Since childhood, Dr. Jessica M. Montes was taught to respect elders. That grew into full-on advocacy when she became a geriatric physician. “At times, the senior population tends to be overlooked, which makes it even more important to focus on their well-being and health,” Dr. Montes shares. “For me, it’s an honor and privilege to provide the best care possible and work with them to improve quality of life.”
When not caring for patients or keeping up with the latest research, Dr. Montes loves to spend time with family and friends, go out to eat, watch movies, attend local events, visit the beach and travel. While Paris, France, tops her favorites, she hopes to one day visit Maldives, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Morocco, Iceland and Japan.
