My mom had the great fortune of coming across Dr. Montgomery when I was in desperate need of someone who would listen to me. I have been under Dr. Montgomery’s care for the past six weeks and have found myself in a completely different state of mind from when I first came here. Dr. Montgomery and her colleague Mrs. Peacock are true gems, and the work that these two amazing women do for their patients goes above and beyond what any other mental health professional will most likely provide to someone in desperate need. These two GET IT and I would recommend them to anyone I come across in the future who is in l need of an outstanding psychiatric team.
