's care and the outcome of my surgery. I also chose to have reduction and reconstruction at the same time, so there would be just one surgery and recouperation. Dr Montgomery and staff coordinated the surgeries with Dr Colen and staff. I will say I searched out these options on my own, but when I stated what I wanted, everyone was on board and worked together. The Dr spends the time to listen and answer any questions

This woman should never see patients. Her affect is extremely obnoxious and demeaning. She talked to me as though I were an idiot. It took me years to get over her treatment of me at my consultation with her. Had I listened to her, I would be dead now. She told me that I was being overdramatic about wanting a double mastectomy and said I should have a lumpectomy and radiation. When I explained that I didn't want radiation, she simply pooh-poohed me. When I told her that most everyone I knew who had lumpectomies had recurrences, wouldn't it have simply been cells that were present but too small to detect ... Her response was, yes, that was probably the case. So why would I have a lumpectomy? I clearly didn't listen to her and found someone who gave me the double mastectomy, which saved my life. The pathology found invasive cancer in what was supposed to be the "prophylactic" breast. Had I listened to Dr. Montgomery, my outcome would have been quite different. This woman is all about statistics and belongs behind a microscope, not in front of patients.
