Carpal Tunnel Sydrome is a blindingly painful condition. I went to see Dr. Montgomery to ask about my options, including the possibility of surgery. Dr. Montgomery told me that he wanted a certain nerve test conducted and then he was about to leave the exam room. I said ""Wait. Please give me something for this horrible, extraordinary pain. He gave me a prescription and then I left his office and went straight to the pharmacy. While the medication did indeed work for the pain, the side effects were unacceptable. I called an M.D. friend of mine who told me in no uncertain terms that the medication he gave me is dangero8us when combined with a different medication that I take. I called Dr. Montgomery's oiffice and his answering service got him in touch with me. I explained the situation and he flippantly replied, ""then go off of it."" I said, ""But what about this pain?"" and he told me that he is a hand surgeon and that he does not deal with pain medication. I told him that that is absurd. He then told me to go to another doctor and I told him that no other doctor is going to prescribe anything because it is he who my treating doctor. He then said, very coldly, ""Just go to the Emergency Room."" And then he hung up on me!!
Thank you so much for your hostile and arrogant indifference to my horrible pain, Dr. Montomery.
Cons: Arrogant, Uncaring, Indifferent
