Ratings for Dr. Craig T. Montgomery
Waited for nearly two hours for him. Talked more about his family, putting down women and my prior surgeons than discussing my issue. Spoke to the PA about what would be the best surgery for me without including me in the conversation despite my questions. Left me with extreme concerns regarding the urgency for surgery to avoid becoming a quadrapalegic. No clear answers on what my current limitations should be to avoid serious permanent disability. Extremely arrogant on top of all of that- which I could dismiss if he actually entertained my questions and saw me as having an opinion about a serious surgery on my spine. He will never come near my spine.
He and Dr robert Nolan did a laminectomy on me in Aug 2007, it FAILED. Then in Jan 2014 they dId a spinal fusion at three levels, failed again plus they nicked my dura and failed to properly repair it. Plus while I was recovering in St Josephs Hospital , they overdosed me on pain killers and nearLY killed me. I was released and went back TWICE to the ER for dura leakage, then more surgery to correct their ERROR. Montgomery + Nolan = NO THANKS
Dr. Montgomery is the most Incredible, very respectful, smart and the ultimate surgeon ever! Dr. Montgomery staff is the best ever. I had the best care and support from each and every one!! I am totally on the road to a full recovery from this incredible surgeon! God Bless him and all his staff!
If you don't mind being diagnosed with "Borderline Narcissistic Disorder and Depression" by a Neuro who talked to you for 4 minutes despite the fact you've never had any psychiatric issues or diagnosis, then he's your man! I went to him seeking help for a prosthetic disc problem to be lied to and have a nasty psyche diagnosis NOW PART OF MY PERMANENT Medical record. Funny I didn't know neuro's having the extra training psychiatrist's have. By ready for him to tell you your insurance company won't pay your medical bills if you smoke. When I told my provider that they categorically denied rejecting claims because of smoking. As a matter of fact they stated that would be illegal under our laws. Do yourself a favor find a real doctor that practices the specialty they went to school for as opposed to this wannbe psychiatrist!
Had the worst bedside manner of any physician I have ever been to in Upstate N.Y. After criticizing the previous surgeon, he changed his tune on my second visit after finding out that the surgeon merged with St Joe's. Due to this negligence I now have nerve damage. Furthermore he was extremely arrogant.
March 2005 I had a cervical fusion in three vertebrae in my neck. Other than eliminating certain sport activities as skiing per doctor's suggestions. I have been able to resume vigorous sports activities ie.weight lifting, mountain climbing. My age is 56.
