• What is a certified physician's assistant (P.A.-C.)?

    Certified Physician’s Assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. They conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventative health care, and also write prescriptions. They have immediate access to our physician and consult with her in complex cases or when patient desires

  • What if I need specialty care?

    We will assist you in obtaining specialty care by referring you to a specialist he or she feels is medically appropriate for your condition and coordinated with your insurance carrier.

  • Will you bill my insurance directly?

    Montes Medical Group is contracted with most major health plans, and we will submit claim forms to your insurance company on your behalf. Although if you do not have insurance, we will charge you a minimal fee for our services.

  • What's the difference between a physician and a certified physician's assistant?

    Unlike medical doctors, P.A.-C.’s study at schools that offer specialty training programs specifically for physician assistants. P.A.-C.’s study for three years after college as compared to the four years necessary to become an MD. And, P.A.-C.’s are not required to undertake a residency program, although many do. The primary difference, however, is that physicians have complete responsibility for patient care, while P.A.-C.’s share that responsibility with the supervising physician.

  • How do I schedule an appointment?

    We see all patients by appointment whenever possible and request that you call in advance or use the appointment request webpage to schedule your appointment. Please remember that because of the popularity of many of our care providers, you should book appointments although we do accept walk in patients.
