"As a general surgeon first and foremost is that I am treating a unique human being with at times complex medical and surgical history. Treating you is a privilege I do not take lightly! When I begin caring for my patients I determine whether each patient will benefit from a surgical intervention It is sometimes a more difficult decision NOT to operate.This decision we make together and in collaboration with your Primary Care Physician and other Specialists. Communication is a key element to effective health care and I believe we at The Villages Health provide superior coordinated care that results in better quality and patient outcomes. Whether it is a simple office excision or a complex robotic procedure, I will treat you like a family member with your best interests at heart."

I came in wearing two hearing aids and Dr. Monterro asked why I was wearing two hearing aids and I said “Well, I guess it’s because I have a hearing loss” and she said, “I understand that, but your hearing is perfect in your right ear, it’s the left ear that has a hearing loss and you only needed one hearing aid." I was very impressed with the honesty and integrity in addition to her skills. She also has a great personality.
