What Our Clients
Say About Us

While going through breast cancer treatment there were days that I felt less than a woman after I lost my hair and had a double mastectomy. Doctor Montante and his staff have always made me feel beautiful, even with no hair and no breasts. They have encouraged me and have given me confidence in myself.
After my surgery, I was finally free. I felt a lot better about myself and could not ask for anyone else to do the job. My life has changed for the better and now I am the happiest man alive. Thank you so much…
I am a dragon. Dragons are magnificent and free, flying through the universe making stars.
I remember in December 2014, Dr. Montante saying, “Don’t worry… we’ll get you there!” Boy did he ever!!! He advised me on my process as if I was one of his family members. That’s the way he treats his patients. Dr. Montante and Shelly – the most giving, caring, compassionate people I know. They will forever be my heroes and hold a special place in my heart!
