Ratings for Dr. Michael A. Mont
In 2005, I was referred to Dr. Mont after having my case reviewed and rejected by at least 20 surgeons around the country. I was a 25 year old female with Rheumatoid Arthritis that had destroyed my hips. The only thing doctors would do was prescribe narcotics and tell me to go home because I was to young and high risk for them to take on. I was a young mother at the end of my rope. My records were sent to Dr.Mont. Two days later I received a phone calll from Dr. Mont who said he could not make any promises but that if I was willing to make the trip he would like to do a more extensive evaluation. I went to Baltimore and was evaluated. Dr. Mont was very up front and said that my case was a difficult one but he thought that he could help. June 2005, I traveled back to Baltimore and had Bi lateral hip resurfacing. I was in the hospital for two weeks with the righthip being done on the first day and the left hip resurfacing performed on day 7. The surgeries were a success and after 8 weeks of rehabilitation I was narcotic free and able to chase after my 4 year old. Dr. Mont continues to help guide me through the ups and downs and works closely with my Rheumatologist to manage my other joints. This close collaboration between Dr. Mont and my Rheumatologist has preserved my knees and given me a quality of life that I could not have dreamed of. In July 2015, I was in a devistating car accident where I live. Dr. Mont was wonderful in providing over the phone consult to the trauma surgeons who were trying to save my leg. These efforts have allowed me to walk again and my knee was also able to be saved. So many times over the years Dr. Mont has stepped in and stepped up and has never given up on trying to help me retain my mobility. It is for these reasons and so many more that I do not have the time or space to write about that I will be following Dr. Mont wherever his career leads him. Over the years Baltimore became my second home. I am saddened that I will no longer get to visit Baltimore as often but I look forward to seeing Dr. Mont at the Cleveland Clinic. Thank you Dr. Mont, congratulations, and I will see you in December at the Cleveland Clinic!!!
If you're a little person/dwarfism do NOT and I mean do NOT even think about this man. He will destroy everything you've ever had go right. He isn't capable even though he will say otherwise and he will RUIN your skeletal system beyond repair. Next.. He will offer solutions that don't even make sense to the lay person ... He is horribly neglectful, unethical and his skills do NOT match his claims. Don't ever see this man.
Mont refused to treat me under the guise that he will be leaving the practice. However, his main concern was not my condition. He did not even LOOK at me. His main concern, as soon as he walked into exam room, over 1 hour late, was WHY I did not have him do my surgery. Unbelievable arrogance. Unbelievable ego. Unbelievably unprofessional and immature. He was like a petulant child. I would NEVER recommend him. Baltimore is well rid of him. I hope his childishness serves him well in Cleveland.
Beyond awful results. He's been sued 7 times for Med Malpractive. Please do your research, a dangerous man. Additionally, on 11/07/2012, he was charged with Reckless Driving which is public record. So not only is he a terrible surgeon, he probably shouldn't be driving either. Using google you can read the details but the lawsuits are: Tamera M Carter vs. Michael A Mont, Kimberly Keith vs. Michael A Mont, Darcel Heath-Jackson vs. Michael A Mont, Marilyn Task vs. Michael Mont, Freda Weinstein vs Michael A Mont, Michael Lawlor vs Michael Mont, and Thomas Krumrine vs. Michael Mont. Finding a lawyer to take your case is difficult, so these cases should not be ignored by future patients.
Dr. Michael Mont was never present before or after surgery. I don't know why there were number of obvious reviews that seemed too good to be true because it looks and sounded that it could have been done by either his staff or himself or anyone from his family. Yes, I know he had done so many replacements and done great but he has been lax now and been very much forgotten how he should see his patients before and after surgery to know that he cares about them. I just wish he could have stayed with compassion because he was that way when I first met him. He was very sweet when I first spoke to him. Time and money has changed his ways. His staff have had great ones before and some were still a bit helpful but it all changed when I started asking for more help because of excruciating pain every single day I have been having which was my complain. I didn't know what else to say. It made it impossible to walk now which I never imagined that would happen because I thought the reviews I read back then were real which says he was a great surgeon. After the surgery, I came out feeling so much pain which came out to be a huge mistake dine by Dr. Mont. It took like more than a year that I realized that my knee will not heal at all because something was terribly wrong. When it comes to those nurses at the preoperative office, they were very helpful and sweet. The Nurse Practitioner at preoperative was very good but when I stayed after surgery for few days, there were great nurses and there were horrible PCA in particular who did not even want to work. Rehab nurses were almost always hard to get and very lazy especially when I needed help to go to the bathroom. It took more than an hour sometimes before I get helped. . I don't I know for a fact that Dr. Mont made so many revisions which scared me to death. I didn't know what to do since he was the one who made the mistakes done on my knee so I figured he should be the one to correct that mistake. Well , he did it again! !! Ugh!!!! He was always overbooked and the wait was horrendous and he lets the fellows talk to patients. Staff like PCA's were not careful with my knee especially when they came hesitantly and helped me carry my leg down and up. I just screamed in so much pain. Watch yourselves!!! Do a research beforehand.
I made do with a first hip replacement for years, afraid to go in to find out about a possible revision. Wish I had gone sooner. Dr Mont's revision now is showing me what the first one should have felt like! Everything about office visits and surgery at Sinai were impeccable. Dr Mont is, in my opinion, a miracle worker. I have referred at least 5 friends to him, and they, too, have all agreed! Also, the scar is barely visible. He is amazing! Also very easy to ask questions. Love this guy!!! Don't hesitate. Also, their PT department was wonderful.
