Dr. Monterroso is extremely detailed oriented and thorough. She is a Pulmonologist, and a super great critical care MD. She has picked up and diagnosed a few medical problems out of pulmonology and was able to refer me appropriately. She is caring and she always listened to your concerns. She is very knowledgeable and full of wisdom. I am extremely grateful to have her as my doctor. I feel safe and secure with the service she offers. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to find a great doctor.

A doctor who LISTENS as well as she hears. She really cares about her patient's wellbeing and will explore every knowledge and resource possible in that area to achieve resolution. My words are not enough to describe one of the best doctors in the field.

I am very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Monterroso as a new patient of hers I needed care immediately and she was the only Dr out of six that accommodated me under the circumstances, she assessed me and moved swiftly to get me all the necessary equipment I needed to stay out of the ICU, I am forever grateful to her for her compassionate care and concern for my well being and health, I highly recommend Dr. Monterroso to anyone who needs a kind compassionate and caring Pulmonlogist.
